Markus Rothkranz says heal yourself and heal the world

Who is Markus Rothkranz?

Markus Rothkranz is a film-maker, an artist, a model-maker, a designer, but also a motivational speaker and an expert on living on raw and healthy foods. He has worked on many Hollywood films including Total Recall but has branched off to make his own productions and has the ambitious venture of aiming to heal the world.

Markus suffered very bad health when he was much younger and in fact says he nearly died. By the age of 27 he had had heart problems, liver problems, had very bad sight and had suffered all sorts of serious illnesses but he found a way to change all that.

Markus Rothkranz discovered how to become fully fit and to actually reverse the ageing process, and now at the age of 48 with a slim figure and bursting with energy he astounds people when he tells them how old he is.

Markus Rothkranz's secret

Like so many people, who have discovered the health-giving secrets of eating a raw food diet, Markus Rothkranz has found that by eating only fresh fruit and vegetables that he could become well and stay well. But Markus also realised that the best source of nutrients for our bodies could be gathered for free. Wild plants that are often regarded as weeds contain the balance of minerals and vitamins our bodies need.

Markus says that God has provided us with everything we need to keep healthy right where we are and it doesn't have to cost us a lot of money spent at health stores. Instead we can go out and gather the plants we need.

Markus Rothkranz makes a smoothie from wild plants and fruit and vegetables he has and drinks this each day. He eats the flowers and leaves of weeds growing in his garden. He puts some in a blender along with chopped up fruit such as pineapple or whatever he has around.

Of course we do need to learn what plants are safe to eat, what they are recommended for, and we must take care not to gather them from places where they can be polluted with toxic traffic fumes or have been sprayed with a pesticide or herbicide.

As an example of an ideal wild food, Markus says that the dandelion provides a perfect food source. This is a common plant that everyone knows.

Markus abstains from drinking alcohol and smoking, and he doesn't take drugs of any kind. He has never touched recreational drugs and gave up pharmaceutical ones many years back when he discovered his pathway to glowing health.

He also thinks it is important to focus on the good things in life and that we need the body, mind and spirit all in harmony and in their best possible states of being.

Markus Rothkranz's philosophies on life

Markus Rothkranz is a very spiritual and philosophical man and a visionary thinker in many ways. He believes that if we first heal ourselves then we can go out and heal others. This is what he is aiming to do on a very big scale. Markus Rothkranz is aiming to heal the world!

Markus thinks that if people see how fit, happy and energetic another person is they will want to know how they achieved this. The information on how to be very healthy will spread that way, by example.

Markus has pointed out that animals don't get the diseases that humans suffer from like heart disease and diabetes if they are living in the wild. They only get these illnesses when they are being fed by people and are not getting the raw foods they would naturally eat.

He uses many examples to illustrate his beliefs and ideas. Markus asks what will we get if we plant some pasta, bread or processed cereal in the ground? The answer is mould because the foods are dead. But by contrast if we plant an apple then the seeds will germinate and can produce apple trees. The difference is that the apple is alive. This is a very good and understandable reason why we should eat raw foods.

God is a Woman

Markus Rothkranz has many ideas about the nature of the universe and he has also said that he believes that God is a woman. He points out that an ant colony is run by a queen ant.

Markus isn't saying that you should make a religion out of being healthy and eating raw foods only though because he says we should all go out and have fun and do stuff that we enjoy. He admits he himself goes to restaurants with friends on occasion but he is careful with what he orders and says he usually chooses several of the side dishes.

Clean up our insides

He stresses that we need to clean up our insides, that we need clean colons, and that foods like cheese clog them up. He says that he believes that our internal organs like the liver and kidneys are not just there to help process food but are actually energy converters. They process energy but cannot do so very well if clogged up with toxic pollution from what we have eaten and drank.

Markus Rothkranz is very much about getting us to ask questions and to think. He is offering workable solutions to how people can become happy and healthy. He is leading by example and as a role model. Do you feel inspired to follow?

I like Markus. I like some of things he talks about.

He is a very spirited guy. He is also a painter.

I wanted to tell you that Keith Emerson from the band Emerson Lake and Palmer is seriously ill. He just had to cancel a tour at 66 yrs old. He just had a series of operations. I wrote him a long letter about Dr. Stanley Bass and to contact Dr. Bass and told him that I am also an expert in natural healing. I offered up my support and told him that I am also an artist in the progressive genre. Send all your prayers towards Keith at this time. I am a big fan of ELP. They lead hard lives these musicians.

Hi Marissa! Thanks for your comments and sharing the news of Keith Emerson which I hadn't heard about. I pray that he listens to you and gets well again!

This is the link from Greg Lake's site reporting the major operations that Keith Emerson has been under-going. They don't mention what is wrong with him. Possibly open heart surgury. Just a guess.

Anyway. Markus is a good example of health but I don't think the vegan diet is good on a long term basis. I like what Markus says about foraging and being clean. I think that Dr. Bass and Bernardo's diet are my favorites.

W H O A .......loved this. Everything we need is here, free. Not only can we put the docs out of work! Dandelion's soon will be illegal. Glad I'm a fan of yours. Oh, just noticed you have 420 hubs, congrats.

I totally agree, Dr Wendy, and by hearing him speak and watching him on video I could see he puts into practice something I know about but don't apply very much in my own life - namely the daily use of wild foods. So he has inspired me to make a change for the better!

Glad you liked this hub too, Johnwindbell!

I have known about dandelion for a long time, but I don't know why I am scared to pick them and eat them from my yard.


Bard of Ely profile image

Bard of Ely 5 years ago from Lisbon, Portugal Author

They should be OK! Rinse them if you like. Just eat a leaf or a stem or a flower to get you started. You can eat the entire plant like Markus says. I used to make dandelion root coffee years ago and have eaten the roots. I like the stems best. It is probably the best plant to start with because it is so unmistakeable and common.

Here is a great video of Markus's house. Angela Stokes and Matt Monarch come to Markus's house and he is an interesting artist and painter who has very interesting things in his house near LA in California. It is very hollywood. I like this video because he is not the average guy. He is a bit off. That is why I like it.

Great hub bub! This is a healthy message! The author of the first book called "Roots" was not written by Alex Haley but by Doug Elliot. Doug's book was about roots in the ground. Doug would make a salad from a front yard. He's now a storyteller in the mountains of NC. But yes, the food is out there. Great message. We should "break away" from our "norms". Great hub!

I have already seen it but thanks, Marissa! I told Markus about this thread and he replied thanking me.

Thank you for your comments too, Micky!

This is a guy you would like a lot. He is much like you are Bard. He is never into wearing a shirt ususually. ahahah and he loves the outdoors, hiking, foraging, and has a very positive attitude. His name is Dan the Man.

He is a motivational person but not touring with his messsage. He is very health conscience and helping some people on his own. I like his personality because he is very positive and healthy.

Thank you for introducing me to him, Marissa! I will have a look at the video now!

Let me know what you think of him. He is quite rugged. I have been indoors a lot in the snowy weather. I occasionally go outside. He makes me feel as if I am weak and frail. I need to go outside!

Bard of Ely 5 years ago from Lisbon, Portugal Author

He is really fit, I can see that! I am watching it now but it's taking ages to load.

This guy is educating me in this video. I do not know much about calcification (however you spell it)

Gorgeous outdoors video as well. He is a simple person who just loves the outdoors and health. He never wears a shirt. He is a real caveman in the modern world. I like when people educate me on areas that I am not aware of. This is a very good video of Dan the Man in hot springs. Peace out.

Bard of Ely 5 years ago from Lisbon, Portugal Author

Yes, I think he really knows his stuff and have just been watching a couple more of his videos! I appreciate you telling me about Dan! Thanks again!


Marissa 5 years ago

It is amazing that Dan the Man has 28000 subscribers and he has been up since 2007. A lot of people like this guy.

He has an exhuberant personality and he is extremely outdoorsy. He also camps, forages and he ususally outdoors when he speaks with no shirt on. I am sure it is not just because he doesn't wear a shirt ahahah, but he helped some guy lose 100 pounds from his youtube videos and then they met each other on the street and they video taped it. It was great.

Bard of Ely 5 years ago from Lisbon, Portugal Author

Yes, he is very real and has a lot of knowledge to share! I am not surprised so many people like him! He is also a lot fitter than I am because you wouldn't find me out and about on a snowy mountain with no shirt on! lol

Bard if you were fit, you wouldn't be so obsessed with writing articles about young women with flawless skin and how they are jealous of lethargic aged hags. Why not go out and hike. I run my stairs everyday and try to ski outside when I can. It is snowing a lot here with big storms. A lot of aged haggard men are harassing me on the net because they don't go outside the door. You write about what is going on that is bad in the world or about health. Why not DO something. I spend a lot of time outside ususually or taking care of my health and exercising, dancing. I don't come on the net insulting haggard women who have health problems.


Bard of Ely profile image

Bard of Ely 5 years ago from Lisbon, Portugal Author

I don't know what you are on about seeing as I am not obsessed as you say and haven't written any articles about "young women with flawless skin and how they are jealous of lethargic aged hags". I do do a lot of stuff but much of it not outside I admit because I have to work at writing or I simply don't have enough money coming in. The weather here has been cold and with cloudy grey skies or raining and that doesn't inspire me to go out either. I am well aware that you are experiencing much worse weather in America but that is great that you ski so can do that if it snows. I am sorry you have men harassing online!

What a good message Markus has for us all. I do use dandelions, nettles in the spring, fresh herbs from my garden in the summer and blackberries, hawthorn leaves and berries in the fall. They really work in a general beneficial way and I look forward to the spring again after the winter. It's great to use things so close and I'm glad that he is promoting all this and more. Thanks so much for bringing him here.

That is really great that you are already using some wild foods! Markus thinks we should be using them daily and that is something I have to admit I haven't done in the past although I know about these plants. He has inspired me to make some changes!

I do love one that looks like he practices what he preaches. Nothing worse than going to a beautician who has a head of messy hair. This eating wild food sounds intriguing. Thanks for sharing.

I was impressed by how he practises what he preaches too!
