Before we had modern medicine with instant prescription medications,
we used the wisdom of native plants to help our bodies heal or recover from infections. As more and more people reportedly
suffer from the side-effects of drugs or find themselves allergic to many of its types, plant-based remedies are becoming
more and more popular again.
What's more, plant-based remedies address the body's natural ability to
potentially remove the cause rather than mask the symptom.
Lomatium has many distinctive applications. It has the ability
to suppress the growth of 62 types of bacteria and fungi, a very impressive performance for any plant, and also has good
antibacterial and antiviral action. Lomatium is employed for treating influenza, coughs, colds, sore throats, and disorders
such as hay fever, bronchitis, tuberculosis and pneumonia. It provides quick-acting relief in cases of viral or bacterial
infection, particularly when there are large amounts of thick mucous and infection that are deep-seated and persistent in

Lomatium Dissectum was widely employed medicinally by many native
North American Indian tribes who considered it to be a universal panacea and used it especially in treating chest problems
and skin complaints. This is an important Native American Pacific Northwest anti-viral herb. It works where other anti-virals
Lomatium Dissectum is another herbal medicine that had its discovery in the American Indian tribes of
North America. During the fall of 1918 when the influenza epidemic visited a region of Nevada, the Washoe Indian tribe used
Lomatium in the treatment of their sick. Weather a coincidence or not, there was not a single death in the Washoe tribe
from influenza or its complications, while other Indians living in other parts of the State where the root did not grow
died in numbers.
Lomatium dissectum is a member of the parsley family. It was used extensively by Native Americans in
the Northwest U.S. and Northern Nevada, where it grows commonly.
Parts used and where grown:
The root of lomatium is used medicinally. The plant is
native to and continues to grow in western North America.
Historical or traditional use:
Native Americans of many tribes employed lomatium root to treat a wide
variety of infections, particularly those affecting the lungs. Lomatium was used, particularly in the southwestern United
States, during the influenza pandemic of 1917 with reportedly good results.
Tetronic acids and a glucoside of luteoling appear to be
the main anit-microbial agents in lomatium rood.1 Little is known about how these compounds act or if other ones might be
as important. The resin fraction ocasionally causes a whole-body rash in some people. Another set of constituents, known
as coumarins, may also contribute to the onset of rash.
Side effects or interactions:
Use of extracts containing the resin (and possibly
the coumarins) can, in some people, cause a whole-body rash. The safety of lomatium during pregnancy and lactation is unknown
and is therefore not recommended. At the time of this writing, no evidence of drug interactions with lomatium was found
in the medical literature. (Monday 12 June, 2006)The LDM-100 is a very strong tincture! If dropped under the tongue
it will burn for a few seconds!
