Lomatium dissectum, LDM-100

Lomatium dissectum, also called LDM-100 in tincture form.

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 the lungs.

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 fall short.

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.

Common name:

Desert parsley

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.

Active constituents:

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)
