Discover the power of plant-based medicine
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.
What's more plant-based remedies address the body's natural ability to potentially remove the cause rather than mask the symptom. Experience the ease and wonder of Lomatium Dissectum (LDM-100), one of nature's greatest remedies to help the body.
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. They used it for colds, flu and upper respiratory infections but many other uses have also been noted.
In 1918, Dr. Ernst Krebs, M.D., who lived in Carson City, Nevada discovered that people of the Washoe nation seemed to be recovering well from an influenza epidemic.
He asked some of the elders about their medicine. They called it "Toh-sa" or "Do-sa" and showed him how to prepare it. Dr. Krebs noticed its biting odor of balsamic resins and called it Balsamea. However, botanists later named it Lomatium Dissectum when they classified it. It is commonly called "biscuit root" as native used the pulp to pound into cakes, sometimes also known as the name, "Indian carrot".
Lomatium dissectum is a member of the parsley family growing in semi-arid climates in the northwest. Its large root has given it the name "biscuit root." This plant has traditionally been used to fight many infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis.
Today, wildcrafted lomatium is a part of many herbal formulas for relieving common colds and the flu.
Cultivation: Not well understood at present. In the wild Lomatium dissectum grown on rocky slopes, frequently facing south, in semi-arid areas. Probably requires a warm period followed by a cold season and then another warm period.

Common name: Desert parsley
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.
If you are new to LDM-100 or SEES-2000 (Lomatium dissectum) you could develop a one-time detox rash. By some estimates approximately, one person in six can be affected by this rash. This rash can cover a small percentage of the body or be full body. It can be itchy, swollen and very uncomfortable and sometimes accompanied by a fever and purple welts.
If you have never used Lomatium we recommend taking Dandelion root either in liquid or capsule form for a few days prior to taking Lomatium and continue taking Dandelion root for the first week of taking Lomatium. This seems to help the body process the detox reaction and in most cases lessen the chances of a rash, the severity of the rash in people who still get it and in some cases - prevent it altogether.
You should always start with a very small dosage when taking Lomatium for the first time. A very small dosage of the liquid Lomatium (LDM-100) would be 5-10 drops in water once a day for the first week for adults. You can even start with 1-5 drops once a day for the first week. And in capsule form (SEES-2000) one capsule once a day for the first week is considered a small dosage. It is easier to start with a smaller dosage when Lomatium is in liquid form.
Other Common Names: Carrotleaf Biscuitroot, Chocolate-tips, Cough Root, Fernleaf Biscuitroot, Fernleaf Lomatium, Lepotaenia, Leptotaenia, Lomatium dissectum
Range: Western N. America- southwards from Alberta and British Columbia.
Habitat: Open, often rocky slopes and dry meadows, often on talus Fernleaf biscuitroot was widely employed medicinally by many native North American Indian tribes who considered it to be a universal panacea. They used it especially in treating chest problems and skin complaints. This is an important native American Pacific Northwest anti-viral herb. Works where other anit-virals fall short.
Fresh root (alcoholic) extract is the best mode of administration. Lomatium was used, particularly in the southwestern United States, during the influenza pandemic of 1917 with reportedly good results. Although it is little, if at all, used in modern herbalism. It probably warrants further investigation.

Research shows that the plant has a "viro-static effect", which means that it halts the growth of all viruses and bacteria. That let's the body's own natural immune system get rid of harmful or deadly micro-organizms without damaging the ones necessary for maintaining good health and restoring the immune system.
Five universities have done extensive research on Lomatium Dissectum.
By 1944, the Journal of Bacteriology reported: "The anti-biotic activity of oil factions separated from the root of Lomatium Dissectum was determined on 62 strains and species of bacteria, molds, and fungi. The heat-stable active agent was bactericidal for gram-positive bacteria at 10-4 dilutions and at 10-3 for gram-negative bacteria." (Journal of Bacteriology, Vol. 55 No. 5 May 1994)
Just about the time this information was released, sulfa drugs were proving to work miracles so interest in plant-based medicines waned in favor of modern prescription medicine.
Below are suggestions for your education and information. Check with your doctor if you have any concerns using herbs along with your medications. We can not provide information to that effect.
Typically 3 to 5 drops sublingually 4 to 8 times a day for 10 to 14 days or as desired. Since LDM-100 is viro-static, the dosage depends upon the strength (or weakness) of the body's natural immune system. LDM-100 is completely natural and non-toxic; therefore, the dosage may be safely increased until it takes effect.
For normal use: 1/3 of a dropper taken orally or mixed in water or juice, two or three times a day will support the immune system to combat respiratory involvements as well as flu and colds. The same amount gargled (and swallowed) will help the throat almost immediately.
For topical use: A drop or two should be applied topically for infected sores three to four times a day.
For Candida Albicans (orally): Lomatium Dissectum also helps the immune system against molds and fungi. As a result, many herbal users are seeing great results in fighting Candida Albicans with this extract (when taken orally).For Candida Albicans (as a douche)
For Athlete's Foot: A drop between the toes will eradicate athlete's foot. For Viruses: Mix the drops with water or juice and take orally.
For First Aid: This product is a must for every household first-aid kit, both at home and during travel.
Remember all natural products support your body’s innate ability to heal itself. So the amount you take depends on your choices.
Adults: 3 to 10 drops, 3 to 5 times daily, or more. It is suggested to begin with a low dosage and frequency and gradually increase. Keep dosage low for the first 7 days and then increase as needed.
Children: 3 to 4 drops, 4 to 6 times daily. Also recommended to gradually increase quantity and frequency. 1 to 2 drops for babies added to water.
LDM-100 may be mixed with water or juice. It should be noted that about one in six people are allergic to an oil faction found in Lomatium Dissectum and may experience a rash when taking this herb, as is possible from contact with any plant. The rash ranges from mild to full body and can be itchy and uncomfortable.
Reported possible support: Such a reaction can be quickly overcome by taking Vitamin C, Panthenic Acid, or any of the antihistamines and one should discontinue use of LDM-100 temporarily.
