The following section was written many years ago by our dad, Dr. Max Barlow.

“On the eastern slopes of the Sierra-Nevada Mountains grows a very important plant in the Parsley Family. The western Indians have long used this plant to prevent and treat many ailments.

Botanically called Lomatium dissectum, because of its long, slender, hollow stem and its oil producing
linear glands in the ripening seeds. The Indians called the medicinal root of this plant “the Dortza”,
meaning – “heap powerful medicine.” The Washoe Indians collected the root in September and October when the richest supply of oils was concentrated in the large underground root. At least five or six gums, oils and oleoresins are present in the very aromatic root. After collecting the root, they sliced it
longitudinally, exposing the volatile oils to the oxidizing (polymerization) effects of the air, which converts the oils to a stabilized resin. The cured root would then be hung to dry from the ceiling of their hogan until it was needed.

During the flu pandemic of 1917-1918, the root came into extensive use by the two Washoe Indian tribes near Carson City, Nevada. Dr. E.T. Krebs Sr., the contract physician who was assigned by the U.S.
government to the Washoe Indians, was dumbfounded to find that these two groups of Indians were free from respiratory illness and that no deaths had been attributed to the influenza “bug.” This was especially amazing because both Indians and white people were “dying like flies” throughout the entire region, the nation and the world. Spotting the dried root hanging from their hogans, Dr. Krebs asked what it was and what its use was. He was told it was “heap powerful medicine,” and that it was used to prevent colds and the flu. He asked if he could try this medicine on some of his white patients and, after making a crude preparation and giving it to his non-Indian patients in San Francisco, he said, “They just stopped dying.”

How it works: Scientific investigation of the plant reveals that the volatile oil factions in the root contain the antiviral/antibiotic ingredient. Also present are powerful anti-bacterial/anti-fungal properties. The Lomatium dissectum extract has a viro-static effect, meaning that it stops the growth of all viruses, bacteria and fungus in the body and eliminates the lethal micro-organisms without harming the ones necessary to good health. The effectiveness of Lomatium dissectum in eliminating infections and restoring health is an incredible gift from Mother Nature.

Extensive work has been done by over five universities on Lomatium dissectum. It is a powerful, nontoxic, viro-static against flu viruses, the trachoma virus, the Lansing Polio viruses, and numerous other
viruses. 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 1948)

About the time this report was published, ‘miracle’ sulfa drugs began to be widely promoted. In the
interest of being ‘modern,’ no one wanted to use an old Indian remedy. With renewed interest in some natural remedies, Dr. Krebs Jr. passed on the extracting techniques developed by his father to Dr. Max Barlow. The extract is made today in an alcohol-based tincture known as LDM-100.

Since LDM-100 is anti-viral, 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.

As the above quote from the Journal of Bacteriology indicates, Lomatium dissectum is also effective against molds and fungi. Thus, many Barlow Herbal users are seeing great results in fighting Candida albicans with our extract (when taken orally). LDM-100 will clear up most yeast infections. A drop between the toes will eradicate athlete’s foot.

LDM-100 may be taken as a preventative against viral infections or solely during high-risk periods. This wonder drug of nature inhibits growth and reproduction of viral organisms, rendering them inactive, thus enabling white blood cells to do their job.

It should be noted that some people may experience a one-time detox rash from an oil faction found in
Lomatium dissectum; as is possible from contact with any plant. The rash ranges from mild to full body and can be extremely itchy and uncomfortable. Such a reaction can be quickly overcome by taking Dandelion Root, Vitamin C, and Pantothenic Acid. Two days of only fresh juices has been found to speed up the detox process. The addition of fresh squeezed wheat grass juice is also extremely helpful. One can discontinue use of LDM-100 temporarily.

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. It is also recommended to gradually increase quantity and frequency. 1 to 2 drops for babies added to water or juice.”

Jane here. My dad has been gone for over 22 years now and I feel that while much of the information about Lomatium has stayed the same - there have been some interesting things I’ve learned and come to believe about Lomatium and it’s effect on the human body.
I’ve talked to other herbalists who are very familiar with Lomatium and have used a fresh root extract of it and have never seen the detox rash. It appears that part of the power comes from curing and oxidizing the Lomatium root after it’s been wildcrafted. Letting all of the oils cure and dry before putting the roots into the extraction process, in my opinion - changes the medicinal properties of Lomatium.
Lomatium is a broad spectrum anti-microbial and I’ve seen it handle viral, fungal, yeast and some types of bad bacterial issues. I’ve come to believe that Lomatium’s special gift to humans is it’s anti-viral properties. I wouldn’t want to live my life without it and it’s been a true game changer when it comes to taking care of my kids and now my grand-kids. My biggest hope for you is using this information to help you stay healthy and well. Please know that I am not a doctor and anything I share with you is not meant to be medical advice.

Lomatium Dissectum Detox Rash Information
If you are new to the plant Lomatium, please read this information all the way through.
Lomatium can cause a one-time detox rash in some people when taking it for the first time. It is not a
dangerous or contagious rash, but it can be a scary, uncomfortable and a very emotional detox.

Start with a very small dosage when taking a Lomatium product 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. In capsule form (SEES-Plus) 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 (LDM-100 or MunityBoost).

Most little kids and teenagers do not get the rash. If they do, it is typically much less intense and clears out very quickly. A small, starting dose for a child would be 1-3 drops once a day for the first week.
If no rash, then increase and use accordingly.

LDM-100 preceded by MunityBoost is very effective for all kinds of viral, fungal, yeast and some types of
bacterial infections. Although there is much less chance of it, MunityBoost can cause the detox rash just like straight LDM-100 can. MunityBoost is 25% LDM-100.

What we’ve come to believe is that a viral or fungal load has been “stuck” in the tissues and Lomatium gives your body the opportunity to push out through your skin (your largest organ). We’ve seen many people on a Lomatium protocol completely eradicate long standing, systemic viral and fungal issues. Even ones that lay dormant for long periods of time.

If someone is going to get this detox reaction, then it will happen with a small amount or a large amount. It will only happen once for most people who get the rash. Over the years we have had a small handful of
people get a light rash a second time but only those who waited a long time between taking it for the first time and then taking it again. Usually a year or more. Please remember that it’s not dangerous or contagious. Just extremely uncomfortable and itchy.

It usually proceeds like this: The rash will typically show up between 5-7 days after taking Lomatium. It looks like measles at first and then will progressively get worse before it starts to get better. It can show up
anywhere on the body and then spread. If someone has had chronic UTI’s then the rash usually shows up on the lower torso near the kidneys. If someone has had chronic chest/lung infections, then the rash usually shows up on the chest first before it spreads to the rest of the body. Sometimes it shows up randomly on a certain body part. There can be swelling, fever and purple looking welts. The extremities are usually the last parts of the body to get the rash. Legs and arms. It is also normal for ears, nose and face to swell a little.
Some people get a light rash that covers only small parts of the body and is gone in 2-3 days.
Most people get the full deal. And it usually goes solid and looks like a sunburn.

A couple of guidelines: You can lower the dose and keep going or you can stop taking it until the rash is gone and runs its course or some people prefer to stop until the rash is gone simply because it makes them feel better to stop what caused the rash in the first place. It won’t make the rash go away quicker if you stop but it’s up to everyone individually.

It is very important to stay hydrated with lots of water. This will give your body a chance to truly flush the
toxins out. Lots of fresh, green juicing also helps to nourish you through this detox quickly. Stay away from fried food, junk food, processed food, soda, milk and dairy and most meat while your body is detoxing. Your body works very hard to digest, process and eliminate food and if you take a break from eating all together (fresh juice only) for 2-3 days – the rash will clear up much quicker. Even if you eat clean, taking a break from food will be extremely beneficial. If you simply can’t juice fast, then eat as clean as you can. Everyone knows what that means.

There are some supplements we’ve found to help the rash clear up a little quicker. Number one is Dandelion root. You can get it in liquid form, capsule form or tea. Dandelion root is a very well-known liver support and detox. When the liver is supported the body is better able to handle the powerful viral/fungal detox of
Lomatium. Look at our LiverLove product. It is a specific blend for detoxing and supporting the liver and
gallbladder. Consider going through a full bottle of LiverLove prior to starting Lomatium. If you already have the rash, then it will help you to take some form of Dandelion root during the rash.

We also suggest high dose Vitamin C. 5000 mg per day for an adult. Activated Charcoal is also a helpful detox tool and will help your body process the detox without your skin having to take it all.

The Lomatium rash usually gets extremely itchy to the point of being unable to sleep for a night or two. Taking an Epsom salt bath once or twice a day is very beneficial and can soothe and nourish the skin while the rash is running its course. Some people get up in the middle of the night to take an Epsom salt bath as well. Use Coconut Oil or Emu oil to smooth on the skin to relieve the itching.

Some people will feel an increase in energy while the rash is doing its thing and some people feel quite the opposite and feel extremely fatigued. The rash is not contagious so if you feel good then just carry on as
usual. For some people this detox rash is an intense, emotional experience. This is a healing crisis.
Sometimes you must get worse before you can get better. If you are tired, then rest as much as you can to let your body heal. There is no doubt this rash is miserable to go through, but your body is doing a smart thing.

A couple of wonderful things to know about Lomatium.
1) Your body doesn’t appear to build an immunity to the plant Lomatium. So, you can take it for long periods of time while your body is healing from long standing systemic, viral/fungal/yeast issues.
It is common for many people to take a preventative dose every day during cold and flu season or when they travel. Especially when getting on an airplane. A solid preventative dose for an adult is 1/2 dropperful (approx. 25 drops) once or twice a day.
2) You can safely increase the dosage until it does the job. Due to our extensive, lifelong use of Lomatium we have used LDM-100 (25-50 drops each time) every hour on the hour to clear up UTI’s, ear infections, cold, flu and other acute
infections.

Here are some of the issues I've used it for during my more than 40 years experience with Lomatium.

1) on Warts and toe/fingernail Fungus (topically and internally)
2) to Knock down cold sores caused by the Herpes virus
3) to clear up a tooth abscess
4) to gargle with before swallowing to keep mouth bacteria-free
5) for UTI’s (Urinary tract infections)
6) for Ear infections (taken internally and a drop or two directly in the ear)
7) for Strep infections
8) for the Common Cold, Flu, Congestion, runny nose, etc…
9) for Asthma
10) for Bacterial infections
11) for Respiratory tract infections
12) for tonsillitis (early stages)
13) for Bronchitis
14) for Vaginal infections (douche and internally)
15) for Candidas
16) for Chronic fatigue syndrome
17) for Skin infections (topical in the form of Golden Salve or extract)
18) for Hay fever
19) for EBV (Epstein-Barr virus)
20) for Mononucleosis
21) for HPV (Human Papillomavirus)

As you can see, the pure root extract of Lomatium dissectum has amazing medicinal properties.
So… whether you’ve been using LDM-100 for many years or you’re just starting to use it, broaden your
horizons in your applications and watch the wonderful results!
LDM-100 can be taken straight or diluted in a small amount of water or juice. (Juice is nice for small children or taste sensitive adults.) We have been using it since the mid 1970’s.


Note: Please use your common sense when using herbal medicine to treat yourself and your family. If chronic conditions persist or worsen please see a qualified health care professional.
Modern medical technology can enhance and even save your life in the right situation.

Taking the time to educate yourself about plant medicine is a critical component of using it correctly and safely for your every day needs.

I first read about Lomatium in February, just as the pandemic fears were starting to spread around the world. At that time I was very sick with the virus symptoms, and though I wanted to jump right in to using Lomatium I was afraid of getting the detox rash. So I began very slowly by taking one drop of Lomatium a day for a week, then 2 drops a day for another week, etc. It took me 6 weeks to fully recover from the virus and I never got the rash. I’m grateful to have this natural herb in my health toolkit and I continue to take 10 drops twice a day during these dangerous times.

My wife Christy, a great researcher, found out about Lomatium while researching naturopathic treatments for viruses. I do house calls, seeing mostly elderly people confined to their homes, and Christy is terrified that I might catch the Corona virus during the current pandemic. I do all the CDC recommended preventatives – hand washing with soap and water, hand sanitizer, gloves, a face mask with a 5-layer carbon filter, as well as some they do not recognize: Lomatium, elderberry and others. We both rest more easily knowing Lomatium’s history and effectiveness, especially since we are both immunocompromised due to treatment for Rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases.

Needs to be researched vs the COVID-19 virus. The virus fits the bill but need to start with evidence of it fighting the sickness. Anyone yet have experence?… I have a mason jar of lomacium root that we dug and processed 4 years ago with some friends from Nelson BC. I take it in small doses when sickness is around and increase it when I feel a sinus tickle. It does effectively coat the throat where the virus lurks trying to enter the lungs. I take it now because of the asymptomatic spread happening.

A little over a week ago was my first time using lomatium and dove right in dosing a tincture every 2 hours. I totally got the rash! Boy did I get it 😂 I have been fighting off an antibiotic resistant uti that turned into slight kidney infection, lomatium has been tremendous in improving these infections for me.
Some strange swelling in the center of my upper lip has occurred (such a weird placement lol) and when I sleep my tonsols swell up, but when I wake up they reduce greatly in size, although are still slightly enlarged. Could you perhaps provide any knowledge as to why my tonsols would be affected
Love this product and the way it makes me feel
It seems that with powerful medicines, a purging of sorts is almost necessary

I’ve used this since I was a child. My family has used lomatium to beat and treat colds, flus and the like. As I’ve gotten older though, I’ve stopped taking it as often. More like once every year or so while visiting my grandparents lol well last year I took it and swished it around my mouth as I usually do, and it burned so badly. I woke up the next day with terrible blisters all over the inside of my cheeks and gums. Like an allergic reaction almost. No rash occurred, but I took a whole droppers full back then and tried maybe three drops yesterday with a much milder version of blisters in my mouth as the last time. Lol my tongue even hurts and feels swollen. Just wondering if that means I’m allergic now or I’ve got some nasties I’ve got to purge? Thanks!! I’ve seen miracles with the herb so I’d hate to have to chuck it out of my life completely just when I’m bringing it back lol x

Thank you so much for this great article. I did read in this article if you strain the top part of the lomatium off of tea, you can avoid the rash. Have you tried that with the tincture? I have some infusing and find it interesting that it is very separated. My son has pretty bad asthma and I was hoping to start him on it now _ we are in full quarantine. What would you recommend?
Thank you,

Thank you so much for this amazing article. I manage a nature preserve in the Eastern Sierra where this amazing plant grows abundantly. It is hard to find the old knowledge on the preparation techniques so I got especially excited to hear about the drying step you discuss This is extremely important I believe. I have a few more questions if you don’t mind. Is the root skin peeled or the root just cleaned and sliced with skin in tact? Also I heard somewhere that the Washoe would make something like a potato cake and eat the root. Do you have any more information you could share in regards to how they consumed the plant? Thanks again, definitely one of my top native herbs along with peonia brownii. All the best,

Had the 2020 severe flu (NOT COVID-19), and as always I developed bronchitis. After week of illness, I started using Lomatium & Olive leave extract to treat the hacking cough/brochitis. After a week, the bronchitis broke!! (It always takes at least 2 weeks to stop the brochitiis (before Lomatium.)) Two days later, the rash developed on upper chest and entire back. Had some difficulty sleeping the fourth night (lots of energy), but the rash is not excessively itchy.

I’ve tried everything to get rid of something happening in my throat. Lomatium looks like exactly what I need. I will try it. I’m also interested in the question a previous post said: “Could you shine a little light on this, tea vs. tincture, pros, cons,your experience as Herbalists.” Thanks for your education and dedication towards natural health.

I started taking Lomatium tincture during flu season in 2020. I came to this site looking to see if there was any mention of vivid dreams upon taking it. Both me and my friend that started taking it together are having the same experience.The dreams are vivid, telling and profound.

Unfortunately I’m one of the few that get the rash. Took it a year ago and had the rash on my face looked and felt like poison ivy😔 However it was worth it. Well I thought I could take it a year later without the rash wrong. It’s on my buttocks,hands, arms and face. I do have systemic yeast from all my surgeries and post chemo😏And problems with mold . But it makes me feel amazing so I will continue. Love your product and won’t wait so long between treatments 😜

Thanks for all the great history and information about Lomatium. I never heard about the rash aspect. I’ve been using Lomatium for many years at low to very high doses and never got a rash. Love the powerful results. Good for getting deep congestion and phlegm out of the lungs and bronchioles. Has helped me and many patients through bad colds and flu. Great to hear about all the other uses. I am grateful for your experience with it. Keep up the Fantastic work. I will be contacting you to get some of your products. Be Well. Thanks again Jane.

Thank you for all of the information. I just bought a bottle, started today. I’ve been ill with upper respiratory infection, but my immune system is weakened by an undiagnosed fungal infection. I had lived in a mold home, next door to a plant nursery turned livestock farm. The animals were dying, and my health declined at that address… I thought I had m.s. We moved and I have been using natural protocol. Bought a usb endoscope/microscope. So helpful. It took 8 mos. to be able to see a dermatologist, they did a biopsy; still awaiting the results. I do not want them to treat me, I just want a positive i.d. on these things coming out of me. No more antibiotics for me.

Love ♥ Love ♥ Love Lomatium !
I recommend it to everyone who has any of the listed symptoms, and diect them to your video’s and websight. I get so excited b/c it helps them get through what their goin thru!!
There is 1 person who states they get very loose bowels after taking it. I can’t see anywhere on the internet that this is a side-effect or symptom. I know we are ALL different, but this doesn’t sound typical of lomatium, to me. Could you provide some of insight on this (perhaps email me if you don’t want this comment on your blog—THX :) )?
