In recent years, Lomatium has been widely used for upper respiratory tract infections, both viral and bacterial in origin. It may slow or halt the progression of a cold or flu, or help with asthma and bronchitis, and can be helpful in severe states of immunodeficiency. Lomatium is also an effective helper in fighting Candida. When used to help fight yeast, Lomatium may be rotated with our other yeast fighters, four days each. Anecdotally, some parents of autistic children have reported symptom improvements while using Lomatium.
An early study of Lomatium dissectum (1948) showed some level of inhibition of the growth of all 62 strains and species of bacteria and fungi tested. The infection strains tested included Clostridia, Candida, Shigella, Pseudomonas, E. coli, Staphylococcus. Aureus, Streptococcus, Diplococcus pneumonia, Corynebacterium diptheria, Hemphilus influenza, Neisseria gonorrhea and Tuberculosis. This list illustrates the broad range of infections which Lomatium may help with.
A small number of individuals see a rash when using Lomatium. This is believed to be a cleansing reaction, and is not dangerous. If a rash is seen, reduce dosage, and it should subside in a few days. Some herbalists suggest taking Oregon Grape or Dandilion along with Lomatium, to reduce the chance of a rash. Discontinue use if rash lasts more than a week. Consult your practitioner if needed.
