Lomatium - Lomatium dissectum in the Umbelliferae or Parsley family

Part used: Root.

Taste/smell: Resinous, aromatic.

Dosage: Infusion: 1-2 teaspoons of cut and crushed root, infused for 25 minutes; or a 1:1.5 fresh strength liquid extract: 10-30 drops 1-4 times per day.

Use: (a) Antifungal, (b) Antibacterial, (c) Antiviral, (d) Immunomodulator.

Lomatium is used for colds, flu, viral infections, fungal infections, bacterial infections and specifically for hard to treat infections of the urinary tract or respiratory tract.

Contraindications: Ingestion of the fresh plant root and fresh plant products has produced a skin rash in some individuals that disappears in 5-7 days after the plant is discontinued. Lomatium isolates with the resins extracted were created as a way for people to use lomatium and bypass the possibility of getting a rash. Some individuals get contact dermatitis from this plant.
