Lomatium dissectum is considered among many Native American tribes as one of the Bear Medicines (along with Osha and Arrowleaf Balsamroot) since in spring it sends up parts resembling furry, brown paws. Bear Medicine plants were used to heal the heart, liver and lungs.
Cautions: Some people have experienced rashes as a side effect. Lomatium should be taken in small doses. If too much is taken (exceeding seventy drops per day), a rash can occur. Should this happen, discontinue use of Lomatium. The rash will clear up in one to five days.
Constituents: Essential oil, tetronic acid, luteolin, gums, resin, glycosides, furocoumarins, pyronocoumarins, saponins, carbohydrates, fatty acids, and ascorbic acid.
Antiviral – Lomatium’s antiviral properties often make it effective against Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It is best taken as tincture in ½ teaspoon doses three times daily.
Immune Stimulant – A tincture of Lomatium helps the immune system during serious illness and flu. Take ½ teaspoon of tincture in hot water two to three times daily. A compound of the roots Lomatium and Arrowleaf Balsamroot is used as an herbal steam for lung or nasal congestion and asthma.
Wounds – Lomatium Salve is a very special, fragrant ointment for softening the skin, as well as disinfecting cuts and wounds.
