During the flu pandemic of 1917-1918, a special root was used by the Washoe Indian tribes near Carson City, Nevada. Dr. E.T. Krebs Sr., a contracted physician assigned by the U.S. government, was surprised to find these Native American tribes free from respiratory illness and no deaths attributed from the “influenza bug.” This was especially unbelievable because people were “dying like flies” throughout the entire region, the nation and the world. Seeing the dried root hanging, Dr. Krebs was told it was “powerful medicine” and took the dried root to San Francisco and the “people just stopped dying.” Those Native Americans called the medicinal root “Dortza”, which meant “powerful medicine.” They collected it during the year when the richest supply of oils were concentrated in the large underground roots. Chopped and hung them to dry in their huts. LDM (Lomatium Dissectum v. Multifida) Extract is used both as a preventative against viral infections or solely during high-risk periods. It inhibits growth and reproduction of viral organisms, rendering them inactive, thus enabling white blood cells to do their job by dumping them to be filtered out of the body. Volatile oil factions in the root contain the antiviral/antibiotic properties along with powerful anti-bacterial/anti-fungal properties. LDM extract 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. LDM is anti-viral and the dosage depends upon the strength or weakness of the body’s natural immune system. LDM is completely natural and non-toxic; therefore, the dosage may be safely increased until it takes effect. Adults: 3 to 10 drops, 3 to 5 times daily. Start with a low dosage, increase with tolerance. Keep dosage low for first 7 days, then increase as needed. Children: 3 to 4 drops, 4 to 6 times daily gradually increasing quantity and frequency. 1 to 2 drops for babies added to water or juice. NOTICE: 1 in 200 people get a one time harmless detox rash. This is due to the body dumping high amounts of toxins and its inability to filter it through. Stop LDM until rash has cleared and then begin again. Always begin LDM in small doses.
