Barlow Herbal Starter Kit

1) Start with the bottle of LiverLove. Take 2 capsules twice a day prior to meals for two weeks. Keep going with the LiverLove at that dose until it’s gone. It will last you 30 days. After two weeks of taking LiverLove - start on the MunityBoost at 10-12 drops once a day for a week. Add the drops to a small amount of water before taking. These are very concentrated tinctures! After one week of MunityBoost at 10-12 drops - increase it to twice a day at the same dose. At that point, if you don’t have the rash - the chances of getting it are almost non-existent. You can then increase the dose of the MunityBoost to 20-25 drops (approx. 1/2 dropper full) 2-3 times a day until the bottle is gone. Once the MunityBoost is gone then you are ready to start on the LDM-100.

Suggested Protocol for Essiac-20, East Star and LDM-100

This is not meant to be medical advice. We are not doctors, but this is how we have personally used it over the years for ourselves and our families. Please do your due diligence.

730am - Essiac-20, East Star, and LDM-100 – 25-30 drops each in water

12noon - Essiac-20, East Star, and LDM-100 – 25-30 drops each in water

830pm – Essiac-20, East Star, and LDM-100 – 25-30 drops each in water

This is a suggested schedule. You can modify it any way you need to fit your schedule. It can also be modified for each person's individual needs. It can also be adjusted for each person's individual needs. You don't need to count out each drop every time. If you squeeze up the 2oz dropper about halfway, you will get approximately 25-30 drops. And for the 4oz dropper, squeeze it approximately 1/3 full for about 25 drops.

You can put it in a small amount of water or a full glass of water. And the Essiac-20, East Star, and LDM-100 can be blended in the same water before you take them. If possible, take them away from food, but it is more important to take them even if you have eaten. It is also essential to be patient and consistent while your body absorbs these powerful formulas and has a chance to heal.

The Suma root in our East Star formula can affect hormone production, meaning that it should be avoided by anyone with a known history of diseases involving hormonal dysregulation. Consider adding Pau'd Arco in its place. Please ensure you take all sugars out of your diet while your body is healing. This includes all alcohol and some natural sugars like too much fruit juice and dried fruit. Consider supplementing with enzymes and probiotics and checking for mineral deficiency.

Other herbal tinctures with potent anti-cancer properties are Pau d'Arco, Una de Gato (Cat's Claw), Feverfew, and Prostata-100 (specifically for the prostate). You can safely and effectively add any or all of these tinctures to the above routine. Research each herb and decide which ones would fit your situation.

Lomatium

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 the 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 the 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 have been found to speed up the detox process. The addition of freshly squeezed wheatgrass juice is also extremely helpful. One can discontinue the use of LDM-100 temporarily.

Adults: 3 to 10 drops, 3 to 5 times daily, or more. It is suggested, to begin with, 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.

How to lessen your chance of the one-time Lomatium detox rash.

Through our many years of experience with Lomatium we have found that there are two ways you can acclimate your body to Lomatium and do everything you can to try and prevent the one-time detox rash.

1) First option is the Lomatium Starter Bundle. Start with the MunityBoost, 10-12 drops once a day for a week. After one week of MunityBoost at 10-12 drops - increase it to twice a day at the same dose. After another week at that dose increase to 20-25 drops 2-3 times a day until the entire bottle is gone. At that point, you shouldn’t have to worry about the rash and are ready to start on the LDM-100.

2) Second option is the Ultimate Lomatium Starter Bundle. Start with one bottle of LiverLove. Take 2 capsules twice a day prior to meals for two weeks. Keep going with the LiverLove at that dose until it’s gone. It will last you 30 days. If you have a favorite liver support/detox supplement you currently use, you can start with that instead. After two weeks of taking LiverLove - start on the MunityBoost at 10-12 drops once a day for a week. Add the drops to a small amount of water before taking. These are very concentrated tinctures! After one week of MunityBoost at 10-12 drops - increase it to twice a day at the same dose. At that point, if you don’t have the rash - the chances of getting it are almost non-existent. You can then increase the dose of the MunityBoost to 20-25 drops (approx. 1/2 dropper full) 2-3 times a day until the bottle is gone. Once the MunityBoost is gone then you are ready to start on the LDM-100.

Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

A great place to start is our Starter Kit. It’s on our website and it comes with a lot of products and complete instructions on how to start using it. It’s a substantial discount when bundled together in this kit. You save a lot of money and it’s not overwhelming. If you just want to start with one or two things, then I would suggest the MunityBoost followed by the LDM-100. There is a reason these are our most popular products.

It depends on what you’re taking it for, and how long it takes your body to respond. Remember that everyone is a little bit different and we need to use patience and consistency. It also depends on the product and what issue you are dealing with. For example, if you are working on supporting your body through EBV then you will need anywhere from 6-18 months every day.

Unless otherwise suggested by your practitioner, follow the directions on the bottle. If you are sensitive, then cut the dose in half or in thirds. With the liquid tinctures you can even start as low as one drop a day. Read and learn as much as you can and then follow your common sense and intuition.

We’ve been making LDM-100 since 1975 and from the feedback from thousands of practitioners, I’ve come to believe that no, Lomatium (LDM-100) does not destroy any beneficial bacteria. If you’ve been on prescription antibiotics or you are a modern, stressed human being - it is a good idea to supplement with a high quality probiotic on a daily basis.

Yes. We don’t have any formulas that contradict with any other formula. We always suggest adding our tinctures to a little water to make them palatable so just increase the amount of water and make a little cocktail of your daily tinctures. You can also dissipate the alcohol out of our tinctures. See number 9.
