Unfortunately, no tests have been conducted to prove the effectiveness of Lomatium Root with women that are pregnant or breast feeding, so such women should avoid consuming Lomatium Root unless instructed to do so by their herbalist or naturopathic doctor. Otherwise the usage of fresh Lomatium Root has been quite beneficial and no specific side effects have been noticed. Overdosing on Lomatium Root can lead to skin rash, nausea and vomiting in some cases.
