Medicinally, it is one of the best detoxicants known in western herbal medicine for the circulatory, lymphatic and respiratory systems. The plant increases bodily resistance to infection and acts as a blood purifier. It was used by the Native American Indians to treat all types of insect and snake bites and stings, wounds and burns as well as for toothaches, throat infections, coughs and stomach cramps. Roots of established plants can be dug up in autumn, washed and chopped, and made into a tincture.
