Physical Uses: The common name for this herb comes from the tale of a New England Indian named Joe Pye (or Jo-Pi) who used the herb to cure a settler of typhus.

Induces sweating and acts as a diuretic.

While some Native Americans use it as an astringent, a tonic and a stimulant, others believe it to be an aphrodisiac.

Small doses of the dried root were brewed in a tea or a tincture to reduce the symptoms of rheumatism and gout.

Also used to treat certain kidney and bladder problems (this explains the name Gravelroot).
