Americans use the plants in a variety of ways. The most prominent medicinal treatment is for kidney problems. In Mexico, Cuba, Hispaniola, and the Turks and Caicos Islands the plants are considered diuretic. In Mexico the roots are used, in Cuba the leaves, and in the Turks and Caicos the seeds. Each area has its own variant of medicinal preparations, including decoctions of roots and leaves. Others use the seeds, which are parched, ground like coffee, and boiled. The preparation in each area, however, is prescribed for swelling of the legs and feet associated with kidney trouble. This same decoction is used to treat rheumatism and arthritis in Argentina. The same or similar preparations are given in Mexico as sudorifics, emetics, purgatives, diaphoretics, and rubifacients in rheum. Cubans also use it as a sudorific (Roig 1945).

People in Hispaniola also use the leaves and stems in emollient poultices for abscesses and sores.
