Yerba Mansa has many healing properties and has been used to treat coughs, sore throats, intestinal issues, inflammation of the joints, skin issues, cancer and other ailments. A neighbor of mine shared that this plant helped his daughter heal from Lymphoma. After learning about the healing properties from one of his good friends, (who also used it to treat his cancer) he decided to share the information with his oldest daughter who had successful results.
The root of the plant was used as a medicine by many tribes in California, Great Basin, and the Southwest including the Wukchumni Yokuts, Kawaiisu, Paiute, Shoshone, and Pima. Some Native Americans still gather the plant today.
