    GROUND PINE Overview Information

    Ground pine is a plant. The parts that grow above the ground are used to make medicine.

    People take ground pine for gout, muscle and joint pain (rheumatism), fluid retention (edema), a disease that involves generalized hardening of tissue (sclerosis), and malaria. Women take it to start their menstrual periods and to treat other “female complaints.” Ground pine is sometimes used as a tonic and to cause sweating.

    Some people apply ground pine directly to the skin for wound healing.
