History: Boneset's name comes from its traditional use as a treatment for "breakbone fever," an old term for dengue fever, a mosquito-borne, viral disease that causes muscle pains so intense that people imagine their bones are breaking. The Indians introduced boneset to early colonists as a sweat-inducer, an old treatment for fevers. The Indians used boneset for all fever-producing illnesses: influenza, cholera, dengue, malaria, and typhoid, which accounts for the other names of feverwort and sweat plant. It was also used to relieve arthritis and to treat colds, indigestion, constipation, and loss of appetite. Boneset was listed as a treatment for fever in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia from 1820-1916, and in the National Formulary from 1926-1950.
