Traditionally the conifers have been used by traditional healers as immune and hormone support particularly for balancing male complaints.

Herbalists have given steam baths with these trees for their effect on the respiratory system to benefit cough, colds, flu, asthma, bronchitis, allergies and to break up mucous promoting lymphatic drainage.
Herbalists have appreciated the anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of the conifers to soothe overworked or tired muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints.
The conifers have also been utilized by native healers to work as a urinary antiseptic to treat urinary infections and remove deposits from the kidneys, bladder and lymphatic system.
