Medicinal uses(Warning!)

Parsley piert has a long history of folk use, being commonly employed to rid the body of stones in the kidney or bladder. It has become a highly respected herb in modern herbalism for the treatment of kidney stones[6]. The whole herb is astringent, demulcent, diuretic and refrigerant[1][7][8]. It is used mainly as an infusion in the treatment of kidney and bladder complaints (including cystitis and recurrent urinary infections), jaundice etc[1][5]. A very valuable remedy, acting violently but safely by promoting the flow of urine[1], it is often used in combination with other herbs[5][9]. The plant is harvested in early summer and can be used fresh or dried[5]. The herb is considered to be most efficacious when it is freshly collected and dried[5].
