Yellow Dock is a tonic that has been used to cleanse the system of toxic wastes and help to relieve virtually all disorders associated with impurities in the blood. It promotes clear, healthy skin and alleviates eczema, pimples, psoriasis and acne. While cleansing the liver, it has helped to treat jaundice, hepatitis and other liver disorders. Its laxative effects promote good colon health, easing constipation, clearing bodily wastes and improving skin eruptions caused by constipation. Moreover, its rich iron content helps to enrich blood quality and relieve anemia.
Country of Origin: United States
Yellow Dock Root has been known for centuries as an outstanding blood purifier. Its herbal 'alterative' properties help the cleansing process by stimulating the efficient removal of waste products from the system and gradually converting an unhealthy condition to a healthy one.
The herb is also believed to cleanse the liver. Yellow Dock helps to stimulate bile flow in the liver, improving liver and gallbladder function, while cleansing impurities from the blood. This application has made it a valuable treatment for hepatitis, bilious complaints, jaundice and liver disease.
Yellow Dock Root is rich in organic iron and is actually one of the most iron-dense plants in nature. The roots have an unusual ability to absorb whatever iron is present in the soil; and, as such, it has been used to enrich the quality of the blood. This action has made it useful for treating anemia.
As an astringent, Yellow Dock has been used internally to treat bleeding of the lungs, dysentery and hemorrhoids. The tannin content is responsible for the astringent effect of Yellow Dock, making it effective in relieving various skin conditions when used externally.
Yellow Dock Root contains oxalates and, therefore, should not be used in excess, especially for those with a tendency to rheumatism, arthritis, gout, kidney stones and hyperacidity. Excess use (many times the recommended dosage) may cause dermatitis and nausea, and using too much Yellow Dock or using Yellow Dock for too long may cause difficulty in having a bowel movement without the use of some laxative or promote low potassium in the body. Speak with your doctor before using Yellow Dock if you have an intestinal or bowel blockage or have had kidney stones.
