Yellow dock has a long history of use for stimulating liver function, for cleansing the blood and for helping with chronic skin problems that were traditionally associated with ‘bad blood’. These were things such as boils, acne, dry scaly eczema and psoriasis. Native Americans used Yellow dock as a blood purifier and as an antidote for poisons. The leaves were applied to boils to bring out the infection and the crushed roots were put on cuts to cleanse and stimulate healing. Yellow dock is also a hormone regulant and some of it’s primary uses include treating anemia, eczema and psoriasas, and as part of a combination to dissolve cancerous growths and tumors. It has been used to treat diarrhea, fever, itch, rhumitism, and promote the production of bile
