The plant is edible. The leaves are used for green drink and other eating. Yellow dock comes from a group of related docks and sorrels and is distinguished from related species by its yellow carrot-shaped root. The root possesses astringent qualities united with a cathartic principle and has been used as a substitute for rhubarb. It was used in medieval times to cure boils and as a poultice to remedy burns, scalds, blisters, syphylitic lesions. It was also used to take the itch out of cutaneous eruptions like psoriasis and the rashes caused by stinging nettle. Yellow dock has accumulated through the Doctrine of Signatures and from folk tradition the reputation of being a liver tonic, gall bladder tonic, and the best organic source of iron available. One nutritional therapist recently claimed the yellow dock is 50 percent iron by weight. Normally, when yellow dock is blended with other cleansing herbs like burdock and dandelion, the herb is useful in healing a wide range of ailments by significantly reducing the toxic contents in the body.
