Yellow Dock Root is an alterative herb, or blood purifier, that can be used to stimulate bile and digestion and aids a variety of skin and liver conditions. According to Michael Moore, the esteemed herbalist from the Southwest, it supports the normal liberation of iron stored in the liver, making it useful for supporting iron deficiencies and the plant is helpful in supporting normal healthy liver and gall bladder function. The juice from the leaves can be used to pull rust and mildew stains off linen, silver, and wicker. (2)
