Here are some of the most important health benefits of Yellow Dock:

–  Yellow dock is an herb famous for its “cleansing” properties. It is a laxative not so well known, since it is mainly recommended for mild constipation. Its laxative and cleansing properties are due to anthraquinones.

–  This herb also has diuretic properties, which makes it a natural remedy for water retention, inflammation of the bladder and urinary stones.

–  When prepared as a poultice, yellow dock has a calming effect and is used as a natural remedy for boils and burns as well as skin problems such as weeping eczema, psoriasis, nettle rash, boils, and abscesses.

–  It has even been used as an herbal remedy in the treatment of syphilis and other venereal diseases with skin outbreaks as it alleviates itching and inflammation.

–  Yellow dock has been used extensively to resolve issues associated with menstruation. It is a traditional remedy for menstrual pain and heavy bleeding and has also been known to be helpful for unbalanced menstrual cycles.

Drink 1-3 cups of tea a day. Add if you want one spoonful of honey at a time and dissolve over very low heat until you reach the desired sweetness.
Although yellow dock is generally considered safe to use medicinally, consuming more than the recommended dosage may cause vomiting and lead to peristalsis and acute intestinal pain and if eat in excess. Yellow dock should not be taken in conjunction with medication for controlling calcium in the blood as excess use can lead to calcium deficiency in the blood.
