Description: Yellow dock is an herbaceous perennial herb native to Europe and Africa and most temperate regions of the world, which grows to a height of up to 1 metre. The stems are stout and ridges, leaves are 15-20cm in length, alternate, oblong-lanceolate, mid-green in colour with crinkled curly edges; the leaf stalks are approximately 5cm in length. The inflorescences are comprised of terminal panicles of small greenish white petal-less flowers often with a reddish tinge around the edges that grow in whorls around the upper part of the stem. The root is a thick taproot, brown on the outside and yellow on the inside.

Brief History: Yellow dock was a favoured herb during the middle ages to treat kidney problems and for use as a blood purifier and cleanser, Culpeper in the 17th century wrote that ‘the yellow dock root is best to be taken when either the blood or liver is affected by choler’. Choler was an old term to describe one of the four humors of the Hippocratic system popular in the medieval period which looked at blood, phlegm, yellow bile and black bile in the body and how problems with any of those could cause disease and illness. Choler was thought to be caused by having anger and bad temper in excess. Native American Indians used yellow dock root.
