Anybody ever use the stuff?

I've dug some out of my no man's land little piece of land before and tried to sell on ebay before after drying it, but no takers. There are people who do buy the stuff, but I think they dig it when its younger and then sliced up the roots with a carrot peeler before it dries, mine end up drying as little cross-cut stick wedges-- hard stuff when its dried. I just got finished mowing my perimeter and I see a bunch of it growing down there.

Never heard of it, what's it for?


Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

"Many different kinds of “Dock” exist and though some have similar properties, identification of the proper material is important. This particular plant has narrow leaves (Rumex translated from the Latin means Lanced) , which are usually curly (crispus) at the edges, vary in size and are not found in great numbers higher up the stem of the plant. The flowers become a green seed that turns a deep red color in the fall, traditionally marking the proper harvest time for the root. The plant is native to Europe and Western Asia but has naturalized itself widely in North America where it grows almost anywhere it can. Native American use of this plant was extensive. The Dakota used the bruised fresh green leaves as a poultice for infected wounds. The Blackfoot, Cheyenne and Dakota tribes used the fresh root pulp topically for rheumatic pains. The Iroquois also applied this mash to piles, and as a poultice in yellow fever. The Cherokee, as well as the tribes mentioned above, used the root internally for constipation, and to inspire the body to cleanse the blood. The Navajo used the whole plant as an emetic before ceremony to clear and cleanse the system in order to prepare the body for healing and spiritual ritual."

'Yellow Dock, Rumex crispus

Yellow dock root is cooling, sour, drying, cleansing, a laxative, and bitter. Yellow dock is indicated for cases of overactive digestion, excessive appetite, excessive hydrochloric acid with reflux and burning, and an overabundance of saliva.

Yellow dock is considered to be one of the best herbs for the entire digestive system. The taproot is rich in anthraquinone, which has a laxative action. It contains biochelated iron, which can be readily absorbed. It is helpful for anemia, fatigue, and for folks with PMS or other hormonal imbalances.

For more information on yellow dock check out this blog post from The Herbal Academy.'

Interesting point Foxpaw!! They do say its a laxative, hahahaha! But for people who only take a deuce once a week, maybe a little yellow dock root tea in between that schedule would be good grin
