Research and Analysis 
Medicinal Usage

Yellow dock is used for pain and swelling (inflammation) of nasal passages and the respiratory tract, and as a laxative and tonic. It is also used to treat bacterial infections and sexually transmitted diseases.
Some people use yellow dock as a toothpaste.
Historically, yellow dock has been used for skin diseases, skin inflammation (dermatitis), rashes, a vitamin deficiency called scurvy, obstructive jaundice, and psoriasis with constipation.

 Culinary Usage

The young leaves of dock, although somewhat bitter, were cooked as a vegetable. Culpeper said that "all docks being boiled with meat, make it boil the sooner", adding that they were "as wholesome a pot herb as any growing in a garden."

Miscellaneous
The plant was listed by Aelfric. In country districts, the leaves were used to wrap butter, hence the name 'butter-dock'. The roots of broad-leaved dock yield a greenish-yellow dye.
