Therapy—This agent closely resembles yellow dock in its action as an alterative; it has a direct influence upon the blood, and thence. upon diseases of the skin and mucous membranes. Its influence upon the mucous membranes of the stomach encourages normal glandular secretion and promotes digestion. In aphthous ulcerations of these membranes and in catarrhal ulcerations, it is excellent.
It influences the mucous membranes of the air passages when irritated from any blood disorder, alleviating irritable coughs. It cures psoriasis and chronic cutaneous eruptions. It has a marked influence upon chronic glandular enlargements, and is beneficial in syphilitic, scrofulous and gouty conditions. It relieves irritation of the urinary apparatus, promoting a free flow of the urine containing urea, uric acid, and a full quantity of excrete solids.
This plant is a European introduction, probably not earlier than the time of the first overland traffic by horses, mules, and oxen. It is even now found commonly only along or near the old military roads. It has been adopted by the Indians for medicinal use. White Horse, of the Omaha, gave information, which he had obtained from the Oto, of a decoction of the root being used as a remedy for pleurisy.
