Dandelion root is a "blood purifier" that helps both the kidneys and the liver to improve
elimination. It helps clear up many eczema-like skin problems because of this. The root
has also been successfully used to treat liver diseases such as jaundice and cirrhosis along with dyspepsia and gallbladder problems.
