October 10, 2013 Category :Diabetes Research 0

Chelation Therapy is a safe, effective and relatively inexpensive treatment for the restoration of blood flow for the elimination of toxins and heavy metals (e.g. lead, mercury cadmium and iron) from the body. These toxins are often related to hypertension.
