Could Chelation Help Rid Your Body of Toxins?

Toxins can be a number of things - but especially chemicals. These chemicals come from your mattress, your blankets, your floors, the foods that you eat and the things you drink.
When you get toxins in your body, it works to try to remove the toxins as a way of protecting itself. Your body tried to get the toxins out by secreting them through your kidneys.
