Re: Andy, Moria--question about taking breaks
- If you aren't getting much benefit from chelation it is time to take
a break and see if he gets it then.
It isn't that easy to tell if he needs a break other than by trying
it - you don't want to lose time, but chelation is hard on the body.
On 3/11 I'd think only the most toxic people would need breaks.
