MedHead Message:

Venous stasis insufficiency costs a lot to manage. Wouldn’t it be nice to make sure that everyone receiving treatment could take something as simple as Horse chestnut and citrus bioflavonoids everyday along with their other treatment? I’d bet this cost would decrease dramatically, then we could all save money together as a whole country. Cool! Hey government healthcare directors! Are you reading this?
