Clean Your Arteries Naturally – For Pennies A Day

Clean arteries are smooth and flexible. They allow blood to flow freely, letting nutrients and oxygen to reach tissues easily.

Arteries that are clogged with cholesterol and fats, though, become hard. The lining of the arteries becomes uneven. Sticky deposits impede blood flow. All of the tissues begin to suffer. Circulation to the legs may be impaired. Leg pain may occur. Blood pressure rises. Sores on legs won’t heal. Thinking may be impaired. If a part of the lining of the blood vessel or a clot breaks off, it may lodge in the heart, causing a heart attack; or it may lodge in the brain, causing a stroke; or lodge in the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism. If the arteries to the kidneys are impaired, hypertension and kidney failure may result. Injured arteries in the liver may result in liver failure.

Keeping the arteries clean is essential for the health and well-being of your entire body. Let’s look at some ways to keep your arteries open, and let’s develop a strategy for unclogging arteries that are already stressed.

How Does Conventional Medicine Treat Unhealthy Arteries?

Conventional medical practitioners focus on prevention as well as symptom management. Health care practitioners recommend a diet low in “bad” cholesterol, trans fats and saturated fats. There is nothing wrong with that advice. It is healthy. Unfortunately, specific interventions are often not recommended until the arteries are already impaired. This is evidenced by elevated blood pressure readings, high levels of LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, or blood glucose. A person initially may not have any outward symptoms of the damage occurring for many years.

A crisis may occur that requires stent placement or angiography. Emergency measures are needed.

Medications may be prescribed which lower blood pressure, lower levels of unhealthy cholesterol, or thin the blood. Unfortunately, all of these medications have serious side effects. A better option is to prevent the buildup of plaque and maintain flexibility within the blood vessels before a problem occurs – and it can be done for mere pennies a day.

What Choices Do I Have?

Having clean arteries requires a combination of factors and actions. Some people have a predisposition toward high cholesterol levels, so prevention and treatment by “natural methods” is challenging. As we get older, our arteries become less flexible. If you have diabetes, you have an elevated likelihood of having vascular problems. Even with these challenges, there is still much that can be done to keep your arteries clean. Let’s take a look at what you can do, today:

1. Get regular aerobic exercise. Check with your health care provider first before implementing an exercise program or if you are taking prescription medications. This aids flexibility of your body, including your blood vessels. It prevents stagnation of the tissues and helps you to obtain or maintain a healthy weight.

2. Eat healthy fat foods such as olive, canola and coconut oil. Do not reuse oil for cooking. Avocadoes are a great source of healthy fat. Eat only lean meats if you eat meat. Meat from grass-fed or from wild animals is best. Or, eat a primarily plant-based diet rich in whole grains. Eat a wide array of colorful fruits and vegetables. Avoid processed foods.

3. Include lots of fiber in your diet. There are two main types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. An inexpensive source of healthy soluble fiber is oat bran. Three grams of oat bran, the amount in a normal breakfast serving, consumed regularly may reduce cholesterol levels by 10-25 percent. Insoluble fiber, in the form of ground flax seeds, aids the digestive tract and liver in its ability to rid the body of excess cholesterol. Consume a minimum of 35 grams of fiber each day.

4. If you smoke, stop. Smoking causes narrowing and hardening of the blood vessels.

5. If you are overweight, take off some pounds. Even a 10 percent drop in weight can reduce your risk of cardiovascular illness dramatically. This can reduce your blood glucose levels, as well.

6. Learn to manage stress. Get sleep. Say “no” to others if they place too many demands on you. Stress causes reduces flexibility of blood vessels and releases compounds into your bloodstream which have negative effects.

7. Eat a handful of nuts each day. They reduce food cravings and contain healthy compounds which protect your blood vessels. Compounds in nuts improve blood flow and reduce blood pressure. They prevent the formation of clots. Walnuts and sesame seeds are exceptionally healthy.

8. Have a glass of red wine. Red wine reduces oxidative stress, which ages us. It reduces the proportion of unhealthy cholesterol in the body. Red wine reduces inflammation, one of the major factors which causes blood vessels to “clog.”

9. Try niacin. Niacin opens up blood vessels, lowers cholesterol, triglycerides and clot-producing factors in the blood.

10. Consider supplementation with policosanol. Policosanol lowers LDL cholesterol levels, improves the smoothness of arterial linings, and prevents blood clots. Other supplements to consider include a good quality multivitamin/ mineral, grape seed or pine bark extract, and fish, krill or flaxseed oil.

  1. Tumeric and Garlic also lower cholesterol. Garlic should be eaten raw, which is easiest to do if you put it on food that is compatible with the flavor. For medicinal use, you need at least 3 cloves a day.
    Tumeric should be slightly cooked, and used with a little black pepper to make it more bioavailable. Golden milk is an easy way to get the needed 2 Tbsp. that you need for cholesterol lowering. That is best made by using the recipe below:
    2Tbsp. Coconut Oil, 2Tbsp. Tumeric powder, 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper, 3 Cups coconut milk and honey to taste.
    To prepare, put coconut oil, tumeric and black pepper in a saucepan over low heat and simmer together for 3 or 4 minutes stirring constantly. Stir in coconut milk and continue to cook until hot but not boiling. Add raw local honey to taste and enjoy a cup. You should drink 3 cups a day.
    With these two things, I lowered my cholesterol from the mid 300s to 110 in less than two months.

  2. Actually, only tips #1 & #4 are solidly supported by the research evidence. The others are only wishful thinking or outright wrong. The best advice is to chose your parents wisely. It’s mostly genetic.

  3. My husband had his first heart attack at 41 years old. Despite what you think, he was physically healthy, a year-round active participant high school coach, no smoking, no drinking, no drugs. Had a second one at 49 that resulted in triple by-pass surgery. Then at 51 he had to have an ICD implanted along with heart ablation. I researched and researched everything, discarded a lot. I ended up with the following: Vit C, Vit E/d-alpha, folic acid, B complex, fish oil. My husband’s cardiologist admits to taking the last three himself. The latest that I started giving my husband was pomegranate capsules along with blueberry/pomegranate juice. The most expensive of all of the above is the pomegranate, but I won’t stop using it because I have read a LOT of research that indicates it actually cleans out the arteries and makes them supple again. Do these things work? My husband is 63 now and the doctor at his last stress test told him to keep doing whatever he is doing because the results showed extremely little buildup since the ICD was implanted….you do the math. He still has episodes of V-tac that the ICD corrects but that has to do with the electrical system in the heart rather than blockages. So, I will keep making him take the pills and the juice because, at least for him, it is working. Thought I would share.

    • I’ve read research on how it’s magnesium deficiency that causes artery clogging that brings on heart attacks- Dr. Wallach said so and many others. Most people are Magnesium deficient- some more than others. Hope this helps 🙂 and the above oils this article says to have are correct EXCEPT Canola oil- That’s preposterous! It’s toxic and one of THE most damaging oils possible for the body. Steer clear of that one but coconut oil is one of the best oils all round.

  4. This information is badly out of date. They now know cholesterol is saving your life by repairing artery damage. The real culprit is oils that cause trans fats which cause oxidation damage to the arteries. Eat saturated fat to save your life. The Inuit [Eskimos] have cholesterol of 350 to 500 and have the lowest in heart problems.

  5. Absolutely stay away from canola oil. All canola oil is genetically modified rapeseed oil. In it’s unmodified state it is not just inedible, it is toxic. There is no naturally occurring plant in existence called a canola plant. Canola is actually Canadian Oil Low Acid, and their lobbyists have spent millions to promote it in a positive and healthy light. It is far from being healthy. Replace all canola oil with unrefined coconut oil or red palm oils. Olive oil is best for salads or low temp sautéing. High cholesterol readings mean nothing, the ratio of HDL to LDL is a far more important factor to consider as an indication to potential problems.

    • RAY IS RIGHT!
      ABSOLUTELY TRUE! Avoid Canola at all costs! Rapeseed oil is used as industrial lubricant. HORRORS!

      Yes, Olive is not good for heating, it becomes carcinogenic! DON’T cook with it, however I do use “Extra light” olive oil for cooking along with butter for flavor. For heating use grapeseed oil as it has a very high smoke point, and contains many anti-inflammatory compounds. Sadly, I only use coconut oil for baking, or rubbing into my skin, because it smells (surprise surprise) like coconut! Not great when cooking meat, unless you are making coconut shrimp or chicken, then it is a nice aromatic along with the meat.

      Go for the least processed oils you can get. Cold pressed, simply filtered is the way to go. A wonderful salad oil is safflower oil, I find it in my grocery store enhanced with vitamin E, and you can eat it or use on skin. Nice stuff, odorless and tasteless, rubs in with very little residue. Keep delicate oils in the fridge if you don’t use them up quickly.

    • I guess I should not buy any more Earth Balance Vegan Butter since it has Canola Oil in it.
