Something that many of us don’t fully comprehend is that food can either promote thriving health or chronic disease.

Our lifestyle, although not the entire cause one way or the other, is something we can completely control.

Here’s some sobering news, 1/4 of all deaths in America are caused by atherosclerosis. This disease kills more than any other disease, including cancer.

Atherosclerosis is particularly dangerous because it’s hard to detect and it does its thing slowly. So basically it stays under the radar until it’s too late.

In some cases, it develops more quickly and starts in their 30s. However, it typically doesn’t progress that fast or become dangerous until we hit our 50s or 60s.

As odd as this may sound, the exact cause of this disease remains unknown. That being said, there are habits and lifestyle choices that are highly correlated with atherosclerosis.

The main risk factors for atherosclerosis are smoking, obesity, alcohol abuse and physical inactivity. The treatment is actually aimed at prevention of the disease, and involves radical lifestyle and diet changes. You have to give up your drinking and smoking, and start eating a healthy diet based on fresh fruits and vegetables.

According to Harvard and the Mayo Clinic, in order to prevent atherosclerosis, you certainly need to add lentils, beans, fiber-rich vegetables and oatmeal in your diet.

Foods rich in fiber will do your digestion and cardiovascular health good, as the nutrient acts as a mop in your body, cleaning any excess cholesterol particle there is. By adding all these foods in your diet, you’ll be able to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, heart disease and heart attack as well.

Here’s a natural and powerful remedy that will clean your arteries completely:


A small piece of ginger

1 lemon

1 garlic clove

Coconut water

1 teaspoon honey


Wash, peel and chop the ingredient first, then mix them together in a bowl with 16 oz. coconut water. This is enough for a single serving of the remedy – you should always prepare a fresh batch.

Drink the mixture in the morning before breakfast every day, and you will drastically reduce the chances of any cardiovascular problem, especially atherosclerosis.
