A reader once asked, “How can I unclog my arteries or clean my arteries without surgery?” And, “What are some good heart foods?”
First of all, STOP doing the things that caused atherosclerosis in the first place. Your arteries didn’t become clogged by itself. Let’s hope you already know this…
They became clogged through a series of choices.
This concerns the foods you’ve ate all over the years and how much you exercise. Before we get into the strategies and therapies that can reverse and hopefully heal atherosclerosis and unclog arteries, let’s stop the clogging first.
We’ll continue this conversation after the recipe…
Ancient German Remedy
- 4 organic lemons
- 2 tablespoons organic ginger root powder
- 4 organic garlic cloves
- 2 liters purified water
First, wash the lemons and cut them in slices, preserving the rind. Then, peel the garlic and put it in a blender along with the lemons and ginger. Mix everything well until you get a consistent mixture.
When the mixture is homogenous, put it in a pan and add the water inside. Leave it on the stove until it starts to boil, stirring it continuously. After a while, withdraw it from the stove and let it cool down.
When the mix is cooled, strain the liquid and store it in a bottle or a glass jar.
How to Use:
Take one glass of this mixture on an empty stomach for two hours before every principal meal for three weeks. Then, take a break for one week and continue again for three more weeks. If you don’t like the flavor, you can always add a little bit of raw honey to sweeten it.
The results will appear very soon, even in the first three weeks of use. You will feel more energy and your general health will be improved.
Clogged Arteries Myth
There is a huge myth out there about what causes clogged arteries and heart disease. And the myth is a carryover from the 1980s when the big dietary enemy was fat. The entire nation, it seemed, was fleeing from fat, and at the same time running toward foods made with ridiculously large amounts of sugar.
Fat was a big disease causer, doctors told us, and everybody was told to go on an extremely low-fat diet. Even the American Heart Association recommended that people at risk of heart disease or those who had already suffered a heart attack avoid practically all fat in their diet.
Some people were told to go on 10 grams of fat a day or even less.
And here’s the big mistake of it: all fats were lumped into the same group. So whether it was fat from fish oils or fat from beef lard, it was all considered to be the same fat, and it was all considered to be the enemy of human health.
Of course today we know that the hysteria surrounding fat was just that — nothing but poorly justified fear resulting from major mistakes by medical researchers, combined with a huge marketing push on the part of food producers who discovered that selling people sugar was a lot easier, and a lot more profitable, than selling fat.
So what does all of this have to do with stopping the clogging of your arteries? It’s simple, actually. There are healthy, good fats that you must get into your diet if you wish to unclog your arteries. And today it is well known that those fats include omega-3 fatty acids, fish oils, and monounsaturated fats.
Basically, the kind of fats you find in oily fish, nuts, seeds, and fruits like avocados (which is, yes, technically a fruit, not a vegetable).
