Clogged Arteries? Start Taking This!

Clogged arteries are a common life-threatening condition that impacts nearly 40% of adults. If you are someone who deals with clogged arteries, then you know how difficult it can be to treat and diagnose. You can use natural remedies to fight arterial plaque, such as the tincture I’ll show you in this article.

What Are Clogged Arteries?

Arterial plaque build-up inside blood vessels causes clogged or blocked arteries. Blood vessels carry blood throughout the body, and when plaque builds up and clogs these blood vessels, the results can be deadly.

When fat, calcium, cholesterol, and other substances get lodged into the wall of an artery, the body sends white blood cells and muscle cells to trap whatever gets embedded in the arterial wall. The combination of different substances, such as white blood cells, cholesterol, and muscle cells, causes a hard plaque to get embedded into the arterial wall.

Hard plaque in blood vessels clogs the arteries and reduces blood flow. Eventually, the blood moving through blood vessels can cause plaque to separate from the artery’s wall. A blood clot is a piece of plaque that has separated from the arterial wall and moves freely through the circulatory system.

Blood clots reduce blood flow through an artery. If an artery leading to your brain has a large enough blood clot, you could have a stroke. If an artery leading to your heart has a clot, you could have a heart attack.

Symptoms of Clogged Arteries

It’s difficult to tell if you have blocked arteries without going to the doctor and getting checked for plaque build-up. A CT coronary angiogram is the only way to see if you have blockages in the arteries.

One way you can tell if you most likely have plaque in your arteries is if you are at high risk for getting plaque build-up. If you have diabetes, high blood pressure, chronic stress, poor sleeping habits, or are older than 35, then you are at a higher risk of clogged arteries. If you smoke, eat a high-cholesterol or unhealthy diet, or are obese, you may also want to talk to your physician about the symptoms of clogged arteries.

Symptoms of clogged arteries near the heart are chest pain, tightness, pressure, discomfort, and shortness of breath. Pain, numbness, weakness, or coldness in the legs or arms may indicate reduced blood flow. Dizziness, confusion, headaches, trouble seeing, and trouble walking can indicate a blocked artery near the brain.

Natural Remedies for Clogged Arteries

Once plaque builds up in your arteries, removing it is impossible without a medical procedure. However, you can avoid further plaque build-up and dissolve it once it begins to break off into your bloodstream with natural remedies and healthy lifestyle choices.

What to Eat: While nothing can reverse plaque build-up once it forms, eating healthier can stop you from getting more plaque. Cholesterol and unhealthy fats cause arterial plaque, so cutting these out of your diet is crucial for reducing clogged arteries.

Eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, and fatty fish will also help you avoid clogged arteries. A healthy diet promotes healthy blood vessels and optimal circulation. You can also help your body dissolve blood clots by eating foods high in Vitamin E. Vitamin E has anticoagulant properties, making the blood thinner and reducing the size of blood clots. Almonds, avocado, and spinach are all foods high in Vitamin E.

Green Tea: Drinking green tea helps protect your body from getting clogged arteries. Compounds in green tea protect vascular function by lowering blood pressure and reducing fats in the blood. The antioxidants in green tea also prevent plaque build-up in arteries.

This berry also contains compounds that promote plaque stability by lowering the amount of lipids in the blood.

I found two quart jars full of hawthorn berries/vodka that I prepared about four years ago, and have been sealed, stored in a cool dark basement. Do I dare open it and consume it? The hawthorn berries were pure fresh organic from the trees in my yard.
Your opening comments describe exactly what took my wife’s life; a large clot broke loose and jammed the artery to her heart, resulting in a sudden heart attack, and instant death.

I think I would be making a fresh batch – just in case

It is a tincture. The alcohol is a preservative. If it was made and stored properly I would be happy to use it. You could muscle test or douse if you, or someone you know does this.

What other berries, like hawthorn, can I supplement with. I live in the bush of nz and have access to many berries eg miro berries

Can I use whole dried Hawthorne berries in this recipe? Or only the freeze dried ones shown in the recipe picture?

Yes, of course you can. You might need to adjust the quantities – use less of the dried berries than the fresh.
I’ve been making hawthorn tincture (& other tinctures) & taking it for the past couple of years. I just cover the dried herbs or berries with alcohol, plus about an inch above.

What fruit is an alternative to Hawthorne berries? We do not have them in Australia.

Is this book the same as the forgotten herbs, which I bought from you ?

Do hawthorn leaves as well as the berries make a good tea to clean the blood too.

I have made wine from hawthorn berries, I didn’t crush the seeds, it makes the wine bitter. Do you crush the seeds for the tincture? Where does the goodness come from the flesh or the seeds?

Hawthorn berry seeds contain cyanide, similar to apples. I would recommend limiting the amount or discarding them all together.

Do you have a tincture already done for clogged arteries?

I was wondering too if one could buy a tincture? I have tablets 300mg, would it be same dose as liquid? Thanks

White size spoonful? Tablespoon, Teaspoon? Milliliters?

While I believe this is a good article. Papaya (especially inner skin and seeds) will clean plaque in arteries.
It takes time, it’s not an over night cure.

What cultivar of hawthorn do you need to use? Or can you use any hawthorn? I may have some black hawthorn in our area of Alberta perhaps. Is it as useful?
