1. Natural home remedies
Eating a few cloves of garlic each day has been known to help clear arteries. It seems to cleanse the system, and collect and cast out toxic waste. Mince two cloves and put them in a half glass of orange juice or water and drink it down. There's no need to chew the pieces of garlic. By just swallowing them, the garlic smell doesn't stay on your breath. In conjunction with a sensible diet, garlic can also help bring down cholesterol levels in the blood. No wonder this beautiful bulb has a fan club, appropriately called "Lovers of the Stinking Rose."

Rutin is one of the elements of the bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids (substances from plants that help maintain cellular health) are necessary for the proper absorption of vitamin C. Taking 500 mg of rutin daily, with at least the same amount of vitamin C, is said to increase the strength of capillaries, strengthen the artery walls, help prevent hemorrhaging and help treat atherosclerosis.

According to French folklore, eating rye bread made with baker's yeast supposedly prevents clogging of the arteries. It is reported that some Russians eat mature, raw potatoes at every meal to prevent atherosclerosis. Drinking a combination of apple cider boiled with garlic once a day is a Slavic folk remedy. This may not prevent atherosclerosis, but it certainly tastes like it should. Eat 1 Papaya on an empty stomach daily for a month. Do not eat anything after for about 2 hours.

Honey is also considered beneficial in the treatment of arteriosclerosis. It is easily digested and assimilated. The patient should take a glass of water with one teaspoon each of honey and lemon juice in it, before going to bed. He can also take it if he wakes up at night.

2. High Cholesterol Remedies
There have been a variety of cholesterol studies conducted over different periods of time with any number of test subjects. Some of the results are impressive, and all of the cholesterol -lowering foods are worth a try. First-and most important-is to get that heart-smart diet in place, and incorporate the foods that have been shown to help. 

Eating two large apples a day may cause cholesterol levels to drop 16%. Apples are rich in flavonoids and pectin, which may form a gel in the stomach that keeps fats in food from being totally absorbed. Eating half an avocado every day may lower cholesterol by 8% to 42%. Yes, it's high in fat, but it's monounsaturated fat that does good things for the system. Avocado also contains 13 essential minerals, including iron, copper and magnesium, and is rich in potassium. It tastes great, too.

Eating two raw carrots a day reduced cholesterol levels by 11%. People who consumed about 3/4 cup of fenugreek daily for 20 days cut their LDL (bad cholesterol) levels by 33%. Their HDL (good cholesterol) stayed the same. Instead of eating tablespoons of ground fenugreek seeds, choose capsules (580 mg), which are available at health food stores. Take one or two with each meal. Eating four cloves of garlic a day can cut total cholesterol by about 7%. (While fresh garlic is best, garlic supplements are fine.)

Men and women who started out with low blood levels of vitamin C and then took 1,000 mg of vitamin C every day for eight months had a 7% increase of their HDL (good cholesterol) readings. Kiwi has what it takes to help keep cholesterol down-magnesium, potassium and fiber. It makes a satisfying, energy-boosting afternoon snack.

Omega-3 fatty acids have the uncanny ability to break down cholesterol in the lining of blood vessels, and also serve as a solvent for saturated fats in the diet. The end result is less cholesterol in the body and bloodstream, and a reduced likelihood of cholesterol/heart disease complications in the future. Omega-3s are healthy polyunsaturated fats found in many foods, including salmon, mackerel and other fatty fish. Flaxseed oil offers the most cost-effective and beneficial method for increasing the intake of omega- 3 oils in the diet.
