artery blockage
Posted by: anneh ()
Date: November 23, 2019 08:31PM

Hi, have been vegetarian for many years, mostly raw, juice veggies every day. Just been told by dr that I may have blocked carotid arteries =:0 won't know results until I see him in December. Now wondering if my addition of 1/2 avocado every day plus probably about 1/4 almonds daily has caused a problem. I was also eating low fat organic yogurt daily which is why I can't say I am vegan but will stop that now. Otherwise I don't do anything that could cause this problem. So IF the results are not good should I eliminate avo and nuts? I am 81yo but in very good health, walk daily, good weight etc.

Drink fresh pomegranate juice! It's a potent cardiovascular elixir. Nattokinase is an enzyme that helps purify the blood as well...

Nattokinase: A Promising Alternative in Prevention and Treatment of Cardiovascular Diseases
“Nattokinase (NK), the most active ingredient of natto, possesses a variety of favourable cardiovascular effects and the consumption of Natto has been linked to a reduction in CVD mortality. Recent research has demonstrated that NK has potent fibrinolytic activity, antihypertensive, anti-atherosclerotic, and lipid-lowering, antiplatelet, and neuroprotective effects. This review covers the major pharmacologic effects of NK with a focus on its clinical relevance to CVD. It outlines the advantages of NK and the outstanding issues pertaining to NK pharmacokinetics. Available evidence suggests that NK is a unique natural compound that possesses several key cardiovascular beneficial effects for patients with CVD and is therefore an ideal drug candidate for the prevention and treatment of CVD. Nattokinase is a promising alternative in the management of CVD.” (Biomarker Insights, 2018)

When the food is right and we are still not well,
it means in most cases that the exercise part is missing.
Register with a gym.

Make sure you are not gluten sensitive and if so, eliminate gluten:

JTP's idea of nattokinase is good. YOu can buy or make natto to get it in a food form.

Nopal cactus leaves are good for your condition. You can buy them at a mexican grocery store and make a raw smoothie. They sell them already cleaned.

These two doctors are helpful for more understanding:
