Treat Your Arteriosclerosis

Arteriosclerosis is a disease marked by the thickening and narrowing of the arteries due to a poor diet. Arteriosclerosis affects any artery in the body, including the ones in the heart, brain, kidneys, as well as the arms and legs.

Arteriosclerosis can happen for a variety of reasons, including plaque buildup inside the arteries (called atherosclerosis), causing the narrowing of the passageways and can lead to serious problems like heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. Additionally, when the arteries become thick and narrow, they cannot deliver enough oxygenated blood to organs and this can lead to other serious health problems.
