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.
