Atherosclerosis Treatment

The first step in Atherosclerosis Treatment usually involves medicines


If your atherosclerosis leads to symptoms, the symptoms (such as angina) can be treated.

Like the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff, medicines are usually the first step in treating cardiovascular disease.

However, treatments can also include angioplasty procedures which open up clogged arteries and surgery, such as bypass surgery.

If you have high blood pressure, diabetes, or high blood cholesterol, these conditions can be treated as well. Lowering your blood cholesterol level can slow, stop, or even reverse the buildup of plaque.

Cholesterol lowering can reduce the cholesterol content in unstable plaques to make them more stable and less prone to rupture.

One of the most important ways to have healthier arteries is to make lifestyle changes. Adopt a healthy diet, balanced healthful eating with regular physical activity, don’t smoke and lose weight if you are overweight. If you have high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure or diabetes, follow your treatment plan.

Making lifestyle changes can also help control these health problems.

The regular practice of Vedic Meditation can reduce Atherosclerosis and increased artery size whilst it also develops healthier living habits, like quitting cigarettes, lowering cholesterol and blood pressure to name but a few.
