Whether garlic can "clean out" the arteries is unknown; no medical studies I'm aware of. So don't rely solely on garlic. Eat healthfully, avoid bad fats, exercise regularly. ...Read more

I was wondering, what can I do to clean arteries, my sisters had her neck done 2x for clogs. I exercise no smoke drink or drugs, tyvm.

Arteries: Please continue to see your doc and do what he/she says. Beyond that, consider a process called chelation. It can be done w/oral natural meds or the older and more time-consuming IV drip method. There is lots of science to back this up but some docs may not be aware. The TACT study is a good one. TACT 2 is presently being formulated. Peace and good health. ...Read more
