Are there some effective ways to clear up your carotid arteries?

Surgery or stents

Heart
For blockages serious enough to require treatment, there are two options. A carotid endarterectomy is a surgery where the arteries are opened sugically and cleaned out. For some people, stenting is an option. Similar to heart stents, a small tube is inserted like an IV and a small metal coil is released in the area of the blockage, thereby holding the vessel open.

Are there any non-invasive ways to check for levels of atherosclerosis in the arteries?

Yes

Artery
Non-invasive imaging options include coronary calcium score (CCS) and carotid ultrasound for intima-media thickness (CIMT). CCS quantifies calcium in mature artery plaques. CIMT measures earlier changes of vascular disease (CIMT thickness and small plaques without calcium). CIMT requires a skilled sonographer for optimal clinical value. CCS defines later stage disease, but is more reproducible.

Best dose of cayenne pepper for cleaning arteries and ways to take it.

Herbal Myths

Artery
I know of no physician who would prescribe Cayenne Pepper as a treatment. So, I think this question may be beyond the scope of this medical app. I know of no science or medical recommendation for this kind of treatment. I believe this is a myth and I am wary of taking this seriously.

Are there ways to properly manage pregnancy for women with coronary artery disease?

Generally it is ok

Coronary_artery
The physiologic changes of pregnancy (more circulating blood volume, lower blood pressures) should be tolerated well by those with coronary disease, unless there is severely weak heart contractility, or very severe narrowings in the arteries. It's important to review meds with a cardiologist because some may need be stopped to avoid effects on the fetus.

Dr. Bob Ourian answered:

Can 100 percent pomagranate juice clear arteries at 37percent?

No

Artery
Sorry but pomegranate juice isn't going to clear blocked arteries. Regular exercise may increase your HDL and high HDL can help with clearing your arteries. The alternative would be to do an angioplasty.
