In brief: Healthy lifestyle
General recommendation is to control blood pressure, cholesterol levels, glucose levels (if diabetic), adhere to a healthy diet (mediterranean is great!), quit smoking and be physically active (at least 30 minutes per day 3 times a week).
Aspirin is commonly used as a first medication unless there is an indication for a blood thinner.

In brief: Time
A transient ischemic attack is a stroke that spontaneously resolves.
All that it takes is time. However, often patients with a stroke are given clot-busting drugs to open up the clogged artery since you cannot tell initially.
