In brief: Many things to do:

Tx for clogged arteries generally starts with a healthy diet, regular exercise which both can lead to good weight.
Tx also starts w/ stopping smoking, if pt smokes. Except for aspirin, most medication used to tx clogged arteries are prescription only. All meds & tx, including aspirin, should be used under direction of ur doctor given the risks (ex bleeding from aspirin), need for monitoring, etc.

In brief: Artery Health

Unfortunately, there is not much to do for calcification throughout your arteries unless it is causing or about to cause symptoms.
As we age, and based on lifestyle, calcification (atherosclerosis) progresses. To minimize the effect, treating elevated cholesterol's, not smoking, and exercise will all prevent progression and reduce the risk of horrific complications.
