In brief: You can't

Curing coronary heart disease implies that the diagnosis has already been made.
Once you have coronary disease, there is no cure. However, you can reduce the risk of complications by eating a healthy diet, exercising, controlling blood pressure, stopping smoking, losing weight, and lowering cholesterol.

Once CAD is present, treatment is geared to controlling symptoms and slowing progression.
This includes lifestyle modifications (smoking cessation, weight loss, etc), control of blood pressure and diabetes, weight loss, exercise, etc. Despite some claims, it is extremely rare for plaque to disappear it is present.
