In this video, we’re going to talk about what to eat to support the health of your arteries. First, let’s take a look at the foods and substances that can lead to heart disease in the first place.

Heart problems begin in the endothelial layer of your arteries—the permeable membrane that lines your vascular system and lymphatic system.

Inflammation is induced when the endothelial layer of your arteries is exposed to the following:
•Refined carbohydrates
•Seed oils (canola, soy, corn)
•Chronic alcohol use
•Chronic smoking habits

The Coronary Artery Calcification Test (CAC test) and the Heart Rate Variability test are excellent predictors of mortality by assessing damage in your cardiovascular system.

You can also measure the small-dense particle size of LDL, test your homocysteine levels, and test for the MTHFR gene.

Fortunately, there are foods that can help clean out your arteries and undo cardiovascular damage.

Here are nine foods that can unclog and support the health of your arteries:
1. Omega-3 from salmon, sardines, other fatty fish, and cod liver
2. Extra virgin olive oil
3. Dark leafy greens
4. Authentic parmesan cheese (Parmigiano)
5. Nutritional yeast (non-fortified)
6. Raw sauerkraut
7. Almonds
8. Liver
9. Grass-fed red meat

      Awesome! I was just thinking about electrolyte balance. And of course depending on our personal health conditions it can be like a maze, figuring out what’s best for us personally. Like you, I’m thankful for Dr. Berg who sheds light, and helps the public with some direction. Thank you for sharing this. I still have a lot to figure out because of my own conditions. God bless, and I wish you well on your health journey.

    I just wanted to say: for 2 years I’ve had foot arch pain that has made me irritable and not as mobile as I’d like. I watched this doctors video with the reverse stretch and it’s literally given me a new life. I’ve been doing it for about a month, every day, sometimes a few times a day and I can now go on long walks with my young kids again without any foot pain! I’m hoping to introduce jogs then running again soon. I can’t thank you enough Dr Berg, from a fan in Australia!

    I started my journey almost 4 weeks ago by taking your advice with fresh food and 18:6 intermittent fasting. The results have been physically and mentally extremely positive due to having that knowledge, thanks to you! I have lost 15lbs so far and I will continue this life-long journey. I tried eating healthy earlier this year, but it was the intermittent fasting that my body needed as well. Quite a bit of the foods on this list is what I consume, so that’s a great sign. Let’s all hope for a successful New Year in 2024 and I hope to share my results when the time comes!

    Thank you very much Dr.Berg. I really appreciate your honesty and empathy for other humans. You’re helping us to understand our bodies, and how to keep healthy as there is an overwhelming amount of information out there these days, which is probably on purpose to confuse us. Also Doctors are expensive to visit in Ireland (like everything else 😅) and then it feels kind of rushed when you get there because they’re so busy. I get all my information from you. Thank you so much. ❤
