Blocked Arteries – Naturally Clean Them Out

Clean Out Blocked Arteries Naturally

Blocked arteries are not a death sentence or a life sentence to using heart drugs.  There are natural alternatives to expensive and dangerous drugs.  So called cholesterol drugs – statins are actually dangerous and rob your heart of vital coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10.  Coenzyme Q10 is necessary for cell energy and your heart needs lots of it.  Why would you take something that robs your heart of CoQ10?

Cholesterol is not the heart disease factor it is made out to be.  Inflammation, free radicals and fibrin are much bigger problems as far as blocked arteries goes.  Arteries are damaged by free radicals, cholesterol and fibrin are the body’s attempt to repair the artery.  It is when the cholesterol patch to the arterial wall is hardened by oxidizing from more free radicals or calcified by too much calcium in the blood and/or fibrin not dissolving after it’s short term patching function .   Calcium needs to be balanced with magnesium to be utilized effectively by the body and not combine with cholesterol.

Two natural alternatives to pharmaceuticals are nattokinase and serrapeptase.  These two enzymes dissolve fibrin and cholesterol, clearing the arterial wall throughout the body and brain.  Fibrin is used in the body as a short term patch – scabs are made of fibrin.  The problem is when the body’s natural process to remove the fibrin does not kick in, it builds up.

Nattokinase is a potent fibrinolytic enzyme extracted and highly purified from a traditional Japanese food called Natto, a fermented cheese-like food that has been used in Japan for over 1000 years for its popular taste, and as a folk remedy for heart and vascular diseases. Now, after many centuries in secrecy, nattokinase is finally available in America. Natto is produced by a fermentation process by adding Bacillus natto, a benefical bacteria, to boiled soybeans. The resulting nattokinase enzyme is produced when Bacillus natto acts on the soybeans. While other soy foods contain enzymes, it is only the natto preparation that contains the specific nattokinase enzyme.

By eating this powerful enzyme, the Japanese keep their blood vessels clear and free of dangerous blood clots. Plus, there’s an amazing side effect; because blood flows more freely through your arteries, less blood pressure is required. In fact, a blue ribbon study in Japan showed a 10.9% drop in systolic blood pressure and a 9.7% drop in diastolic blood pressure with nattokinase supplementation.

Doctor Hiroyuki Sumi discovered nattokinase in 1980 while working as a researcher and majoring in physiological chemistry at Chicago University Medical School. After testing over 173 natural foods as potential thrombolytic agents, Sumi found what he was looking for when Natto was dropped onto artificial thrombus (fibrin) in a Petri dish and allowed it to stand at approximately body temperature. The thrombus around the natto dissolved gradually and had completely dissolved within 18 hours.

Blood clots (or thrombi) form when strands of protein called fibrin accumulate in a blood vessel. In the heart, blood clots cause blockage of blood flow to muscle tissue. If blood flow is blocked, the oxygen supply to that tissue is cut off and it eventually dies. This can result in angina and heart attacks. Clots in chambers of the heart can mobilize to the brain. In the brain, blood clots also block blood and oxygen from reaching necessary areas, which can result in senility and/or stroke.

Doctor Hiroyuki Sumi had long researched thrombolytic enzymes searching for a natural agent that could successfully dissolve thrombus (fibrin) associated with blood clots associated with heart attacks and stroke. Sumi named the newly discovered enzyme “nattokinase”, which means “enzyme in natto”. Sumi commented that nattokinase showed “a potency matched by no other enzyme.” Since then, Nattokinase has been the subject of 17 studies.

It has recently been revealed that thrombotic clogging of the cerebral blood vessels may be a cause of dementia. It has been estimated that sixty percent of senile dementia patients in Japan is caused by thrombus. Thrombotic diseases typically include cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral infarction, cardiac infarction and angina pectoris, and also include diseases caused by blood vessels with lowered flexibility, including senile dementia and diabetes.

Don’t you think these inexpensive, natural alternatives make sense and are worth a try?  As always, you will need to check with your doctor if you are on pharmaceuticals for cholesterol, high blood pressure, blood thinners…

Dr. Wright is one of the doctors I follow.  I subscribe to his natural health newsletter.  Here is his general advice for dissolving blood clots (not patient specific – seek the advice of your doctor, unless he recommends a statin).

Dr. Wright: Presently, my recommendations for breaking up clots are:


  • Nattokinase — two 138-milligram capsules every four hours to start. Then, as your condition improves, you can taper off to one capsule every four hours, eventually taking only one capsule three times daily.
  • Fish oil — 1 tablespoon three times a day to start, tapering off to 1 tablespoon, twice daily after some progress is made. Eventually, you will be able to take a general maintenance dose of 1 1/2 tablespoonful daily.
  • Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols) — 400 IU, three times a day to start, tapering down to 600 IU daily.
  • Vitamin C — 2 grams, three times daily to start, then taper down to 1 gram, three times daily. Vitamin C isn’t a “clotbuster” itself, but it should always be included when your body is under stress.

PS – Also works on fibrin based joint pain.  Clear your blocked arteries and eliminate joint pain – nice bonus.

Another enzyme that works the same way (maybe even better) is Serrapeptase.  I have used it for elbow pain – took it at bedtime and woke up 95% pain free!

    Look into intravenous chelation too.

  2. howard says:

    i am interested in knowing more about nattokinas
    enzyme, like where i can buy, what price,,if its sold in canada? etc. please reply thank you,


  3. NaturalHealth says:

    Nattokinase is everywhere and it is very inexpensive. Google “nattokinase”

  4. willie F says:

    I had a 5-bye on July 4th 2000….will this product help my current condition ??

  5. NaturalHealth says:

    I am not a doctor – the reason for a bypass surgery is to provide clean and open arteries for your heart. The surgery itself does nothing to treat the cause of the arterial blockages and are likely to become blocked again unless you change what is causing it. Quite often it is inflammation caused by “fake fats”, you know the so called “healthy, low fat” alternatives to butter, mayonaise… Stay away from margarine, Miracle Whip, vegetable oils except for coconut oil and olive oil.

    Stress, smoking and toxins also contribute to inflammation. Nattokinase, serrapeptase and chelation therapy are arterial cleaning agents. Antioxidants help to prevent the damage to the arteries and veins from free radicals which cause the cholesterol to attach to the artery walls. These products should be beneficial to your condition.

  6. John Kailas says:

    I have used EDTA chellation therapy for my father who suffers from PAD, and blocked carotids
    His carotids in May 2007 were 50 – 60% blocked
    Now his carotids are only 30-35% blocked
    He had 3 differet hospital checkups and every time the atherosclerosis of the carotids appears less
    His legs have not improved but not worsened either
    Reason is he continous smoking and some of the arteries of his legs were 100% blocked. So EDTA could not pass to soften it
    I also administered him metals the next day after treatment through a multivitamins sold in pharmacy
    I also administerd him antioxidants to stabilize him
    It worked
    I now started on Serrapepatase to see if his leg arteries will open at all
    If any one is a medic I can send the results, it is in Greek, but you can have it translated
    EDTA works, I dont want to say which brand I used, because, I comment to help people not to advertize

  7. NaturalHealth says:

    Congratulations. It appears you are having some success with your father’s atherosclerosis. I think serrapeptase is definitely worth trying. I had amazing pain relief (90%) in my elbow in less than 24 hours taking serrapeptase for fibrin related joint pain (worked fast). EDTA is excellent for heavy metals (smoking) and mineral (calcium) buildup. Antioxidants will help against further cholesterol oxidation (from smoking) and fibrin response to the oxidative stress on the arterial walls. Keep us posted on future checkups as to whether serrapeptase helps in this instance. Best wishes.

  8. John Kailas says:

    I have introduced my father in Serrapeptase, 2 weeks ago, but only once per week, taken orally in the morning without food, along with Nattikinase, and cut his Warfarin dosage in the middle
    He also gets 2 EDTA poweder pills per week.
    Once a month he gets a liquid EDTA application, which is supposed to be more effective than poweder EDTA.
    One has to be cautious with EDTA, because if it removes too much Calcium from your blood you can have big problem
    When Itried them on my self I found out that, when taken at too close intervals for my own limits, it lowered my heart pulses per minute from 68 to 62, something never achieved normally, and I felt like getting a heart attack. That is why you have to take minerals, Calcium including the next day or at night if EDTA was taken in the morning
    My fathers arteries are obviously more calcified than mine and he exchibited a better tolerance to it. So when you start taking it you have to establish your own tolerance
    However if you do it in Hospital, they monitor your blood condition and it is safer
    I want to start slowly with Serrapeptase and examine his blood tests because every medic I talked to opposed to its use in conjuction with blood thinners
    I understand that when something is not known to traditional medical practice it creates fear
    However I want to try it and together with the help of the blood tests I will increase the dosage of Serrapeptase and Nattokinase (blood thiner substitute),provided everything seems ok
    I had people laughing at me especially doctors
    but I have test results to prove that it worked
    I hope Serrapeptase can help opening the 100% blocked arteries, but surely it will take time to establish if it works or not, I estimate another 2 years

    Whatever tests I get I will keep you posted
    Whoever wants me to send him my fathers test results my mail is
    You are welcome to share with me your experience
    I am not a doctor, I am a Mechanical Engineer, I just wanted to help when traditional medical treatment was offering no options.
    My father had one stent in one leg, the other leg artery was so much blocked they could not pass the stent for fear of artery rupture
    So the option according to current medical practice was to provide blood thinners, to take you as far as it goes. Eventually his leg would be totally blocked and would develop severe pain and gangrene, and obviously would have to be amputated
    If I dont use the language correctly, excuse me, I come from Greece, Greek is my mother tongue.
    Obviously I had to find a mechanism, that either stops the progress of atherosclerosis, or reverts the problem or both.
    Antioxidants do stop the progress.
    I used Green Tea and pomegrannete caps, grape seed extract, vitamins C and E, and natural squeezed juices. You can also help your self if you eat food that makes your body juices more alcalic.
    Check alcalic and Acidic food tables
    Basically whatever you eat (in your dish) 30% has to be acidic and 70% alcalic. By doing this you stop atherosclerosis, arthritis, and you loose all excessive fat, which is bad for your arteries and your joints
    It is easy to find in the web tables showing Acidic and Alcalizing food
    At the same time quit smoking, all the above will work much faster if you do
    I hope I have contributed a bit towards helping a fellow human being or sufferer through practical advice, which cost very little to apply and they will get you back your health



  9. NaturalHealth says:

    Your English is fine, thank you for sharing your experiences. It looks like you are taking a safe approach to treating your father’s condition naturally. One must be very observant of any and all changes as any treatment can create certain problems. Natural is safer drugs and surgery but still must be watched closely (like the calcium depletion while using EDTA).

    I wasn’t aware of a blood thinning quality for nattokinase or serrapeptase, I will have to research that further. My father and my wife’s father are both on warfarin and both have “bleeds” under their skin. This seems far more powerful and dangerous than any natural blood thinners out there.

    You have many good approaches to reversing atherosclerosis. Keep up the good work and keep us updated on your father’s progress.

  10. John Kailas says:

    To help with skin bleeds treat with at least of 1 gram of vitamin C, will make arteries more elastic
    This skin bleed is very common to Warfarin users
    Doctor here said there was no danger though, when I pointed to him about this same problem as your father has, and asked if it is better to reduce the dosage he said there was no problem, My fathers hands are looking bruized from the blood under the broken skin, same as your dads I suppose.
    When you give vitamin C, it better be slow release pill, to last for more hours through out the day

  11. John Kailas says:

    To continue with my observations for my fathers progress on Peripheral Artery Disease, in January 2010 he told me that for the same walking distance he no longer hearts on his thighs – only on his calfs.
    I assume this is another sign of improvement
    I know treat him with antioxidants – EDTA- and Serrapeptase

    I have to note that after taking Serrapeptase for 10 days and had a blood test for prothrombine because he is also on Warfarin, his blood DID NOT BECOME RUNNIER, but in between the thin blood produced with warfarin and normal blood
    The doctor had to ask to increase his WARFARIN dosage slightly
    I have the feeling this wasnt even necessary

    Other observations are that his general appearance looks healthier even though he smokes, and his personallity went back to normal. I believe this is due to better brain oxygenation
    His driving is much better as well – there is a huge improvement from the huge deterioration

    I will keep you informed – so far I am really excited



  12. johan muller says:

    I have recently been diagnosed with PAD. My legs (1 leg) gets all the symtoms, burning, numb cold foot at night etc. I stopped smoking (3 days) and am worried about to severity of this condition. I am unemployed and living in South Africa, which means that we have very little health support here. What can i do myself to prevent this from becoming life threatening, and how serious is it already. The doctors here dont seem to be that imformative.



  13. NaturalHealth says:

    Johan, First off, I am not a doctor, that being said, here are some suggestions. PAD is a buildup of plaque or calcified plaque inside your arteries that restricts blood flow to your extremities. Plaque can be dissolved by EDTA. Magnesium can help your body use calcium more effectively (instead of in your arteries). Nattokinase or Natto, Serrapeptase enzymes can also help dissolve arterial plaque (or anywhere in the body plaque may exist). EFA’s or essential fatty acids may help to keep your blood flowing better. Vitamin C, green or white tea, coffee and other antioxidants will help protect the arteries from free radical damage and oxidation of the plaque in your arteries.

    PAD can be very serious. Heart attack and stroke are the biggest risks but this is affecting your whole body and pretty much any bodily function can be affected. Quitting smoking is good (one cause of PAD) but it will take time for your body to recover from that. Eat healthy when possible. Stay away from trans-fats… I hope this helps – wishing you the best.

  14. Rahul K says:

    Hi, I am male 36 years, with 3 stents in my LAD. Presently on Ecospirin -150, Clopivas-75, Atorac-20, stiloz-100. I am also taking allupurinol-100mg for my uric acid. I have problems with swelling of legs(foots) and chest pain. Can any one provide me with some valuable advice. Whether I should try Serrapeptase, Vitamin C, EDTA-chelation for improvement of condition along with my present medicines. please suggest on my email


  15. John Kailas says:

    As I have written in earlier posts I introduced my father into Serrapeptase in October 2009.
    He takes 5 times in a week 1 80.000 units pill per day. The remaining 2 days I give him 2 oral EDTA chellator
    You can see in my previous post that his condition was really bad, he could hardly walk
    Yesterday after 2 years of Serrapeptase we walked a mile without problem. He told me his legs don’t hurt him any more. He is now 77 years old and keep going even though he still smokes a packet a day.
    Serrapeptase and EDTA work miracle for those who trust it and know how to use it
    I did not expect so much improvement
    This time we did not do any more exams to to what is the percentage of the blockage, but it is self evident he gets no cramp in the leg even when he walks uphill
    Unfortunatelly he has a very bad back now and this is very difficult to correct.
    I can only say ahve faith and try hard, also change your life style at least walk for more than half an hour daily. All the PAD sufferers condition will improve together with EDTA and Serrapeptase

    Good luck and if you need any advise send me a mail at

    I dont sell anything

  16. NaturalHealth says:

    That’s great news about your father. Amazing how inexpensive supplements can achieve what high priced drugs do not (personal opinion due to my experience). My Serrapeptase experience eliminated excruciating elbow pain in one day! May or may not work the same wonders for every similar ailment, but for a 3 month supply for $10 bucks – MONEY WELL SPENT. The arterial clearing ability was a bonus for me. Thanks for the update and wishing continuing improvement for your father.

  17. John Kailas says:


    I thought I should keep you and the other bloggers updated because now I have my proof that if you insist to the EDTA/ SERRAPTASE/ ANTIOXIDANT treatment faithfully you can have results.
    I wanted to share my knowledge with sufferers some of which cannot afford hospitalisation in order to improve or save their lifes
    I also want to add to my previous posts that my father’s mental ability was lessened 2-3 years ago.
    Today because his arteries are clean, I can clearly see his is again mentally alert due to the better oxygenation of his brain
    Thanks God for enlighting me to search and find solutions that the medical community does not offer for reasons I cannot comprehend
    I would like to express my gratitude to the late Dr. Nieper for announcing his results after treating people with Serrapeptase and the US Navy doctors, during W.W.II for opening our eyes about the chelation abilities of EDTA
    I send all my love to the sufferers, and I would like to tell them there is an ocean of hope that their condition can improve

    I have done all the serrapeptase,vitamins,pinebark extract and now taking natto and vitamin k2-mk7.I believe its all helping my circulation but the latest info in the medical journals are focusing on vit k2 as it keeps your calcium where it belongs and nothing else works as well.Too clean and it has most of the vit.k2 removed so maybe those gross little styrofoam packages in the oriental food stores is the way to get it.I read its only nessisary to consume 1/4 of one of those per day to get benifits.Glta.

  19. NaturalHealth says:

    Glad I could offer some help in your quest to help your father. Yes, disease management doctors offer little to prevent disease or provide actual cures that are out there. Seems they want the permanent income from symptom control meds.

  20. Awang says:

    Ladies and gents. Thanks for this site you have going here! As I’m writing this, I am sitting in the hospital waiting to have triple bypass surgery in two days time. I had a heart attack two weeks ago. All the doctors who have looked at me point out that they are “surprised” by my situation.

    I’m 45, weigh 60 kg, eat mostly vegetables for the last eight years (meat only when invited out occasionally), stopped smoking when I was 21, have never drank at all, power walk regularly blah blah blah. I also do not register cholesterol, or blood pressure issues on the tests and I do not have diabetes. I do think however, that I tend to harbour emotions, particular anger inwardly. My father also had bypass surgery about twenty years ago. He died eleven years ago from something unrelated.

    Of course I have already been told “vaguely” about the meds I will have to take for life after surgery. There’s the anti-cholesterol meds, the the ace inhibitors, beta blockers, the blood thinners and so on.

    As I’m under stress thinking about the upcoming surgery, I did not read everything on here with too clear a mind. I will hopefully do so again in a few days after the surgery!!!

    I will appreciate any information from one and all who knows or has had experience with this kind of situation.

    Take care and hope to speak again

  21. NaturalHealth says:

    Sorry to hear about your predicament. I hope all goes well for you. Yes, it sounds like you have none of the traditional risk factors other than a family history. Stress and bad emotions can contribute to your situation. I am not a doctor, but I would find a method to de-stress and work out your emotions that works for you. Avoid trans fats, vegetable oils (other than olive and coconut oils) and boost your antioxidants. Avoid soy unless it is a fermented soy product. EDTA, serrapeptase, nattokinase and modified citrus pectins are all natural ways to unblock your arteries.

    I do not have personal experience with heart attacks, so I can’t offer any insight. Wishing you the best.

  22. Lin says:

    I am writing as I am at my wits end. I had a DVT when I was 22 years of age. Whether I have had little clots in my leg from time to time is debatable. Now at 49 I had one in the back of my knee (DVT). I hardly ever took a headache tablet, always excercised and ate fairly healthily. I take no other medication except from time to time salmon oil and milk thistle. When I was on warfarin treatment 30 years ago I fell pregnant and had to stop it. Later I had twins. I have been on warfarin now for six months. Not for two weeks in a row did I get a favourable result. My blood will either be too thin or mostly just stay too thick. The blood tests and the medication is driving me to depression. I do not live in a place where anyone seems to know anything else but warfarin. And it appears you cannot take anything else while on this medication. I have acquired some Nattokinase and it is sitting in the cubboard as I am to uninformed and yes scared to start it. I also have some Q enzyme 10. What do I do? I understand that the problem is not being taken care of. I excercise again – though just walking 30 min a day. I do not smoke, or drink and eat generally healithy. Please, please advise. Regards L

  23. NaturalHealth says:

    Sorry to hear about your predicament. I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Is there any natural/holistic doctors near you? Warfarin/Coumadin is a dangerous blood thinner, that is why the constant monitoring of your blood by a doctor because you can literally bleed to death if your blood gets too thin (also used as a rat poision – rats and mice bleed to death). It is also something you cannot stop taking all at once without risk – better to be weened off of it. There are better natural blood thinners like fish or Krill oil, Ginko… I would think a serrapeptase or nattokinase would be a natural attempt to resolve the problem rather than merely blood thinning to “live with” the problem. It is dangerous to mix any natural blood thinner with Warfarin as it is such a powerful (and unnatural) blood thinner. Consult with a natural doctor if you want something other than an unnatural “work around” for your condition. Wishing you the best.

  24. Reggie Yama says:

    Hi. I came across your site looking for some info regarding hypertension, artherosclerosis, etc or something similar. I just turned 50 yrs old, male and have high blood pressure at 150/100 and have been told that it is quite high and needs medication. Being hesitant as I’m wary of traditional meds (side effects) as I’m more inclined to natural or holistic way, a friend recommended ANXIN (chinese anti-hypertensive compound tablets) which has lowered my BP to 120/80 now.

    I just want to know if any of you guys familiar with this ANXIN? I have read that artherosclerosis is one of the causes of hypertension so maybe you can shed a light on this. Basically my questions are, any review or info about ANXIN if it is safe or not (searched google but couldnt find any)is it something to do with blood thinning as been discussed in your site?

    What are blood thinners that are natural and safe? I know you are not a doctor but have extensive knowledge and wisdom on this matter and would appreciate your insights.

    Thank you.

    Reggie 🙂

  25. NaturalHealth says:

    I have never heard of Anxin – thanks for bringing it to my attention! Apparently Anxin is the brand name for the amino acid l-theanine – almost exclusively from the tea plant. It apparently also has a calming effect useful for anxiety… By Googling Anxin – I found nothing related to the product. Google anxin blood pressure and you come up with sources (cheap) and information on the product and uses. I have not seen any references to any blood thinning properties for Anxin / l-theanine. Main properties are , lower blood pressure, relaxation and other neurotransmitter benefits. Being an amino acid, it should be safe – much safer than prescription blood pressure medications.

    Atherosclerosis and hypertension are often related but not necessarily so. Generally, a healthy cardiovascular system consists of “normal” blood pressure and unrestricted blood flow. Aside from atherosclerosis and high blood pressure is a condition referred to as “sticky blood”. This blood state can be responsible for high blood pressure, decreased blood flow and blood clotting (serious). Fish oil, krill oil, vitamin K, vitamin E, garlic, ginger, Ginko are some of the more popular natural blood thinners. Serrapeptase and Nattokinase are 2 enzymes that dissolve excess fibrin in the blood and dissolve plaque from the inside of arteries and veins helping blood flow.

    Antioxidants will help prevent the free radical damage to the insides of the arteries that plaque attempts to aid in healing – like a scab. Vegetable oils / trans fats / margarine (other than coconut and olive oil) produce a lot of free radicals and heavily contribute to atherosclerosis. Omega 3 fatty acids – ALA / EPA / DHA from fish oil or krill oil have other benefits in addition to blood thinning. Hope this helps Reggie.

  27. Susan says:

    I have been trying to find a contact email etc. but I will turn to this way. It is refreshing to find a site that gives great information without selling something. I have so many questions to ask you about quantaties (L-Arginine and citrulline) multivitamines/minerals to stop my arteries from hardening (they are only 10% and told not to worry) but I do worry and want to stop it now and prevent it. Is this the only way to communicate?
    Kind Regards,

  28. NaturalHealth says:

    Hi Susan,
    I am not a doctor and cannot legally recommend any natural treatments. I can, under the first amendment, write about my experiences and report natural news events… There are many natural treatments that can aid in clearing arteries. It really depends upon the cause of the build up. Generally, EDTA, serapeptase, nattokinase can help to clear deposits. Antioxidants can prevent the scarring and the assault on the arteries from free radicals… Too much calcium in the blood can also cause calcium build up. There are many nutrients that aid the arteries in repair. Overall good nutrition helps the body take care of itself. Apparently your doctor is not too concerned, at least at this point. Decide for yourself what makes sense. It sounds like you are aware of natural options – do what you think is best and keep your doctor in the loop. I hope this helps.
