The Fundamentals
Arteriosclerosis is the disease of the arterial vessels characterized by hardening, thickening, and loss of elasticity in the arterial walls, resulting in altered functions of tissues and organs. Changes may occur in the intima, media, or both. Symptoms may include intermittent claudication, changes in skin temperature and intensity of pulse, headache, dizziness, or memory defects. Some people mistakenly interchange the terms arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a type of arteriosclerosis involving cholesterol deposits and triglycerides. There is no known cause of arteriosclerosis. Risk factors include age, sedentary lifestyle, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, inability to cope with stress, cigarette smoking, diabetes, mellitus, and male sex. Between ages 35 and 44, the death rate for white men is six times that of white women.

Arteriosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, has no known cause, although there are risk factors to take into consideration. Helpful treatments can include regular exercise, changing the diet to low saturated fats, avoiding stress whenever possible, no smoking, and therapies for treatable diseases such as obesity and diabetes, if these are present. Other helpful aids to fighting arteriosclerosis include herbs. Olive Leaf extract is an excellent aid, as it dilates blood vessels so that blood may flow more easily, and protects these vessels from disease. With prolonged use of Olive Leaf, studies have shown it to begin a reversal process on arteriosclerosis. Another helpful herb is Cordyceps Mushroom, which helps prevent arteriorsclerosis and other diseases related to blood vessels of the brain. Additionally Cordyceps helps to relieve stress, which is a known risk factor in arteriosclerosis.
