Cholesterol will oxidize. Only oxidized cholesterol can stick to your artery walls and clog them up.
Due to personal commitments, i have been absent for almost a month. Now i am back, with a question on how to unclog arteries.
A doctor may give a wide variety of options, such as enzyme supplements and surgery is recommended in extreme cases. Here, i highlight on what foods we can eat in order to help unclog arteries naturally...

List of great foods to unclog arteries, the natural way
Reason why I like these ten, let me count the ways and why.

1-Garlic: The greatest wonder food of them all! Eat at least 1 to 3 cloves of garlic daily, raw or cooked. Many studies showed that regular consumption of garlic reduces cholesterol by at least 10 percent, and helps maintain clean arteries

2-Purple Grape Juice: Grape skin/seed extract has great heart-health properties. Grape juice made from whole grapes, helps clear arteries. It's powerful flavonoids prevent cholesterol stickage, reduces inflammation, blood clots and clears blood vessels.

3-Cherries: This tasty fruit contains more than 17 compounds that help unclog clogged arteries. These compounds give cherries their red color.

4-StrawberriesSimilar to cherries, they contain a wide range of compounds which cut cholesterol levels and help clear out arteries. Strawberries are also packed full of antioxidants.

5-Sweet Potatoes: Jam packed with cholesterol-lowering fiber, beta carotene, and other compounds, a great food to help clear up you arteries

6-Green Tea: Just one cup a day of quality green tea contains a large number of flavonoids which provides antioxidant protection. In addition, green tea contains ‘procyanidins’, which help prevent the formation of blood clots. 
Green tea is so effective as a diet aid because it increases your metabolism and reduces your appetite.
Cholesterol will oxidize. Only oxidized cholesterol can stick to your artery walls and clog them up.
7-Olive Oil: Omega-3 fatty acids are in abundance in olive oil, which counters the inflammatory effects of omega-6 found in vegetable oils. Particles of LDL, or bad cholesterol which is found in olive oil are much less likely to become oxidized than they are in other oils. Only oxidized cholesterol can stick to your artery walls and clog them up.
8-Salmon: Another great source of omega- 3 fats. Herring and tuna are also recommended. Wild salmon, is particularly rich in the omega-3 fats, and these help keep your arteries clean. Wild salmon is better than deep water fish such as tuna, as they contain less toxins.
9-Spinach: Packed with vitamin C and vitamin A. These compounds help prevent cholesterol from becoming oxidized. This helps prevent clogging and helps to release plaque lining the arteries.

10-Pomegranate (including seeds)- As in National Geographic news, according to a 2010 research published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences., antioxidants contained in pomegranate juice may help reduce the formation of fatty deposits on artery walls, limit cell damage and hardening of arteries. The study was done at the University of Naples, Italy and the UCLA-US.  link- here

say NO to hydrogenated oils!
Remember, if you want clean arteries, say NO to hydrogenated oils! These are found in frozen foods, cookies, cakes, chips, pastries etc. If you have clogged arteries, it is particularly important that you avoid these foods, as they will only worsen your condition.
