Patients need to eliminate processed, refined, sugary and fatty foods from their diets, according to WebMD, and instead fill up on fruits and vegetables as well as whole grains and legumes.

The New York Times adds that stress reduction is an important aspect of naturally unblocking arteries because stress causes arteries to tighten.
