There is a common belief that blockages in the arteries cannot be reversed. Is the reversal of blockages at all possible?

Life-style changes and treatment of high cholesterol by appropriate treatment aiming to bring the LDL cholesterol below 70mgm will halt the progress of narrowing of the arteries due to atherosclerosis and will result in reversal of blockages. Heavily calcified blockages are slow to reverse. However, most blockages get naturally bypassed through collateral circulation. Regular moderate exercise, maintenance of normal weight, normal BP, normal postprandial blood sugar will increase collateral circulation.
