Coronary ectasia just means that your blood vessels are tortuous, often related to hypertension (high blood pressure). There is no specific treatment for it, per se, but certainly control of your blood pressure is important (goal < 130/80). You can still exercise, just pay attention to your body, and if you aren't feeling well, take it easy. I would focus on risk factor modification -- healthy diet, aerobic exercise, weight loss, stop smoking, minimize alcohol intake, etc.
