Until recently, sclerosis (calcification) of the heart valves was felt to be a benign finding however recents studies have suggested that calcification may be an indicator of heart disease even if you have no symptoms. Although there is no consensus currently, it is likely that sclerosis represents a marker for heart disease. That means that it should be followed by tests to monitor progression and you should also be followed closely to monitor for development of coronary (heart blood vessel) blockages.
Additionally, your cholesterol and blood pressure should be tightly controlled and you should follow good principles of diet, exercise and non smoking lifestyle.
It is unlikely that one can "cure" the problem, but with appropriate measures you should be able to limit progression. Good luck
