Medtronic of Canada has been selected as one of the first three companies to participate in a programme that uses new technologies to fight treatment-resistant hypertension, it was announced August 19th. Neil Fraser, President of Medtronic of Canada Ltd. commented, "Medtronic of Canada is enthusiastic to be participating in the pioneering MaRS EXCITE programme with our SymplicityTM Renal Denervation Catheter System. Through its evaluation of Symplicity, EXCITE will develop the economic evidence to determine the applicability and cost-effectiveness required by the Ontario health system to make the appropriate decisions on the adoption of this novel, cost-effective, and clinically-proven technology that has the potential to benefit Ontarians suffering from pharmacotherapy-resistant hypertension."

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored ways to handle hypertension. According to Yourwellness Magazine, "Many people today are very likely to conduct their day-to-day business unaware that they are suffering from hypertension – a condition in which extreme stress attacks the body’s systems and can make you feel as though, you’re literally carrying, ‘a great weight’. Fortunately, managing and easing the discomfort of hypertension is a relatively straight-forward process." (http://www.yourwellness.com/2012/12/handling-hypertension/#sthash.aWHZ6p3W.dpuf)
Yourwellness Magazine outlined three main ways to handle hypertension:
1. Diet. Eat more fruits and vegetables and natural foods, and cut down on fatty foods.
2. Weight management through exercise. Regular activity helps to lower blood pressure as well as weight, which, as a consequence heightens cardiovascular health. More effective blood circulation will also help to minimise the onset of diseases that are associated with hypertension, as well as reducing the effects of the condition itself.
3. Physical therapies. Massages are effective in relieving symptoms as they help to alleviate stress levels and make blood pressure levels lower by the vigorous manipulation of muscles, as well as allowing the body to function in a more efficient manner.
