We are giving away one double pass to The Andrews Sisters’ tribute show, which is on at The Events Centre, Caloundra on August 2 at 11am. These khaki-clad gals are bringing back the tunes.

FROM THE EDITOR

I

spent much of my 20s trying to find the ideal diet in search of the key to longevity and wellness. There was the low-carb stage, which my Italian blood struggled to accept, and there was the horrendous lemon detox diet. If Beyonce was doing it, why couldn’t I? I’ll tell you why – because food is too good. Then there was the Asian-inspired diet, which consisted of a healthy mix of fruit, broccoli and brown rice. Perhaps I took it too far as my husband finally refused to eat yet another cucumber stuffed with broccoli stems and beetroot. Fair enough. It took until my early 30s to realise that there is so much more to good health than adopting a short-term diet. My belief is that it’s about balance and adopting a lifestyle that suits your body’s individual needs. Diet, exercise, stress management and mental health are all vital parts of the journey to contentment and wellbeing. Life factors and stressors need to be considered and sometimes it’s OK to cut yourself some slack and relax. This week we launch our new monthly My health feature – a section I’m excited to bring our readers. You can read the four-page feature starting on page 30. Also this edition, we speak with volleyballer Caitlin Bettenay who is smashing it on the world stage and is the epitome of good health. Enjoy!

QUICK CHAT

GIVING BACK First job? Apprentice panel beater when I was 16. I’m fairly sure I was Australia’s worst panel beater. As a young person I struggled to find my way; my dad told me I should go get a trade, but probably I should have finished school and gone to university. What are you currently working on? We’re in the midst of piloting our village buddies mentoring program – we have 50 adult mentors matched with 50 children who need another positive adult in their life. There’s a lot of work that goes into recruiting, screening and training and matching mentors, and we’re particularly excited as we see it very much as a preventative tool: instead of waiting for families to get into difficult we’re getting in early. Your family includes… My partner Gayle and seven kids between us. Four adult kids and three younger ones. First car? A 1971 Holden Torana. I went on to own every model Torana that was ever made. Exciting cars and affordable for a young guy. Best advice you’ve been given? It came from my mum and it was to play nicely and share. We expect it of every seven-year-old but we don’t seem to expect it of ourselves as adults.

inspiration

BIO Chris Turner is the CEO of Sunshine Coast charity SunnyKids. In 1991 he began working as a youth worker in Victoria and in 2003 Turner became the first man in Australia to run a women’s refuge. He started the SunnyKids children’s charity in 2009 and in 2011 he launched the national literacy program Read2remember. His life’s work is to ensure every child gets a fair go.

Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? I ended up homeless on the beaches of France after following someone’s poor advice and I really learned what it’s like to have nothing. The advice was that there was plenty of work there. I was holidaying in the UK, was led to believe all I had to do was hitchhike to the south of France and I’d get a job in the hotels down there but there was no money to get back home. I ended up staying there for three months, lived on the beach with a bunch of other homeless people. I was about 20. Your greatest regret? I think not believing in myself enough as a young person. In my mid-20s I went back to high school and studied at night school and suddenly in a different context I discovered I was quite a good student. From there I went on to university and got the qualifications I needed to do the work I do today.

“We expect every seven-year-old to share but we don’t seem to expect it of ourselves as adults”

What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Cotton Tree caravan park at Christmas. It’s surprising how many locals are there.

Chris Turner

Best day in your life? Every day is the best day of my life.

If you could change one thing on the Coast, what would it be? Not much. We become the first community in Australia to make sure every kid gets the opportunities they deserve. It’s not okay when that child doesn’t get that opportunity, whether through economics, social or emotional health, education; whatever the reason, when the child has that opportunity taken away it’s the disappointment of a lifetime. People can join our child sponsorship program whereby for as little as $10 they could secure a village buddy for a vulnerable child.

What achievement are you most proud of? Last year I built myself a house. For someone who had no experience of that, it was a big achievement. In a broader sense, my work with SunnyKids – I feel pretty good about that – and, of course, my family. You are happiest when? I’m on the golf course. What frustrates you the most? Injustice. When people in positions of power – and by that I mean most middle-class Australians – take advantage of that at the expense of people who don’t have any power. How do you deal with your frustrations? Work harder for SunnyKids and try and change it. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? Believe in yourself. Tea or coffee? Tea. Black. NRL or AFL? NRL. The Broncos.

FEATURE STORY

THAT GUT FEELING The microbiome is a fascinating universe teeming with life and we are only just beginning to understand its close links with our brain and its fundamental role in all aspects of our health and wellbeing. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.

“It is estimated that half of the Australian population will suffer from a digestive problem… with microbiota connected to diseases”

A

s you read this, there are trillions of tiny creatures dancing around in your stomach. Scientists believe there are around 1000 species of different microbes living in our gut – making it more complex than any rainforest in the world. Until recently, the gut and its associated problems – bloating, gurgling, indigestion – were not topics deemed socially acceptable for the dinner table. But, scientists, doctors and health gurus alike are now screaming the words ‘healthy gut’ from all corners of the globe. And, if you haven’t heard the rumblings, it’s time to sit up and listen. Everyone from researchers at Harvard to those at the John Hopkins School of Medicine are talking about the gut. Why? For good reason. It is estimated that half of the Australian population will suffer from a digestive problem in the next 12 months, with microbiota connected to diseases including mental health, stroke, asthma, obesity, diabetes and even pre-eclampsia in pregnant women. As Ancient Greek physician Hippocrates once said: “All disease begins in the gut’’. Unfortunately, it’s taken modern civilisation around 2500 years to catch up. It is believed around 90 per cent of research into the issue has been published

only in the past five years. Researchers, authors and nutritionists are now dishing out facts, figures and food suggestions as the topic takes hold. The research is coming thick and fast. In May, the American National Institutes of Health revealed that a pre-clinical study linked gut microbes and the immune system to a genetic disorder that may cause stroke or seizures. The study indicates that gut bacteria can influence the structure of the brain’s blood vessels.

Centre at Sydney’s St George and Sutherland Hospital campus will investigate microbiota in the gut and how it causes disease. So, for those of us who want to learn more, what exactly is the gut and what do we need to know? According to The Gut Foundation the gastrointestinal tract is made up of seven key organs – the gall bladder, large and small intestines, liver, oesophagus, pancreas and stomach. Interestingly, every human has a unique

“The gut is emerging as a key organ for health and appears to play a role in everything from obesity and diabetes to Parkinson’s disease” Lydia Sutakowsky

In Australia, a clinical trial published in May in the Journal of BMC Medicine revealed that dietary improvements benefiting the gut may improve the management of depression. Meanwhile in February, the Australian Government announced $4 million in funding for the nation’s first micro gut health research centre. The Microbiome Research

gut just as we have unique fingerprints. And, what it can do is nothing short of amazing. Research proves that this particular body organ is hugely responsible for our physical health and mental wellbeing. Stress, antibiotics, lack of exercise and poor diet all contribute to an unhealthy gut, which in turn can lead to health conditions such as bloating, irritable bowl, leaky gut,

certain cancers, diabetes and a range of auto-immune diseases. If we can find the right diet to suit our microbiome, we can alter our destiny in regards to disease. For example, scientists believe that people with a predisposition to diabetes can change their health journey. How exactly? By following a healthy, balanced diet rich in plant foods, says leading Sunshine Coast nutritionist Lydia Sutakowsky. Sutakowsky recently launched Sunshine Coast Gut Clinic – a practice thought to be the only one of its kind in Queensland – and she says food choices can help the gut microbiome to thrive or diminish. “At its simplest, it’s about eating a variety of foods, eating plant foods,’’ she tells My Weekly Preview. “Being stressed out isn’t good for the system. Smoking, too much alcohol, not sleeping enough are all things that are thought to have a bit of a play on the gut microbiota. There is so much investment in research into this field. It (the gut issue) is not going away any time soon. “The gut is emerging as a key organ for health and appears to play a role in everything from obesity and diabetes to Alzheimer’s disease.” Sutakowsky, who has a Bachelor of Science with a diploma in nutrition and dietetics, decided to branch solely into the field of gut health after she recognised a myweeklypreview.com.au

17/07/2017 12:51:12 PM


FEATURE STORY Sutakowsky suggests eating rice, oats, quinoa and foods such as green (unripe) bananas, cashews, beans, lentils and Hi-Maize to achieve a diversity of good bugs. The gut’s influence on mental health is another focal point of research. While medical practitioners have always understood that the brain can affect the gut, causing butterflies or tummy upsets, new research shows that it works both ways. This is why the gut is now referred to as the ‘second brain’ and a healthy diet is vital. The gut is connected to the brain by more than 100 million neurons and the two are in constant communication. The theory has strengthened as a result of new research and medical advancements, including faecal transplants, which are used to restore the gut microbiota. Anecdotal evidence that recipients of faecal transplants mimic the mood and characteristics of donors was revealed at the Royal Australasian College of Physicians Congress held in Melbourne during May. Faecal transplants are becoming an increasingly popular treatment for conditions including chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome and autism. Interestingly, although the DNA of humans usually only varies between 0.1 per cent – 0.5 per cent, the mixture of microbiome varies as much as 80 per cent. Associate Professor Patrick Charles from the Department of Infectious Diseases at Austin Health spoke of the connection ahead of the event: “It is only now that we are beginning to recognise and understand the influence of microbiome on both our mind and body. “Anecdotally, I have heard stories about patients experiencing fluctuations in their mood after receiving a faecal transplant. “There have even been reports that patients with no prior history of depression have become depressed after receiving a transplant from someone with depression. “There have also been cases where dramatic body changes have occurred – both rapid weight gain and weight loss, each time aligned to the donor. “As the health sector continues to

experiment with faecal transplants for various conditions, careful selection and screening of the donor has to remain a focus. “We’re still really only just scratching the surface of what impacts microbiomes have on health and disease, but as DNA sequencing techniques advance, so will our understanding of their role.’’ Naturopath Jodi Chapman is the director of the Sunshine Coast’s Advanced Wellness and Behavioural Centre. She is not surprised by the findings that link the gut and brain. “Many of the brain neurotransmitters are not only used in both the gut and the brain, but they are also produced in the gut, so when your gut is inflamed, not functioning or nutritionally deficient, your brain becomes unable to function at the capacity it is required to,’’ she tells My Weekly Preview. “Just to name a few, serotonin is used approximately 10 per cent in your brain for a healthy happy mood, and 90 per cent in the gut for bowel movement and contraction. When serotonin is low due to high stress, sometimes constipation or diarrhoea is your response, and that can be immediate. “If your gut is unhealthy or you eat the wrong foods, you can immediately suffer with low serotonin, triggering either anxiety, anger, irritability, migraine, headache, sugar or alcohol cravings, or sadness. “Dopamine is another brain chemical that is produced in your gut, from proteins derived from your diet, though converted by specific good bacteria. “When levels are low your brain will feel mentally exhausted, unmotivated, and unable to feel elated or a sense of achievement. Physically, low dopamine produces adrenaline, producing your physical energy allowing you to exercise, or provide the energy you require for day to day tasks. “Many more brain chemicals, such as acetylcholine, and GABA also play dual roles involved in both gut, body and brain affecting digestion, the ability to relax, and to reduce anxiety.”

pattern in patient referrals – 70 per cent were for IBS, diverticular and coeliac diseases – a consequence both of the way we live our lifestyles and how we eat. “There are more processed foods, we are frequently eating takeaway and dining out. In regards to food choices, we tend to eat less wholesome and whole foods,’’ she says. “Twenty-seven per cent of women over 45 years of age suffer from chronic constipation. One in 70 Australians has coeliac disease and as diagnosis becomes easier, these rates are expected to rise. IBS is prevalent in around 15 per cent of Australians. “What we know that keeps coming up [in research] is the more types of plant food people eat, the better the microbiome.’’ Fermented foods have become the new kale, with most people believing it is the way to a healthier gut. While foods such as kimchi and kombucha are beneficial, Sutakowsky says it comes down to a lot more than that. To establish a healthy microbiome we need abundance and diversity. “It comes down to the variety in what we eat. It’s a boring message but it’s important. We need a good variety of fruit, vegetables, legumes and wholegrains. “These are the foods that are fermented [naturally in your body]. Fermentation happens in our colon. Fibre reaches the colon undigested, as does resistant starch. Resistant starch is found in cooked and cooled carbohydrate foods such as rice, potatoes, pasta, oats. Fibre and resistant starch are called prebiotics. They nourish the good bacteria in the bowel. “These prebiotics are fermented by the good bugs in the colon. The fermentation process produces short chain fatty acids such as butyrate and acetate. “Butyrate is a fuel for the cells lining the colon that encourage cellular growth. This leads to improved intestinal barrier function, reduces mucosal inflammation and improved intestinal motility. The thought is that it’s really important in the prevention of colon cancer. “When the good bugs are fermented they grow themselves [without the help of additional probiotics].”

TIPS TO A HEALTHY GUT • Eat more plant foods (fruit, vegetables, wholegrains, legumes and pulses) • Try some fermented foods like yoghurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir and kombucha • Avoid over-use of antibiotics • Limit alcohol consumption and stop smoking • Exercise and manage stress.

WHAT IS A MICROBE? Our body contains around 100 trillion microbes, including bacteria and viruses. To put it in perspective, there are more microbes on your hand than there are people on the planet. The majority of our microbes live in our gut – the gut microbiota. In fact, around 70 per cent of our immune system is located in the gut. Within the gastrointestinal microbiota there are 300 to 500 bacterial species, which comprise of two million genes. This is known as the microbiome. At birth our intestinal tract is sterile and an infant’s gut is colonised by maternal and environmental bacteria during birth (vaginal vs caesarean), diet (breast milk vs formula), sanitation and exposure to antibiotics. As we grow, food is the key to feeding and growing good bacteria. Studies show microbes are linked to decreased cases of cancer and many other diseases such as Parkinson’s, diabetes, liver and heart disease and depression.

6100 LOCALS COULD HAVE UNDIAGNOSED DIABETES Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service clinical director of diabetes and endocrinology Dr Shyam Sunder says more than 6100 people on the Sunshine Coast could have undiagnosed type 2 diabetes. Sunder encourages people to check their diabetes risk and talk with their GP if they have any concerns. There are a number of local programs to help people manage the condition. Type 2 Diabetes & Me will be held on July 26 from 9am to 1pm at the Maroochydore RSL Sub Branch. Contact 5319 4848 to book. A Diabetes Support Group organised by Caloundra BlueCare will meet on July 28 and BlueCare also host regular Tai Chi for Diabetes classes. Contact 5438 5000 for information.

INCENTIVES FOR INFILL DEVELOPMENT OFFERED Incentives are being offered to developers who invest in infill development projects in Nambour and Caloundra. Stimulating these economies is a joint goal held by the Sunshine Coast Council and Unitywater, who have created an initiative that offers a 50 per cent reduction on council infrastructure charges for targeted developments in central Nambour and Caloundra built to a deadline and where spare network capacity exists. Infill development focuses on developing vacant or under-used parcels within already developed urban areas. The Infill Development Incentives Policy is available for any development that doubles, at a minimum, the demand of the site and the two-year program is capped at $10 million.

PLAZA PARKING BOOST Construction is continuing at the Sunshine Plaza, with the first level of the Kmart car park opened last week, along with the next level of the Myer rooftop carpark. By October, shoppers will have access to more than 1000 new car parks at the popular shopping precinct. There are around 3500 spaces around the centre at the moment and Sunshine Plaza centre manager Michael Manwaring says another 300 bays will be opening within a month as two new levels of rooftop parking at Myer open up. The paid parking system, which will be ticketless and relies on licence plate recognition, could be implemented in stages from September.

As the region celebrates the 50th anniversary of being called the Sunshine Coast, many people will reflect on their own histories and that of their families. The Family History Centre, which is based at the Sunshine Coast Stake Centre in Forest Glen, is hosting a Family Search – Discovery Day on August 5 from 10am to 4pm to help people trace their family tree. A program called Family Search, which is run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has access to 3.3 billion records and more than 12 billion names and since 1999, more than 150 million people have accessed Family Search.

$220,000 SCULPTURE CAPTURES SPIRIT OF CHILDHOOD

Isla McMahon, 8, with sister Milla, 6, have fun at the iDIDIT! sculpture with the artist and councillors

An eight-tonne sculpture made up of more than 1000 individual pieces of weathering plate steel has been completed in the Sunshine Coast Health Precinct at Oceanside. The impressive six-metre piece features a cartwheeling child and took artist Russell Anderson eight months to construct. Titled iDIDIT! Anderson says the work symbolises the joy of childhood, learning and the importance of play in human development. The $220,000 project was funded by Stockland and is set to become a popular attraction for both locals and visitors to the region, presenting the perfect opportunity for a selfie or fun family photo.

USC STUDENTS GO FOR GOLD There were medals aplenty for the 144 University of the Sunshine Coast athletes who competed in nine sports at the Northern University Games, held in Rockhampton. USC teams won gold in football and futsal, silver in golf and bronze in men’s and women’s touch football, women’s volleyball, mixed netball and golf. Boxing champ Mikey Carter, 24, of Sippy Downs, was a member of both the Mikey Carter (left) and Jason Myers with their medals men’s football and futsal teams. Carter says bringing home two gold medals from last week’s games was an “awesome” way to celebrate the completion of his psychology studies.

700 RIDERS THERAPY SERVICES RECEIVE A BOOST Sunshine Coast children and young people are getting a major boost in therapy services well ahead of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) which is expected to roll out in the region from January 2019. The Children’s Therapy Centre recently opened a new venue in Kawana Waters, offering individual and group therapy to children with developmental delays, disabilities and health conditions. Children’s Therapy Centre CEO Debbie Blumel says the not-for-profit centre is already providing services to NDIS clients who have moved to the Sunshine Coast from interstate.

Velothon Sunshine Coast organisers are celebrating a successful inaugural event, which saw more than 700 riders from around the world tackle hundreds of kilometres of riding across the three-day event. This was the first Velothon to be held in the southern hemisphere and the final stage on day three saw riders tackle the 152-kilometre Coastal Stage from Novotel Twin Waters, to the Velothon Clubhouse at Cotton Tree Park in Maroochydore. Victorian Sean Vintin was the overall men’s winner, while the women’s title went to Townsville resident Rachel Effeney. Entries for next year’s event, which will run from July 12 to 15, will open on September 21.

omen’s netball has been in the spotlight recently, but Sunshine Coast volleyballer Caitlin Bettenay says volleyball has a lot going for it and would love to see the same status given to the sport in Australia as it receives overseas. “It’s huge overseas,” she says. “You say you play volleyball in any other country and people go wow, that’s awesome. I sign autographs and jerseys, phones and iPads in Thailand. I was like, are you sure you want me to do this, I’m just this little girl from the Sunshine Coast? Over there you’re a big sporting star. It’s huge in the US, huge in Asia, massive in Europe, beach volleyball is huge in Germany and Brazil. I’m waiting for it to catch up and get some recognition in Australia. The Federation is doing everything it can.” While she’s now based in the US, My Weekly Preview caught up with Bettenay when she was back on the Coast recently to train at Mooloolaba Beach for the FIVB U21 World Beach Volleyball Championships in Nanjing, China last week. “Volleyball attracts both genders, it’s a really aggressive game,” she says. “Guys get their fill, they can hit the ball as hard as they want. It’s also a really safe sport in terms of injuries. We’re getting a lot of people from rugby and AFL changing to volleyball because it’s so safe, there’s no physical contact, no concussions, it’s not as dangerous. The only injuries you get are overuse injuries or maybe an ankle injury. It’s really fast-paced and you have to be intelligent and smart to play. You have to use your physique as well as your head.” Bettenay grew up in Caloundra and Coolum and went to Mountain Creek High, where teachers Timothy Wilson and Andrew Denny spotted her talent. “I started indoor volleyball when I was 14,” she says. “I was into athletics and high jump and the volleyball coach at school said you can jump, why don’t you try volleyball? I found it was perfect for my physique.” Six months later Bettenay was recruited to play state volleyball in Brisbane and was accepted by the Queensland Academy of Sport. It took a great deal of dedication to keep up her rigorous training schedule while completing high school, but the hard work paid off. “My parents and grandparents took me to Brisbane for training three times a week and I got home at midnight and had to go to school at 7.30 the next day. School finished at 1pm, I left to go to Brisbane at 2pm to train for two or three hours and then we’d drive back. I’d do my homework and assignments in the car – it became my office.” While Bettenay has been representing Australia in indoor

Caitlin Bettenay training at Mooloolaba Beach in June volleyball in her age group since she was 15, she first began representing Australia in beach volleyball at 17 and it quickly became her passion. “I went to the Australian National Championships with other girls my age and I kept falling in love with the beach volleyball and found it fitted me really well. I loved how challenging it was, just two people on the court and there’s no easy way out, you win together and you lose together. “I prefer beach volleyball because it’s more challenging mentally. I love being outside in the sun and sand, you get to go to really good places, there’s a good atmosphere and really good people.” After graduating from high school, Bettenay was offered a number of sporting scholarships to US universities and chose Portland State University in Oregon, where she’s completing a degree in physiotherapy on an indoor volleyball scholarship

worth tens of thousands of dollars. “I wasn’t really sure I wanted to go to the US, there was a lot of pull for me to join the Australian national program in Adelaide. I didn’t feel like that was what I wanted to do because once you move there, that’s it. I felt like I moved there that’s where I’m going to be living for the next 10 years of my life. I wanted to have more life experience. “I’ve just finished my first year [at university] and I’m going into my second year. It’s pretty cool, I’m training full-time and sitting in lectures and getting my whole university degree paid for. The season is really long – we leave on a Wednesday morning, travel, play Thursday night, travel Friday to another state, play Saturday night, come back Sunday and go to lectures on Monday and Tuesday and then we’re back on the road again. I miss a lot of uni and have to be really diligent and catch up. It’s challenging but it’s really good. I want to be pushed and challenged and made into the best I can be.” While Bettenay misses her family and the Sunshine Coast beaches, she’s enjoying life in Oregon and saw snow for the first time last winter. “I’m in a pretty politically active state,” she says. “Portland is very liberal and they’re very vocal about what they believe in. There’s protests almost every week. As an athlete, you just put your head down and focus on what you have to do.” Bettenay credits much of her success to the support of her family, who live in Coolum – Bettenay’s 16-year-old brother also plays volleyball and is an under 15s Queensland coach. “They’re proud of me, they’re very determined to see me achieve my goals. They’ve been a really amazing support for me. They’ll do anything to help me get better. They’ve sacrificed so much for me. What 17-year-old girl moves across the other side of the world to study? They’re amazing.” Her ultimate goal is the Olympics – indoor volleyball at the 2020 Olympics and beach volleyball at the 2024 Olympics but for now, she’s looking forward to her next international event, the Beach Volleyball World Tour at Manly Beach in Sydney in November. She runs GoFundMe campaigns to raise money for all her international competitions and is seeking support. “At a junior level we are self-funded. It hasn’t got a high enough profile yet. I’m trying to raise awareness and raise the profile of the sport. If anyone can get on board and help us achieve our dreams, we do it for the love of the game. We’re women in sport and we go to the Olympics, but netball gets all the funding. It would be great to give some of that funding to volleyball, it’s the second most played sport in the world after soccer and it’s a very gender equal sport.”

YOUNG SCIENCE ENTHUSIAST IS LONDON BOUND Olivia Lindsay has been chosen from 2000 applicants to attend a youth science forum in London. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

W

hen Olivia Lindsay was 15 years old, she watched a dear friend undergo invasive surgery and an intense recovery and healing process that changed the course of his life. Now, the 17-year-old Immanuel Lutheran College student is gearing up for the trip of a lifetime and the opportunity to bring her thoughts on reducing the need for invasive surgery to the global science community. Olivia, a Buderim resident, is one of just four Queenslanders to be endorsed by the National Youth Science Forum in Canberra to go to the International Youth Science Forum in London, July 26 to August 9. Around 2000 applications were received for the NYSF, of which only 200 applicants were successful. From there, only the best of the best are chosen to attend the international forum, which only accepts 500 young people from around the world each year. What makes Olivia’s success even more amazing is that she missed the deadline to apply for the NYSF, but pulled out all stops to ensure she could still apply to be considered for the London trip. The school captain, who wants to go on to

study medicine at either the University of Queensland or the University of the Sunshine Coast after graduation, says she is still pinching herself that her determination has paid off and she made it in. “I see this forum as the culmination of all things science and the place to go if you have big scientist dreams. I believe the medical field hasn’t ventured far enough into looking

Ord Minnett - Sunshine Coast

at ways to reduce the need for invasive surgery,” she says. “After seeing what my friend went through, the effects of such surgery and how much the recovery takes out of your life, especially if you love sports and can’t do other things that you love anymore, I believe more can be done and I look forward to kickstarting this at the forum.” The year 12 student will leave on July 23 to spend a month in Europe visiting renowned locations like Oxford University, Rolls Royce, the Cambridge University Hospital, the Imperial College’s centre for regenerative medicine, the CERN Hadron Collider in Switzerland and France’s Cite des Sciences, as well as hear from prominent researchers and scientists who are leaders in their fields. “It’s getting really exciting now. I am looking forward to meeting new people, forming networks and bouncing ideas off other people,” she says. Olivia will be in fine company, with the international forum attracting the interest and support of leading figures in the world of science and politics over its 59 years. These include Nobel Laureates in Sir John Cockroft, Sir Lawrence Bragg, Sir Joseph Rotblat and Lord Porter and former Prime Minister

Margaret Thatcher, who paid two visits to the science forum. But the experience of a lifetime does not come cheap. The program costs $11,000 and Olivia says she has received support from the Rotary and Lions clubs as well as from her school community. She has set up a GoFundMe page for the community to support her journey and allow her to access some of the optional extras like going to a show in West End, visiting Stonehenge and Buckingham Palace.

FAST facts • The underlying theme at LIYSF 2017 will be Science – Making Life Better • This is the 59th year of the LIYSF • The event attracts 500 of the world’s leading young scientists aged 16–21 years old from more than 70 participating countries. • The event is held at Imperial College London and The Royal Geographical Society – with day visits to other leading UK research centres and universities, including Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

BUSINESS & FINANCE

Chris Harris, Ord Minnett Buderim.

SNAPSHOT OF THE FINANCIAL YEAR 2017

E

quities took on the mantle of best-returning asset class. In particular, global equities have led the surge, mainly in Asia and Europe (excluding the UK). The Australian market has lagged, but gains across the financials, materials and utilities sectors have still helped the local index post high single-digit percentage returns. The best-performing sector was materials. This was due to a 16 per cent rise in the iron ore price in the past year, and more stability in China’s economy. Gains, too, in the other heavyweight sector, financials (including banks), helped secure a rise in the S&P/ASX 200 Index overall. Other themes that were prominent in the year included: 1) the rise in electricity and gas prices, which benefited the utilities sector;

2) a ‘global over local’ growth theme, which meant materials and the healthcare sector did well; 3) the rollout of the NBN and a more competitive landscape that led to a decline in the telecommunications sector; and 4) stretched valuations in the property sector, including limited yield attractiveness, which meant property trusts struggled. Looking ahead, we continue to expect equities to outperform defensive assets such as fixed income and cash, although our view is that global equities should continue to outpace local equities. For Australian equities, we see the market trading between our bear and base cases, and therefore expect investors to accumulate on the dips. In our base case the S&P/ASX 200 Index will be trading around 5800 over the next few months. A more bullish scenario could mean the index will reach 6300, but this would require more earnings momentum driven by iron ore prices recovering back towards $US80 a tonne, pressures on the banks easing, and tailwinds if the Australian dollar breaks below its recent trading range of $US0.72–0.78.

HOME LOAN LENDING RISES Home loan demand is increasing and Australian Bureau of Statistics figures show growth throughout the month of May. The data shows that 54,061 loans were approved in May, which is one per cent up from April. The Housing Industry Association’s principal economist Tim Reardon says first-home buyers are racing back into the market, according to housing finance data. “We have seen significant growth in lending to first-home buyers in many parts of the country during the month, which has coincided with an increase in lending for new homes,’’ Reardon says. “This is likely to be due to the ongoing uptake of apartments that have come onto the market this year.

ISUZU D-MAX

“Lending figures also show that the amount that first-home buyers are borrowing has remained relatively flat over the past year. An increase in first-home buyers in the market is always welcome and we hope that this improvement can be sustained.” Reardon says the data also shows growth in lending to new home buyers more broadly. In Queensland there was a 28 per cent increase for the month and a 14.6 per cent increase for the overall quarter. “Of interest, and an issue to monitor in the future, is the reduction in lending for investment properties for the second month in a row. This could be as a result of the APRA restrictions that were announced at the end of March impacting on the confidence of investors.”

MY OPINION

CRAZY CAT CAFE CAPERS

VISITORS FLOCK TO OUR SHORES

Sami Muirhead’s visions of shopping in Brisbane are curtailed when her daughter convinces her to visit a cat cafe.

Simon Latchford says promotion of the Sunshine Coast across multiple platforms is paying off, with visitor numbers continuing to increase.

T

here’s a new cafe in Brisbane that has cat lovers lining up and others outraged. The Cat Cuddle Cafe is exactly what the name states: a cafe where the coffee set can sip a cat-a-cino or a cat-white and then enter a big cage and cuddle as many of the felines as they can lay their paws on. Why? Because so many people love cats but do not have a pet cat. Last week my besty and I took our daughters to the big smoke for the weekend. I had visions of shopping until we dropped at Zara and H & M. Anyway, my six-year-old daughter and her 10-year-old friend begged and pleaded with us to take them to the cat cafe. The first one started in Korea and they are taking off around the world. So with some trepidation we packed up and entered the cat lover’s lair. It smells of cat. It has every item you could possibly imagine for sale with a cat on it, from tea cups to calendars. There were 19 rescue cats spotted all over the one rectangular room. They were under chairs, overhead, hiding behind cat beds and in front of baskets. The problem was, 18 of them were fast asleep and you are not allowed to pat the sleeping ones. So we had two excited little girls who were fighting for the attention of this one aloof cat hoping to play with it, along with all the other customers in the cafe. This is the sad state of affairs my life has amounted to. Once upon a time, I would have spent Sundays at a white restaurant at

Noosa looking at the blue water. Not anymore. I am the crazy cat mum hanging out with the crazy cat kid at the crazy cat cafe. After a very long hour watching the children trying to get the one bored cat to play, we hit the road to return to the Coast. And that is when my daughter’s friend’s face puffed up as if a hundred bees had stung her. Then came the watering and red eyes and the itch. She was allergic to cats. Big time. We found a pharmacy in our panic and bought some allergy tablets. Our friend was given the pill in the back seat of my car and

“I am the crazy cat mum hanging out with the crazy cat kid” we kept on driving, thinking the medication would fix our problems. But her swelling was getting worse by the minute. We decided we had better head to the hospital and when the 10-year-old heard the H word, she confessed she had not swallowed the medication because she did not want to go to school the next day and was hoping to stay home sick. I had to stifle my laugh. We made it home, the swelling subsided and everyone lived to tell the tale of the epic cat trip. Both girls want to go again. Suddenly the fidget spinner phase is looking better by the minute.

T

he first half of the year has been busy for tourism operators as we continue to see steady increases in domestic and international visitors. Our regional tourism organisation, Visit Sunshine Coast (VSC) continues to promote the entire Sunshine Coast region through a variety of activities. This often involves shining the spotlight on a particular event, destination or area of interest for our visitors, such as nature or food. In marketing ourselves as a food tourism destination, VSC in partnership with Sunshine Coast Council and Food and Agribusiness Network, was on show to more than 90,000 people during the annual Regional Flavours event at Brisbane’s South Bank last weekend. I was personally handing out Sunshine Coast strawberries to visitors and the response to our Flavours of the Sunshine Coast regional presence, with 10 local food and beverage companies, was outstanding. Our local celebrity chef Peter Wolfe was a huge success as he created Sunshine Coast dishes for the Taste of Queensland stage. As locals, I think we understand how lucky we are to have incredibly fresh produce and seafood in our own backyard and we also know from Tourism Australia’s research how highly it rates for people to visit a region for the quality of the food. To highlight trawler-to-plate as a key feature, we have partnered with Mooloolaba Business and Tourism to create new images

and a television advertisement to air from this weekend in the surrounding drive market. As an extension of our Come to Life campaign style, it also includes family fun on Mooloolaba Beach, swimming with humpback whales, Sea Life’s seals and Mooloolaba Triathlon as a major event. With a move towards more digital promotion, we still recognise television as a powerful way to reach people. In addition to television commercials, we have hosted national breakfast programs Today and Sunrise this year, with broadcasts beamed across the country from Caloundra, Cotton Tree, Coolum, Eumundi and Palmwoods. Our New Zealand campaign, Sunshine by Lunchtime, run in conjunction with Air New Zealand and Tourism and Events Queensland over the past months, has assisted to ensure the direct flights are bringing across an influx of Kiwi visitors. Taking advantage of the direct service, our Business Events Sunshine Coast (BESC) team has this week welcomed a group of top New Zealand event planners to the region who have toured the region looking at venue offerings to increase future business. The coming months do not look like slowing down with the events and conferences BESC has won for the region, including the Australian Society of Travel Writers AGM (August), the Australian Events Awards (September) and the Australian Cruise Association Annual Conference and AGM (September).

FROM THE MAYOR

A symbolic moringa tree is now growing in the grounds of the Caloundra Community Centre following the launch of the Sunshine Coast Multicultural Action Plan on Tuesday. The moringa is one of the world’s most important food security plants with its young seed pods and leaves used as vegetables. It can also be used for water purification and hand washing, and is sometimes used in herbal medicine. The moringa is considered a “global tree” and its presence at Caloundra symbolises the intent of the Multicultural Action Plan “to recognise, respect and embrace diverse cultures, and to strive to strengthen the resilience and prosperity of our multicultural Sunshine Coast”. The regional plan co-ordinates, builds relationships and strengthens networks and partnerships between council, sector agencies and community groups. Importantly, it demonstrates that by working together, we will ensure we build and support an even stronger Sunshine Coast community – one that is healthy, smart and creative. Our thanks go to everyone who helped in the creation of the Multicultural Action Plan. Mark Jamieson Mayor Sunshine Coast Council

NEW EXHIBITION OPENS An exhibition that celebrates the spirit of our region is now open at the USC Art Gallery to help us commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast. From The Mountains To The Sea: Sunshine Coast Stories has brought together objects, artworks and memorabilia that spans from ancient times through to the present day. It is a collaboration between council and USC with funding from the Heritage Levy. Museum and heritage organisations across the region have been integral in the development of the exhibition and generous in making objects available on loan. As part of the exhibition, local filmmaker Chris Peckham was commissioned to create a film that celebrates creativity in the region. The USC Art Gallery is located at USC’s main campus on Sippy Downs Drive, Sippy Downs. It is open free to the public from 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday and closed Sundays and public holidays.

MOOLOOLABA FORESHORE MOVES FORWARD The Mooloolaba foreshore area has moved into its next phase with council unveiling plans for a revitalised Mooloolaba foreshore and esplanade precinct, part of the Place Making Mooloolaba Master Plan. More than 6200 square metres of Mooloolaba foreshore parkland will eventually return to community use. A kiosk, outdoor gym, new amenities building, shaded picnic and barbecue facilities, a modern adventure playground and spacious grassy areas are just some of the features we have to look forward to. Initially the former northern Mooloolaba caravan park site will be used as a temporary car park to provide alternative parking options while the Brisbane Road development is underway. Once completed, the Brisbane Road car park will free up the foreshore area for community use.

The natural aspects of Mooloolaba we all know and love will be retained and there will be an increase in beachfront public parkland. This will allow us to create better public spaces, including 40 per cent more public parkland, 2.4 kilometres of enhanced waterfront pathways and improved spaces for sporting and entertainment events. The design focuses on creating a space for active lifestyles, including bikeways, pathways, fitness equipment and expansive lawn areas. Public art will also be a feature in play areas, etched pathways and furniture, and an entry statement. Concept designs for the foreshore revitalisation are available for the community to view on council’s website.

GET SLAMMED BY POETRY

Australian Poetry Slam royalty is coming to the Sunshine Coast to host workshops with aspiring performers. National champion Zohab Zee Khan will mentor young up-and-comers alongside award-winning Sunshine Coast slam poet Gabriella Salmon. The first workshop will be held as part of a slam poetry and music performance event at Yandina’s The Shared on July 28. The event includes a two-hour workshop, which will help prepare emerging performers if they wish to compete at the region’s first official Sunshine Coast Poetry Slam Championships on August 12. The championships will be held as part of the second annual Sunshine Coast

REMINISCE WITH DULCET TUNES International Readers and Writers Festival (SCIRWF) and are an official part of the 10-heat Queensland Slam Poetry Festival. SCIRWF founder and artistic director Wendy O’Hanlon says it is “a real coup” for the festival to host an official heat of the state championships. “There were a number of other events in Queensland who were hoping to be slotted in to the state championships, but I think my enthusiasm for spoken word/slam poetry got our festival over the line,” she says. “Spoken word or slam poetry is a fantastic way for emerging writers to not only express themselves but also to gain confidence in standing on a stage and performing in public. Slam poetry, particularly, is a great avenue for younger writers to feel confident in experimenting with writing.” The July 28 workshop has 20 free places for students, who must register at enjoy@sunshinecoastreadersand writersfestival.com by July 24. Spectators can head to The Shared from 6pm to see soulful music by born-and-bred North Arm musician Jordan Solomon and performances by Zee Khan and Salmon. Tickets are $25 and available from sunshinecoastreaders andwritersfestival.com.

What’s On

There is one khaki-clad trio that is synonymous with wartime entertainment – The Andrews Sisters. Patty, Maxene and LaVerne found themselves in high demand in the 1940s and earned a staggering $20,000 a week from their performances, radio work and appearances in 17 Hollywood movies.

GET DUSTY It’s a show that has been performed more than 100 times in the past five years, but Dustier Than Ever never ceases to impress. The show has the permission of the late Slim Dusty’s wife Joy McKean and comes to life through the talents of The Chris Cook Band, a popular country three-piece based in northern New South Wales. Chris Cook, who wrote three songs recorded by Dusty, plays fast and furious guitar, highly polished bluegrass banjo and energetic country fiddle, and is accompanied by a very able double bass player who also sings and a drummer/ percussionist. The songs and music are accompanied by Cook’s encyclopaedic knowledge of

HELPING TO HEAL A local initiative will offer a dedicated exercise space to assist Sunshine Coast cancer patients.

S

unshine Coast residents undergoing cancer treatment may soon have access to an integrated exercise program in what will be a first for Queensland. Exercise physiologist Curtis Forbes has spearheaded the initiative, which combines a safe and regular exercise space specifically for patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiation and immunotherapy. It is hoped the program will be funded by the 2017 Waterlife event, which is being held on Lake Kawana in August.

Waterlife is an outrigging community and corporate event, which raises funds for Sunshine Coast charities Wishlist, endED and No Limits Adaptive Paddling. Wishlist CEO Lisa Rowe says the organisation’s focus this year will be on raising $25,000 for the equipment required for Forbes’ exercise physiology service. Forbes says, “I approached our hospital foundation Wishlist in the hopes of receiving funding for specialised equipment for this service at the Adem Crosby Centre inside the new Sunshine Coast University

Hospital. Little did I know, my application would become the major cause of the 2017 Waterlife.’’ A growing body of research has linked enhanced patient outcomes with exercise during cancer treatment. “It can help manage many of the common side-effects of treatment, speed up their return to usual activities, improve quality of life, and some research has shown that it can reduce the risk of cancer returning,’’ Forbes says. “Over many years of working in cancer care, I’ve assisted patients to build or maintain their capacity to swim, surf, and play golf and lawn bowls.” Physical activity also plays a role in the prevention of cancers including colorectal, breast and endometrial. There is also emerging evidence associated with reduced risk of other cancers such as

prostate, lung and ovarian cancer, Forbes adds. “Just this year alone, it is estimated that the risk of an individual being diagnosed with cancer by their 85th birthday will be one in two. “Symbolically, Waterlife represents a fantastic opportunity for those who are fortunately enjoying good health and quality of life to catch up on any lost opportunities to exercise as well as having a splash and a laugh on a beautiful Sunshine Coast Saturday.” Teams of five can enter the outrigging event at waterlife.org.au. It will be held on August 19.

FAST facts • An estimated 134,174 new cancer cases will be diagnosed nationally this year. • According to the ABS, more than 20,000 women and 27,000 men will die from cancer in 2017. • About 60-70 per cent of cancer patients do not meet aerobic exercise guidelines. • About 80-90 per cent do not meet resistance exercise guidelines. • Research has shown that inactivity may increase rates of recurrence for several cancers and may have an effect on survival.

Medical Journal recommends Chiropractic as first means of treating back pain. Your Medical Doctor and your Chiropractor both want the same thing when you are injured: to help you heal as quickly as possible and to get back on with your life. The Journal of the American Medical Association now recommends Chiropractic as a first means of treating back pain. This recommendation have been

made following a recent study in the Medical journal “Spine”. The study involved people suffering with low back pain who received standard medical care. Half of the people were also received Chiropractic care. 73% of those receiving Chiropractic care reported that their pain was gone compared to just 17% of those who didn’t receive the Chiropractic care.

STAGGERING RESULTS FOR NEW FLU DRUG

TOP

6

Imagine if you could reach for a nasal spray and reduce your raging winter flu to a slight sniffle and a mild cough. It’s a scenario that may no longer be pure fantasy. Australian and international scientists have developed a prototype drug that’s had an incredible effect on sickness levels in mice infected with cold and flu viruses. “With this test drug, we were able to almost abolish the load of the virus in the lung tissue, compared to an uninfected control,” says one of the drug’s developers, Dr Stavros Selemidis, from Melbourne’s RMIT University.“It was a staggering reduction of over 90 per cent in the viral load, or burden, of the virus. Lung inflammation was down by over 80 per cent.” The scientists’ work has just been published in the prestigious scientific and medical journal Nature Communications. Tests on human cells have been equally promising, leaving Selemidis and his colleagues excited about what lies ahead. The drug was developed after the scientists from universities in Australia, the US and Ireland identified a crucial protein that’s activated when cells become infected with a virus. The protein – Nox2 oxidase – suppresses the body’s immune response to infection, allowing the virus to take hold and prosper. “Essentially this protein, when activated by a virus, dampens the ability of the immune system to clear that virus,” Selemidis says. “This drug blocks that protein, putting the host in a better position to clear it.” Selemidis says much work remains to be done to discover the drug’s full potential. -AAP

TIPS FOR BEATING THE COMMON COLD The health gurus at Health Matters share the best natural ways to boost your immune system during flu season.

1. WATER Hydration is vital at all times, of course, but during a cold, it can be extra helpful. Up your water intake, to keep hydrated in case of a high temperature, while flushing toxins from your system.

2. MINT LEAVES Blend mint with coconut oil to create a natural vapour rub.

3. SLEEP Getting to bed early while under the weather can speed up the convalescence no end. Close the book, turn off the TV, the laptop, the light and snuggle down for the night.

4. FRUIT You may not have much of an appetite when suffering from a cold, so fruit is a perfect way to snack yourself well. Fruit gives the body a massive injection of vitamins, which will support the body in fighting off viruses. Berries are jampacked full of antioxidants.

5. PROBIOTIC YOGHURT Natural yogurt with live cultures will support your immune system as it clears bacteria from your body.

ROBOTIC SURGERY IS NOW ON THE SUNSHINE COAST. The da Vinci ® Xi Surgical Robot System - previously only available in Brisbane - is now conveniently available here at Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital (SCUPH). As recently seen on the ABC TV’s 7.30 program, the robot allows a range of minimally invasive surgical procedures to be conducted, giving Sunshine Coast men suffering from prostate cancer local access to the most advanced treatment available. The revolutionary new $3.5 million da Vinci Xi robot system provides the surgeon with a 3D view of the prostate, which is magnified up to ten times. This enables your surgeon to perform very complex manoeuvres with excellent vision and control.

The da Vinci System has brought minimally invasive surgery to more than 3 million patients worldwide.

RADIANT SKIN WITHOUT THE DOWNTIME

AFTER

• Customized treatment to precisely target skin damage • Improvement in the appearance of tone, texture and fine lines • Reduces pore size and increases elasticity and glow • Ablative laser results with non-ablative downtime

Operations are performed using keyhole surgery through a small incision in your lower abdomen. The robotic arms, which hold various small instruments, are inserted through these incisions. The 3D vision and smaller instruments used allow the surgeon to more precisely operate in confined areas such as the pelvis while also eliminating the need for larger

incisions. The surgical instruments are manipulated as an extension of the surgeon’s hands to complete the operation. da Vinci surgery is a minimally invasive surgical option offering many potential benefits that may include a shorter stay in hospital, less pain and less risk of infection. Oliver Steele, Hospital CEO, is delighted that the da Vinci Xi Surgical System is now available to patients and adds to the hospital’s existing capabilities in Urological services including green light laser and ESWL (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy). “We are at the forefront of the next frontier for men’s health, right here on the Sunshine Coast,” he said. “We’re excited by this and have invested $3.5M into this new technology.” “In particular, the robot is key to expanding urological services at the hospital with urologists welcoming the availability of the technology for prostate cancer patients who previously had to travel to Brisbane for this surgery.” To find out more talk to your GP, call 07 5390 6000 or visit the website: sunshinecoastuniversityprivate.com.au

TIPS FOR HEALTHY SKIN

G

ood skin care – including the right amount of sun protection – can keep your skin healthy for years to come. Are you worried about the changes seen on your skin? Good skin care and healthy lifestyle choices can help delay the natural ageing process and prevent various skin problems including skin cancers. Doctor Christina Sander from Central Dermatology Clinic Sunshine Coast shares her best skin tips.

1. PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE SUN One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles,

age spots and other skin problems, as well as skin cancer. But how much protection is needed and healthy? There is an ongoing debate about the appropriate level of UV protection to balance the skin cancer risk and vitamin D deficiency. For the best sun protection: • Use sunscreen daily for your face – use a broad-spectrum (UVA and UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 50+. BB creams, mineral make-ups and foundations with SPF have the added benefit of additionally reflecting visible light and heat rays, keeping your skin even more protected. Apply sunscreen generously, and reapply every four hours, or more often if you’re swimming or perspiring. • Wear protective clothing – cover your skin with long-sleeved shirts, long pants and wide-brimmed hats. Remember to include your neck and chest, as these areas often are forgotten.

3. EAT HEALTHY

2. DON’T SMOKE

4. TREAT YOUR SKIN GENTLY

Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles. Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of skin, which decreases blood flow. This depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important to skin health. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin – the fibres that give your skin strength and elasticity.

Daily cleansing and shaving can take a toll on your skin. To keep it gentle: • Limit bath time as hot water and long showers or baths remove protective oils from your skin. • Avoid soaps as they can strip protective layers from your skin. Instead, choose mild soap-free cleansers. • Shave carefully to protect and lubricate

Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. Have plenty of water to drink to avoid dehydrated skin. The association between diet and acne isn’t clear, but some research suggests that a diet rich in dairy, saturated fats and processed or refined carbohydrates will contribute to breakouts.

your skin, apply shaving cream, lotion or gel before shaving. Shave in the direction the hair grows, not against it. • Moisturise dry skin. If your skin is dry, use a moisturiser that suits your skin type. For daily use, consider a moisturiser or BB cream that contains SPF. Don’t use plain oils on your skin as they will just leave a film on your skin which won’t increase hydration. Instead, choose a moisturising cream or lotion with natural ingredients.

5. MANAGE STRESS Uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin – and a healthy state of mind – take steps to manage your stress. Set reasonable limits, scale back your to-do list and make time to do the things you enjoy. The results might be more dramatic than you expect. Allow plenty of sleep for healthy and glowing skin.

DID YOU KNOW? • Your skin is your body’s largest organ. • The average human’s skin, if it was stretched out, would cover two square metres. • Your skin takes up about 15 per cent of your total body weight.

Is pain, weight, infertility, fatigue or disease affecting your life quality? Statistics show 1 in 20 Australians are affected by autoimmune disease. Could you be at risk? We hear the word ‘epidemic’ a lot in terms of health and we know that as a global population we are battling with pain, fatigue, disease, weight and obesity. But what if there’s more going on beneath these surface symptoms? An autoimmune disease can develop in any system of the body. The symptoms can be varied or even random, ranging from headaches, aches and pains, constant infections and flus, chronic fatigue, irritable bowels, infertility, poor memory or physical signs such as weight gain or hair loss. The most commonly diagnosed autoimmune diseases are thyroid issues such as Hashimoto’s or Graves’ disease, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and type I diabetes. Known risk factors are in some part genetic, though may be exacerbated by a hyperactive immune system, triggered by chemical, food or environment toxins, combined with stress, inflammation, or virus. There are other common risk factors that are completely preventable, such as vitamin and mineral deficiency, or an incorrect diet for your body type and ancestry.

Autoimmune disease is occurring more often in women, affecting 1 in 20 people, and sufferers are increasingly developing multiple diseases. Focusing on the underlying commonality between your symptoms and a thorough investigation of what your triggers may be, we are able to stop the progression of an autoimmune disease before it’s too late, and

reduce multiple disease processes. Autoimmune disease does not have to be a life sentence. Our integrative practitioners conduct comprehensive testing and screening for food sensitivities, check for bacterial or viral pathogens and determine nutritional deficiencies, along with hormone levels. Correct identification helps to remove the current triggers, resolving your symptoms quickly, and stabilising the disease. Don’t let it rule your health for the rest of your life.

HOW TO GET MORE OUT OF YOUR FEET

The government is staring down angry radiologists, who fear patients will soon be forced to pay more for scans used to diagnose some of the most common forms of cancer if the Medicare rebate freeze isn’t thawed. Last week, specialists who are fuming at what they consider a broken promise by the Federal Government, hit surgeries in marginal seats across the country with a grassroots political campaign. In its May budget, the Turnbull Government pledged to lift the freeze on targeted radiology and diagnostic imaging services in 2020. But the freeze will be lifted only on seven per cent of radiology items listed on the Medicare Benefits Schedule, which the sector argues does not come close to what’s needed to detect and treat cancer. Mammograms and a number of CT scans will be indexed under the plan but X-rays, MRIs, PETs and ultrasounds for breast, lung, ovarian and testicular cancer will not. -AAP

O

ur feet are the foundation of our bodies – the link between us and the ground we stand and walk on. We may not think about our feet when they are working well. However, when we run into problems with our feet this can have a major effect on our quality of life, potentially causing issues with the hips, spine, lower back, shoulders and neck. Dan Everson from Dan Everson Podiatry shares his advice on how to treat your feet with care.

Swapping table sugar for fruit-derived sugar may be a healthier option when watching your waistline. Researchers from the University of Canberra’s Health Research Institute examined the short-term and long-term effects of swapping sucrose or glucose for fructose, the sugar found in many fruits, vegetables and honey. The research, which has been published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found blood glucose and insulin levels were lower after consuming food or drink that contained fructose instead of sucrose or glucose. The reduction in blood glucose was far greater in people who were overweight or had diabetes than in those people with normal blood glucose levels.

2. SHOE SIZING Considering shoe sizes vary across brands, and feet size can change across our lifespan, it is best to get your feet professionally measured and try on the larger and smaller size when buying shoes.

3. DON’T IGNORE FOOT PAIN If your feet do start to hurt, don’t ignore it. Seek professional help before that pain may become a bigger health concern.

1. WASH YOUR FEET PROPERLY

4. LIMBER UP

It’s important to wash your feet using soap and warm water, and avoid extremely hot water as it can dry out the skin. Pay particular attention to drying between the toes to prevent fungal infections.

These exercises will help your feet. Spend five minutes writing the alphabet with pointed toes or roll your feet over a tennis ball. Wiggling your ankles around will also improve blood flow in your legs and feet.

WHAT’S YOUR NEW FINANCIAL RESOLUTION?

J

DOWNSIZE AND UPSIZE AT ONCE

uly is a great time to look forward and to set some new financial year resolutions, especially if you’re getting close to retirement age.

What if there was a way of having it all? Sell the family home, move into a newly built home in a gated community, put cash in your pocket and have access to a pool and leisure facilities? Affordable lifestyle communities for over ’50s do exist, and without the expensive exit fees or complicated contracts. It is possible to downsize your home and upsize your lifestyle and your finances at the same time. Talk to the lifestyle advisers at Nature’s Edge Buderim, where you can live in a secure, gated community in a brand new, eco-friendly, architect designed home, without the exit fees. A new stage of homes has just been released, so pop in for a look.

CASH UP, NOT OUT If you keep up with the national news or watch the ABC, you probably heard last month’s story in which a joint Four Corners and Fairfax Media investigation shone the spotlight on the retirement village industry. The investigation claimed older Australians who choose to live in a retirement village are subjected to complex contracts and high exit fees. One thing many do not know is that not all retirement villages are created equal. That’s because some operators in the over ’50s independent living sector offer homes within a village environment – complete with landscaped common gardens and leisure facilities – but without the expensive exit fees.

COSTS OF LIVING With the cost of living rising, those over 50 need to consider what is needed to afford a comfortable retirement. The Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia estimates a couple who

GOVERNMENT REFORM

currently owns their own home and wants a modest lifestyle when retiring at 65 will need $668 a week. A single female will need $465 a week. While selling the family home can be a challenging prospect, it can also be an opportunity.

Nature’s Edge Buderim, 25 Owen Creek Road, Forest Glen. Sales office is open Monday to Friday 9am-5pm, Saturday, 10am-4pm, Sunday, 10am-3pm. Phone 1800 218 898, email info@ naturesedgebuderim.com.au or visit naturesedgebuderim.com.au.

Retirement village reforms are high on the agenda for the Queensland Governemnt, which has vowed to clean up some costly and complex contracts befuddling a percentage of the state’s seniors. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has declared proposed new laws will be introduced immediately into state parliament with a view to having the legislation passed by year’s end. Among the changes will be simplified contracts, fees and charges declared up-front, fairer exit fees and enforceable behaviour standards for village operators. The proposed laws come after an 18-month consultation, which coincided with a Four Corners and Fairfax Media investigation. Housing Minister Mick de Brenni says the changes will be beneficial. “Seniors across Queensland have been struggling to understand the contracts they sign when they enter a retirement village,” he says. “Some of them are 400 pages thick.” But the Liberal National Party has accused the government of reviewing rather than implementing reforms – conducted when they were last in government – that were about to be rolled out just prior to the 2015 election.

HALCYON BUCKING THE DOWNSIZING TREND

eading over 50s developer Halcyon is bucking the downsizing trend on the Sunshine Coast by embracing the great outdoors with its latest homes at Halcyon Lakeside. Of the 40 homes in the Lifestyle Release, there are 15 lakefront homes and 13 with an extended alfresco area to take advantage of the desirable lifestyle in the booming coastal township of Bli Bli. All homes in this release embrace the active lifestyle of Halcyon Lakeside, and benefit from being the closest homes to the near-completed $5 million Recreation Club. Halcyon Lakeside project director Chris Carley says the alfresco areas pay homage to the great Aussie backyard and breathe new life into outdoor living at Halcyon Lakeside. “The Lifestyle Release at Halcyon Lakeside encompasses a selection of homes with a primary focus on outdoor living,” Carley says. “While some contemporary suburban developments are diminishing the size of backyards, we want to increase the amount of green space within the residential masterplanned community to enhance the lifestyle of residents.” A selection of Lifestyle Release homes come with an

eight-metre deep patio designed as a natural sanctuary at the resident’s doorstep. The outdoor area comes with the option of an outdoor kitchen to create a real entertainer’s paradise. Lifestyle Release homes range in size from 312 square metres to 474 square metres and are priced from $539,000 to $679,000. Construction of the homes will start in October and completed by February 2018, when residents will enjoy the benefits of the Recreation Club, which is due to open in early August. In line with the facilities of an exclusive five-star country club, Halcyon Lakeside and Halcyon Landing at Bli Bli have proven attractive to over 50s buyers as the ideal place to live and invest. The recent suburb report for Bli Bli from Your Investment Property reveals property prices have risen 17.86 per cent in Bli Bli over the last three years. In comparison, prices at Halcyon Landing have beaten that market average by rising 18 per cent over just 2.5 years.

NEW ERA BEGINS FOR EDENLEA After a number of years of planning and construction, EdenLea has finally overcome Buderim’s famous rock and are ready to welcome Sunshine Coast Retirees to drop in and see their new apartment building. EdenLea director David Hawtrey says the new complex has been built adjacent to the current village community centre and pool area, and with the addition of the restaurant and activities centre residents of the two and three-bedroom apartments will have everything close at hand. “Not forgetting of course that Buderim’s shopping and restaurant precinct is only a short walk away,” he says. Each apartment enjoys open-plan living and a spacious feel from the generous nine-foot ceilings. “Inside, you’ll also find a modern kitchen where you’ll enjoy creating a masterpiece or a snack surrounded by Caesarstone benchtops, quality AEG oven and induction cooktop, and your silent Schweigen rangehood,” Hawtrey says. “The ensuite shower area is large enough for a party, and there’s plenty of space for storage as well in the oversized mirrored shaving cabinets. Your guests will also appreciate the large second bathroom which is connected to their bedroom.” Security and safety is always important at EdenLea so

emergency call systems are monitored 24 hours a day and residents are also protected by electric access doors and common area security camera monitoring. A downstairs activities centre houses indoor bowls and table tennis among others and both floors are easily accessible from the modern glass-backed lift which provides a view over the internal gardens as well as pedestrian ramps and stairs to enter from both floors. “If you choose to move to EdenLea you can be confident in their ability to provide a quality retirement lifestyle,” Hawtrey says. “EdenLea is not the largest company operating and managing retirement villages in Australia, but quite likely has the most experience. The company’s founder, Charles Hawtrey, started developing retirement villages here on the Sunshine Coast 50 years ago. EdenLea was developed and is still owned and managed by the same family company.” The two-bedroom display apartment will be open weekday mornings from 10am to 12pm from July 24 to August 4.

For more information, or to arrange to visit the display, contact Bernadette on 5476 8900 or simply drop in and ask one of the team to show you through.

OUR 50TH YEAR

GOLD STRIKES AND PINEAPPLES PICTURE SUNSHINE COAST, SUNSHINE COAST LIBRARIES.

The Gympie gold rush not only saved the Queensland treasury in 1867, it also led to a new town springing up halfway between the goldfields and Brisbane, writes Dot Whittington.

THIS MONTH IN HISTORY

The Cobb’s Camp Hotel in 1880 was midway between Brisbane and Gympie; Cobb’s Camp in 1872 and Blackall Street, Woombye in 1912

T

hings were dire in the colony of Queensland after it separated from New South Wales in 1859. The Bank of Queensland had closed and the government was broke, but then James Nash discovered gold in Gympie and the rush was on. It not only saved the Queensland Treasury but also provided a lucrative business opportunity for Cobb and Co, transporting valuable cargo and miners seeking their fortune. Manager James Rutherford was ready to run a regular coach service as soon as a road could be built, which was in double quick time to answer the call of Gympie gold. By October 1868, coaches were transferring people, goods, mail and gold along the Gympie Road from Brisbane. There were 10 staging depots for weary horses and travellers to rest, and the halfway point was the hill south of Paynter’s Creek which, somewhat obviously, was called Middle Camp. Cobb and Co chose this midway point to build the only overnight accommodation for passengers making the arduous journey between city and gold, and

the first guests stayed on November 12, 1868. The innkeeper, James Costa, was granted a liquor licence in 1870 and it wasn’t long before the Middle Camp Inn and its associated horse stables and yards was renamed Cobb’s Camp Hotel. Settlers began moving into the district and houses of bark or slab or pitsawn timber, cropped up. Among them was Karl Stumpf who used pitsawn beech and split timber to build his family a home at Cobb’s Camp. He took over the liquor licence in 1877. But the business was heading into tough times. In February 1880, a correspondent advised that it had been raining without interruption for the past eight days at Cobb’s Camp, and Gympie Road was exceedingly heavy and almost impassable for wheeled traffic. This, with the gold losing its shine, led Cobb and Co to withdraw its services. But although the gold and the coaches had gone, Cobb’s Camp still had plenty to offer its residents. Frederick Schubert took over the hotel in about 1881, and also bought 64 hectares of land with all the Cobb and Co buildings, including the site where he would build his

Live a colourful life at Aura

own hotel, the Criterion, in 1900. He also built a store and a butchery. A new town was surveyed, much of it on the land Schubert had acquired from Cobb and Co and in 1889, it was time for the name to change. There were Cobb’s Camps in so many parts of Australia, the government decided this settlement north of Brisbane would be called Woombye. It came from the Aboriginal word Wombai or Weembai, the name of the local black myrtle tree, a type of lilly pilly whose timber was perfect for making axe handles. The actual date of this change was given by the Chronicle of July 1948 when it reported: “Another incident recalled is that Monday, 19th July, was the 59th anniversary of the changing of the name to Woombye from Cobb’s Camp. This had been discovered from a family Bible in which the date had been inserted.” By the turn of the century, the little coach stop had a school, stores, churches, school of arts, railway station and a sawmill in addition to its hotel – and a new form of gold. Woombye became the country’s most important pineapple growing area.

Mount Coolum in 1980

Maroochy Shire organised its first Heritage Forum in July 1992. Individuals, historical societies, historians, community groups and businesses nominated 350 places. In 1994, Mount Coolum was listed as the most significant area of Maroochy Shire’s heritage because of its size, shape, geography, geology, history and place in the heart of local legend.

DID YOU KNOW? • Between 1980 and 2003 more than 1000 hectares of cane land in Maroochy Shire were lost to urban development. • After the Cobb and Co coaches stopped running in 1880, the McCallum and Murdocks coach operated between Caboolture and Gympie three times a week. The 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast will be celebrated on August 1, 2017. In the lead-up to the occasion, My Weekly Preview will each week take a look into our region’s past. If you have any historical photos or stories email editorial@myweeklypreview.com.au.

Aura is a vibrant and energetic new city designed to inspire and attract opportunity. It’s a place where world class, contemporary living meets a relaxed Sunshine Coast lifestyle and where commerce, culture and the coast come together for a quality of life that once felt, will never be forgotten.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

I just finished watching the highlight reel from J-Bay where four pro surfers rode the exact same traditional twin finboards. Silky smooth lines that us mere mortals can only dream about. As I type, the contest is into the second round with stand out performances from John John, Fanning, Medina, Slater and Smith. Good waves are on the way and, if it is big, it will be impossible for anyone to get past John John. I had a cool experience last weekend when surrounded by dolphins. Life on the Sunny coast is not too shabby. Not much is happening this weekend, but hopefully I have misread the report. Have a good one.

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 20)

TAURUS (Apr 21-May 21)

GEMINI (May 22-Jun 21)

The stars favour friendships and hobbies, so it’s a wonderful week to indulge in pleasurable leisure activities with like-minded mates. Communication and innovation are also highlighted when you express your creative side.

Avoid getting stuck in a boring old rut – no matter how ‘comfortable’ it is. This week’s sparky planetary patterns encourage you to shake and stir things up, especially on the home front. Plus, when it comes to family are you being way too tentative?

Tried and tested methods won’t work well this week. You need to look at a long-term problem with completely fresh eyes. Then you’ll solve the puzzle and taste success. Emotions and energy levels will fluctuate on Wednesday so pace yourself.

CANCER (Jun 22-Jul 23)

LEO (Jul 24-Aug 23)

VIRGO (Aug 24-Sep 23)

Early in the week, a friend requires your help but avoid being bossy and taking over. Old solutions won’t help – you need to keep up-to-date with new ways of solving problems. On Wednesday, someone makes a cutting comment that annoys you.

With the Sun, Mercury and Mars are all charging through your sign, you’ll go to extremes this week as the planets press your ‘Let’s overdo everything’ button. So your motto is from Mick Jagger “Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.”

Privacy and self-reflection are paramount on Monday, when your motto comes from Kate Bush “There’s an awful lot you learn about yourself when you’re alone.” The pace picks up on Tuesday, as Uranus stimulates your curiosity.

LIBRA (Sep 24-Oct 23)

SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dec 21)

Relationships and group activities will be complicated this week, as family and friends debate a wide range of topics. If you have a problem that’s bothering you, don’t over-think things. Instead, let your intuition be your guide.

Is work going pear-shaped? Don’t point the finger at others! Perhaps you have no-one to blame but yourself? If you are proactive about solving the problem, then you’ll make real progress. But if you sulk, then you’re in for a troublesome week.

This week’s Mercury/Uranus trine favours education and social networking as you connect with friends from faraway. Who knows where your contacts may lead? A close relationship will be tested when you’re told something in confidence.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 20)

AQUARIUS (Jan 21-Feb 19)

PISCES (Feb 20-Mar 20)

Avoid being too brusque with others on Monday. People respect your professional approach but they also appreciate the personal touch. And don’t worry too much about a family situation, as changes could lead to an unexpected solution.

If you are creative and original in the way you post on social media early in the week, then you’ll receive a surprisingly positive response. It’s also time to get circulating within your local community and meet some fresh new faces.

A professional or family relationship looks somewhat strained on Monday, when Saturn stymies conversation and cooperation. Then Mercury shifts into your relationship zone mid-week, when it’s a positive time to re-open the channels of communication .

Solve all the clues and reveal the eight-letter word spelled down the middle of the grid.

THE LAST WORD

LIFE & LOSS The recent passing of two old friends has Richard O’Leary reflecting on the lottery of life.

T

he lottery of life seems such a glib way to refer to our brief existence on this planet, but that phrase can seem terribly appropriate at times. And by lottery I don’t mean one of those big jackpots you get in the United States either; more like when a random draw of a conscription ball has your number on it and you’re off to a war you don’t believe your country should be fighting. In the past few weeks I’ve lost two friends. Neither of them were my best mates, but they were close enough for me to feel the loss, and strip me of the invincibility that cloaked me as a younger man. Now I could say, what are the odds? But the reality is when you’re 45, time starts to catch up with you and the people you grew up with, and others you have met along the way to middle age. The first friend was killed in a cycling accident. He too was 45. A dentist, married with four kids. The newspaper report said he

was a well-respected member of his country New South Wales town. The truth is we hadn’t spoken in years; not through any design – we’d just drifted away after year 12. I would watch his life

He’d died through complications from alcoholism. The last time I’d seen him was after he’d rung me to take him to hospital. He was in a very bad way. That was a year or two ago now. We’d spoken a couple of times on the phone. It always seemed he was getting worse, not better. These friends are just two of the people who make up the statistics we read about. Around 40 cyclists die on our roads each year. Fifteen Australians die each day from alcohol-related illnesses. My friends are no different from the others, except I happened to know them. But this lottery of life does deliver a few wins as well. A friend has just married, my niece has become engaged and my boss has given birth to a beautiful baby girl. Numbers keep falling. Cogs keep turning. Life keeps going.

“The reality is when you’re 45, time starts to catch up with you and the people you grew up with” through Facebook, as I’m sure he did mine. But it’s not the same as a handshake or a chat. I found out about my other friend after a story popped up about his death while I was scanning The Sydney Morning Herald.
