Combined effort to lower traffic speed near schools „„ By Caitlin Miles SCHOOLS ARE banding together to get speed limits lowered outside their gates. Linwood Avenue, Te Waka Unua and St Anne’s Catholic schools want to lower speed limits and install flashing speed signs to improve safety for children and families who drop them off and pick them up. Te Waka Unua and St Anne’s Catholic schools are both located along Ferry Rd and Linwood Avenue School is on Linwood Ave. All the schools are currently in 50km/h speed limits. Te Waka Unua principal Janeane Reid said the road outside the school is especially busy before and after school and lowering speed limits from 50km/h to 40km/h would help. “At peak times it can be very busy outside the school and while we have crossings we would like flashing speed signs,” Miss Reid said. Traffic figures from April showed along Ferry Rd between Osborne St and Aldwins Rd an average of 24,600 vehicles per day used the road with 1810 during peak traffic from 8am-9am and the same figures for the school peak between 3pm and 4pm.

Last year ex-pupil Isaiah Matoe was hit by a car outside the school when he tried to cross Ferry Rd. As a result his left ear

had to be glued back on and he was left with cuts and bruises. Penny Knight said she won’t let her six-year-old daughter,

Claudia, walk on her own to the school because of the traffic. “Even with the crossing, not everyone stops. People don’t

slow down and aren’t as careful as they should be around the school,” Mrs Knight said. ​A police spokesperson said a reduction in vehicle speed could save lives around schools. St Anne’s principal, Dallas Wichman (left), also wants flashing signs with lowered speed limits. “I was driving through a school zone not long ago and saw the flashing signs, it’s a really good reminder that you’re in a school zone, so be aware,” Mr Wichman said. Linwood Avenue School principal Blair Dravitski said last week the city council and a traffic engineer went to the school to see how traffic operates around the area. “They mentioned better signage along the roads near the school. We’re a little hidden behind the greenery so the signage will make people more aware,” Mr Dravitski said. He said he was expecting an email with the city council’s findings and what can be done by the end of the week.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK ALL POWER to Linwood Avenue, Te Waka Unua and St Anne’s Catholic schools in their bid to get the speed limit dropped to 40km/h outside their gates. Reporter Caitlin Miles revealed Linwood Avenue’s move a couple of weeks ago, and now Te Waka Una and St Anne’s on Ferry Rd have gone to the city council to lower the speed outside their gates too. There’s no reason why the city council shouldn’t move swiftly on this and drop the speed from 50km/h when children are arriving and leaving school. It’s a no-brainer. We pay tribute to the province’s top young sports people on page 11 with coverage of the Christchurch South Zonta secondary sports awards.

Ban on freedom campers expected „„ By Caitlin Miles ADDINGTON PARK will be rid of freedom camping for good by the end of the year if the city council passes recommended bylaw changes tomorrow. The city council will choose whether or not to make amendments to the Freedom Camping Bylaw which will ban freedom camping from Addington Park along with Windsport Park, Lower Styx River Mouth, French Farm and Wainui by December 1 this year. It is expected to also ban non self-contained camping throughout the city. The city council introduced a freedom camping bylaw last year, and camping was allowed at these five spots. In March, city council chief executive Karleen Edwards made the decision to temporarily close Addington Park and other freedom camping areas in the city and on Banks Peninsula until May next year. The move came after reports of overcrowding and sanitary problems including an incident

In Brief SMOKE-FREE DINING Three local cafes will make history today by taking part in the first formal trial of smoke-free outdoor dining in the country. The six-month pilot, named the Fresh Air Project, includes Emperor’s New Clothes, in Cashmere, Addington Coffee Co-op and Oddfellows both in Addington. They are some of the 20 Christchurch businesses who are taking part and will make their outdoor dining areas completely smoke-free for the next six months, in bid to improve the health of customers and staff. The project is a partnership between the Cancer Society, the Canterbury District Health Board, and endorsed by the city council. REPAIRS ON HOLD Ground conditions repair work to a retaining wall on Major Aitken Drive, Huntsbury, have been placed on hold to review the design. Work is expected to start Monday, November 7, to begin carrying out repair work following the reviewed design. It is expected to take three weeks to complete. The road between 30 and 41 Major Aitken Drive will be reduced to one lane and two-way traffic will be maintained via traffic lights. There will be on-street parking restrictions in place.

PARKED UP: A freedom camping ban has temporarily stopped Addington Park looking like this, and if the city council signs off on changes to the Freedom Camping Bylaw the ban will be permanent. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN of a camper defecating on the playground swings. Addington resident Bruce McNabb said the last couple of months have been great without freedom campers in Addington Park and he is happy to know the city council are banning camping there completely. The city council decided to have a partial review of the bylaw to make changes ahead

of the full review of the bylaw planned for next year. Deputy mayor Andrew Turner (left), who was also chairman of the hearings panel that made the report on the recommendations said these changes needed to happen ahead of the full review. “There were some issues that needed to be resolved before we came into the next summer season . . . we will look more closely


at the other issues when the full review is done,” Mr Turner said. Consultation on changes to the bylaw were open from August to September and 72 submissions were made with 55 supporting the proposed changes. The full review is still planned for May next year, it will discuss if further changes to the bylaw need to be made.

Potter retains leadership of community board

Veterinary practice

Lymphoma Moya is a beautiful 4yr old Bull Mastiff cross who until earlier this year had been a perfectly healthy young dog. Her owners had noticed that over the past few days she hadn’t been quite her normal bouncy self, had gone off her food and developed a swelling under her throat. They bought her to the clinic and although on examination she seemed quite well she not only had enlarged lymph nodes around her neck but also around the front of her shoulders and at the back of her hind legs. Causes of this could be infection, an allergic reaction, immune mediated disease (where the body kills off its own cells) or cancer. Fine needles aspirates (FNA’s) were taken of Moya’s lymph nodes and sent to a veterinary laboratory. Taking an FNA is a painless procedure and in the majority of animals can be done without sedation. A small needle is inserted into the tissue that you want to sample and a small amount of cells are collected and put onto a slide.

Unfortunately, the results that came back from the laboratory confirmed that Moya had a malignant form of cancer known as Lymphoma. This form of cancer is one of the most commonly seen in dogs and often involves multiple organs around the body. To find out where the cancer had spread to Moya had blood tests and thoracic and abdominal x-rays and ultrasound scans performed. The Lymphoma had spread to organs within her chest and abdomen as well as within her lymph nodes – she had high stage B cell-Lymphoma. The results were discussed with her owners who decided that they would like to go ahead with treating her further. With this type of Lymphoma treatment is not surgical, but medical; usually with chemotherapy. We are in contact with a number of specialist Veterinary Oncology clinics in Australia and we contacted them straight away. Within 24 hours they had produced an entire report on Moya, her cancer and different chemotherapy options that they recommended. These treatment options varied from palliative care with steroids through to multidrug chemotherapy options. Moya’s family decided to go ahead with the preferred primary treatment option lasting 15 weeks. Moya started her chemotherapy the following day coming into the clinic every Friday for a blood test to check her red and white blood cell levels and for administration of her drugs intravenously. Throughout the entire duration of treatment, she was very well behaved and tolerated the chemotherapy drugs extremely well, with hardly any noticeable side effects. She was always ready for her treats and walk after her drugs had been given! At the end of the 15 weeks Moya was in complete remission and four weeks later still appears to be. Her owners report that

she is better than ever and when she visited last week she was rolling around as normal for her tummy to be tickling whilst we were trying to take her blood test! There is a chance that the Lymphoma will come back but for the moment she is happy, has a new lease of life and is enjoying her time at home with her family. Informing a client that their special friend has a form of cancer, is one of the awful parts of my job. It is such a dreaded disease with often fatal consequences and often at the time of diagnosis, the disease has well advanced. Due to many cancers having malignant potential, speed of diagnosis and treatment is necessary to have any chance of remission. Many hard decisions have to be made and that is when you can rely on us to do our job. We have the necessary skills and diagnostics to diagnose the type of cancer your pet has and then we employ the specialized services of Oncology consultants in Australia to get the most successful chemotherapy protocol for your pet. That’s often the hardest part as the administration of chemotherapy usually goes really smoothly. Pets rarely have side effects, the drugs are painless if given properly, your pet is treated as an outpatient and we often see improvement quickly, if we are going to be successful. I have first hand experience in the process as my beautiful dog Lola developed kidney cancer last year and received four rounds of chemo. If anyone wants to discuss the process of cancer diagnosis and treatment for your pet, please give the clinic a call.

The community boards’ elected members were officially sworn in last week and the chair and deputy chairs. Karolin Potter is the chairwoman of the newly established SpreydonCashmere Community Board, retaining her position from when she was the chairwoman of the disestablished SpreydonHeathcote Community Board, after she took over from Paul McMahon when he resigned earlier this year.

Karolin Potter disestablished SpreydonHeathcote Community Board, with Lee Sampson the only new face. Ms Potter said during her time as chairwoman one of her goals is to have more people from the community involved in the board and discussing the issues facing the area. “I am really interested in seeing if there is a way of getting more community groups to be involved in the board,” Ms Potter said. Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board members elected Central Ward representative Sally Buck as the chairwoman and fellow central representative Jake McLellan as the deputy.

Sally Buck Ms Buck has previously had experience with local body politics. She was a city councillor for five terms, from 1989-2013. Ms Buck said she is focused on keeping the community at the centre of decisions that will impact them. “I want to ensure that the community’s voice is heard and that the community board works together to get the best outcome for the community,” Ms Buck said. Mike Mora was voted as the chairman of the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board and Helen Broughton is the deputy chairwoman.

News Concern at cycleway route „„ By Caitlin Miles DEMOLISHING HOMES for a cycleway has made Somerfield residents band together to stop the city council from doing it. Up to four homes at the end of Roker St and part of Barrington St could be bought by the city council and demolished to join the roads and make way for a 4m wide cycleway as part of the Quarryman’s Trail cycleway. Nic McKenzie is a neighbour to the potentially affected properties on Roker St and she didn’t think it was clear in the plans that the homes might go. “There were just some lines over the homes and if you weren’t looking closely you wouldn’t know the council are suggesting demolishing them,” Mrs McKenzie. City council transport operations manager, Steffan Thomas said the city council had been in contact with the potentially affected home owners but no properties had been purchased at this stage. Mrs McKenzie said she is “concerned” about the impact a cycleway will have on their quiet street. “For those of us who are a little bit newer to the cul-de-sac,

Mr Thomas said the reason the city council proposed the route through Roker St was because of the low traffic volume and minimal impact on removing car parking and buying properties would still be cheaper. “Even with the purchase of the properties in Roker St, the Roker St option is significantly cheaper to build than the Milton alternative and has less impact on the community,” Mr Thomas said. However, Mrs Macdonald does not agree. “For the community here it doesn’t make sense to put these busy cycleways down these quite streets,” she said. There have been 39 cycle accidents in the last 10 years along the Milton St route, with four being serious injury. Eight of the accidents were on Milton St between Barrington and Strickland streets, one of which was a serious injury accident. •In last week’s article on the Quarryman’s Trail cycleway we said 70 per cent of car parks are proposed to go from Antigua St, between Hazeldean Rd and Moorhouse Ave. In fact it should have read between Hazeldean Rd and Brougham St. We apologise for the error.

In Brief CAR FIRE A car that was torched in Spreydon on Saturday morning is believed to be stolen. Residents were awoken to a loud bang at about 1.20am. Crews from Addington, Christchurch and Sockburn were called to the scene on Edinburgh St and found the vehicle well involved. NEW VEHICLE FOR GROUP Community Watch has added a vehicle to their operation to help keep the community safe. The group spent several months fundraising for the vehicle which it will use during patrols of the area most week days with extra night patrols. The efforts to pay for the Suzuki Grand Vitara was aided by donations from Pub Charity, Hollands Suzuki, Barrington, The Cashmere Club, Fresh Choice Barrington and AMI Insurance. SPEED LIMIT CHANGES THe city council is proposing speed limit changes to six roads within the Halswell area. It is proposing to change the speed on Milns, Sutherlands, Sparks, Halswell Junction, Marshs and Quaifes Rds. It comes after the city council approved speed limit changes on 29 roads around the city in September.

Our People

Architect helps rebuild communities Entrepreneur Camia Young, 42, settled here in the aftermath of the February 22, 2011, earthquake. Fraser Walker-Pearce talks to the American architect about her passion for rebuilding the city Tell me what you were doing when you first arrived in New Zealand? I arrived five years ago and was teaching architecture at the University of Auckland. During that time, we brought more than 1000 students to Christchurch to help with the rebuild and I did that until about a year or so ago. I was flying from Christchurch to Auckland on a Monday and coming back on the Wednesday. I would do that every week and I got super tired. I loved teaching, it was such a good time. During your time at the university, were you still involved with Christchurch? In the middle of that teaching we did Gap Filler’s pallet pavilion, which took place over the course of a summer and winter. It was up for two years, so that was a treasure of a project. And during setting that up, I caught a bug – it was a good bug, but a bug nonetheless. The bug taught me about building communities through building buildings. It wasn’t about the pavilion it was about the community around the pavilion that made it work. It was about a healing place for the community to gather around after the earthquakes. And what after that? Then I started a project called Exchange Christchurch, XCHC. X stands for exchange and CHC is Christchurch’s airport code. And we will be doing Exchange Auckland, which will be XAKL and Exchange Wellington which will be XWLG. So there are other initiatives coming as well. It provides a place for people that have lost a lot in the earthquakes, a place to create and produce their creative work and develop their creative practice. Great, so what can people see at XCHC at the moment?

At the moment we have a jeweller, a painter, a composer, a few photographers, an architectural designer and art exhibitions that change weekly. So would you say you’ve been quite involved with the rebuild of the city? I’ve been more involved in the social side of the rebuild more than anything. What I’ve been doing is learning by doing while I’m here. This will absolutely be a 21st century city where it’s not so much about the next big icon, but where the people will come first and the buildings will be a by-product of that. I have confidence in the people. Right, and where in the city are you based? I’m mostly at the exchange in the central city, but I own a place out in Lyttelton. I love Lyttelton, but I also love Sumner, New Brighton, places with a cool community feel. I much prefer the speed of small than the big city stuff, you can get so much more done in small communities. I actually live up in Mt Pleasant and I quite like that. And you have a slight accent there – is it American? Yes. I was born in Colorado and those mountains still call to me. I’m from Aspen. It’s the Rocky Mountains that get me. New Zealand has a really strong connection with nature as well. I left when I was younger and lived in Europe for 11 years, studied in London, then worked in Rotterdam (Netherlands), Paris (France), Madrid (Spain) and Basel (Switzerland). It was great, I was practicing there as an architect. There must have been some incredible projects in the likes of Paris? There was one project in Paris – it’s the only time I’ve ever cried

ENTREPRENEUR: Camia Young moved to Christchurch to use her skills as an architect to help rebuild the city after the earthquakes.

when we lost a project. It still hurts to this day. I fell in love with it. It’s where I learned to dream with the intent to realise the dream. It’s easy to come up with an idea, it’s expensive to execute them. I’d imagine it would be. Have you been anywhere other than America, Europe and New Zealand? I’m also a Brazilian resident. My father lives there. I spend a bit of time there and I speak Portuguese as well. He lives in northern Brazil. He built a selfsustaining home in the middle of the sand dunes. He’s lived without electricity for the last 25 years and now has solar power. He’s a hippy in the middle of a desert. So he’s my inspiration for a lot of things. That’s pretty incredible. Do you have a project that, once completed, you’ll be happy to retire and put your feet up? No. I don’t really have an end-game. I love seeing positive change. And I think we’re all

inherently creative, to see that work done is the road and the end for me. Where did you spend your school years? Up through secondary I was in Aspen, elementary and high school. Then I did my undergraduate at University of Colorado and graduated as valedictorian and went on to get a masters in Los Angeles at SCIARC, the Southern California Institute of Architecture. In three years, I got two masters degrees, rather than two and a half for one masters, which it could’ve been. Then I practiced architecture in Europe for 11 years across the board there. Do you have any family over here in Christchurch? No, no family here, I fly solo. I have lots of love, I miss them, miss the mountains, too. But some family has come out while I’m here, though. Mum and dad have been out. My sister uses the old ‘if you don’t eat your

vegetables, you won’t be able to go visit Aunty Camia’ on her two kids. They’re super-excited to visit as well. Was it always an intention of yours to come to Christchurch? Not at all. I was looking for change from working in a corporate office. As much as I loved my life in Europe, I wanted to find somewhere I could do my own thing. A friend of mine who is a Kiwi offered to bring me in to teach at the University of Auckland, which was about three months before the February 22, 2011, earthquake. Then that entire year course became focused on the earthquake and on Christchurch. I had never taught and I had never been to Christchurch, but I was looking for a new home and so I came a month before the course was due to start and I walked Christchurch for that month and then went up to teach the course. I knew in that month that I would stay here. I was looking at a couple of other countries around the world – Brazil, Canada – but I couldn’t do it. What are some of your first memories stepping into Christchurch post-earthquake? It was late 2011, so it was post-apocalyptic. I thought immediately I was in way over my head and I thought I was naive in the fact that I thought I could make a difference. But after phoning my dad about it, I decided I would stay. I started really walking the city and learning as much as I possibly could about it. I ended up getting my visa through the job in Auckland and now I’m here. But that month, it was really scary for me because I had never seen a crisis on that scale before and I didn’t know what to do. Must have been pretty terrifying. Had you experienced an earthquake before that? I think I remember maybe one earthquake when I was in Aspen, but when I was in LA there was a few. But nothing compared to when I came here, and they happened so often back then.

Making cycleways work Spreydon Ward city councillor Phil Clearwater writes about the benefits and concerns of the Quarryman’s Trail cycleway, which will travel from Halswell through Hoon Hay, Spreydon, Addington and into the central city Both before and after being re-elected as the councillor for the Spreydon Ward, I have talked with residents about how we need to fix the problem of the city’s traffic congested streets. To reduce our reliance on cars, we need to have other transport options like active travel (walking and cycling) and public transport available so people have a choice. To build the planned 13 major cycle routes in the city, there will need to be compromises. The cycleways are designed to provide a safe route for people who are keen to bike to school or work, but do not feel the current roads are safe. There have been 39 cycle-related accidents along

the proposed Quarryman’s Trail route in the last 10 years and four of those accidents caused serious injuries. This cycleway will provide a safe and continuous cycle route between Halswell and the central city. Parents who have children at Our Lady of the Assumption and Hoon Hay schools on Sparks Rd have told me they are supportive of the proposal as it will provide a safe bike route for their children to get to and from school. This is something that they have wanted their children to be able to do, but with the busyness of the roads, they have not felt this was a safe option. The cycleway proposal includes a signalised pedestrian crossing outside the two schools to improve safety for the children crossing the road.

Readers respond to Western News’ article on the Quarryman’s Trail cycleway potentially removing car parks, changing speed limits and road layouts. James McKee – We think it’s a dumb idea and a total waste of funds. When the cyclists are charged for using the road then we should look at it. But they are a bunch of whining kids who want everything for free. The taxpaying road users are about to be screwed again and the ratepayers are screwed twice. Maybe the council can start licensing bikes and use the money for upgrades. Brian Roberts – With reference to the article in Western News I have a few questions:

1. Has anyone done any research into how many cyclists will use this facility. Will it be only on fine days and the car brought out for winter? 2. Does it take the needs of cyclists to have two roundabouts removed and replaced with traffic lights when motorists have put up with the roundabouts for years? The bicycle lobbyists seem to think that the city can be taken back to the 1950s and we will all ride bikes again. Has no one told them that you can never go back. The car is here to stay and that is a fact of life. They give no thought to the old and infirm and their needs but only see the Holy Grail of a car-less society. It is time that some of them grew up. One hopes that common sense will prevail.



For everyone in cars, or on bikes and walking, the proposals for the Quarryman’s Trail cycleway include some major traffic upgrades. The existing roundabouts at Lyttelton/Frankleigh/Milton Sts, Hoon Hay/Sparks Rds and Hendersons/Sparks Rds are proposed to be removed and signalised. This will improve traffic flows along these roads and reduce congestion in peak hours for residents and motorists. New traffic signals are also planned for the intersection of Disraeli/Antigua Sts to improve safety for cars trying to cross Antigua St in peak hours. Another part of active travel many residents have told me about is the need to upgrade many of our local footpaths. I’ll discuss fixing this part of our transport with city council staff and my fellow councillors, too. Meanwhile, I encourage local residents to give feedback to the city council on the cycleway proposal, as your feedback is critical to ensure that we build a cycleway that works for everyone.

Michael Brathwaite – Regarding the Quarryman’s Trail, while I do not object to cycle lanes in principle, I do object to the removal of any parking spaces, the closure of street entrances to motorists, and the lowering of speed limits. I am on a list of people to

Remember the citywide ban on outside fires „„ By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk Management Officer SUPPOSEDLY WE’RE zeroing in on summer now although some days it certainly doesn’t feel like it. A reminder that in the city boundaries there is a permanent ban on outside fires and we’re sort of obliged to put any fire out that we’re called to. I say sort of obliged because our officers are generally pretty decent people and quite often leave a small fire like a brazier to the occupants to put out themselves rather than involve a high-revving fire pump and have firefighters stomp all over a section. They do this at the risk of being lied to and ignored. The second time called back to the same fire their attitude is generally much less obliging. Ducklings, a dog stuck in a fence and an injured swan featured in animal rescues carried out by city crews this week.

whom the city council is supposed to send emails regarding issues like this but, while they advise me of proposed changes in places to which I seldom go, such as Linwood, I never seem to hear about ones in my area, and I’m certain I heard nothing about this one.

On Labour Day, when driving along Brougham St, I noticed Collins St had been closed. There had been a lot of discussion about it in the local papers recently and the community board recently asked the city council to lower the speed limit there. However, I suspect it has all been an orchestrated smokescreen, because when I rang the city council about it, I learned that they had decided in February to stop motorists turning into it to avoid the traffic jams where three lanes merge into two, and that it is to become part of a cycleway. I fully sympathise with shop owners who will lose business when customers can no longer park near their shops. They will probably be forced to cycle as they will not be able to afford to run cars anymore.

Stedman wins two more awards Paralympian William Stedman now has two Zonta awards to go with the two bronze medals he won in Rio MIDDLETON Grange student and Port Hills Athletics Club member William Stedman took home two accolades at the 26th Zonta secondary schools sports awards on Thursday night. Stedman won the most outstanding achievement by a young sportsman with a disability award, and then took out the most outstanding achievement by a young sportsman specialising in one sport. The 16-year-old became a double Paralympic medallist in September when he won bronze in both the men’s 400m T36 and men’s 800m T36 in Rio de Janeiro. The youngest member of the New Zealand Paralympic team ran through half the field in the last 200m to win his first bronze in the 800m final. He recorded a personal best time of 2m 11.98s in the race. He then won his second bronze medal in the 400m with a time of 55.69 seconds, one second behind winner Paul Blake of Britain. He also competed in the long jump, finishing fifth.

WINNER: William Stedman was awarded for his hard work and commitment to athletics at the awards evening. PHOTO: LEE MALZARD PHOTOGRAPHY

Stedman, who has cerebral palsy, was a spectator just four years ago when he was on a family holiday in London. Seeing the 2012 Paralympics gave Stedman the idea that he could compete on the world stage. After returning from London, Stedman took up cross-country, running with the Port Hills Athletics Club. But he switched to shorter distances and the long jump after attending a paraathletics camp in 2014. Leading up to the Rio games, the Paralympian trained on a daily basis with coach George Edwards at Hansen Park in Opawa.



HARD WORK: Stedman competed at the Rio Paralympics, taking home two bronze medals.

Koru Clinic talks dermal fillers! As the face ages, collagen levels deplete, reducing skin elasticity and leaving the facial skin lined, saggy, drawn and gaunt. Dermal fillers are considered by many as the ultimate weapon for older women to counter ageing, so what are the most asked questions? What are dermal fillers? Dermal fillers are most commonly hyaluronic acidderived gels that are injected into the face to fill out static lines and deep wrinkles. They restore depleted volume that can occur in ageing and weight loss, lift sagging parts of the face to reshape and contour the face to give it a more youthful or glamorous appearance. How do I know if fillers are for me? Koru Clinics Dr Heather Jefferies treats men and women with fillers and says the treatment is ideal for skin ageing. “A side effect of ageing is that collagen levels in the dermal layer of the skin decrease, so the skin can weaken, and lose fullness and elasticity. A slowdown in collagen production occurs from about age 30, which is when many people can begin to notice sagging, fine lines and wrinkles”. What areas do fillers help? “They are most commonly used on lips, around the corners of the mouth and in the cheek area,” she says. “Using dermal

fillers in the mid-face area can reshape the face by restoring volume. Cheeks can be enhanced and the overall contour of the face can be improved.” Will the results look natural? Dr Jefferies specialises in natural enhancement through medical expertise. “When having dermal fillers for the first time, patients are often concerned that other people will notice they may look different or ‘have had work done’. A treatment done in moderation, if administered by an experienced practitioner, will result in subtle changes

that are difficult to detect.” “The goal should be for friends and family to comment on how well you look or how refreshed you appear.” Are there any risks or side effects? “There can be problems with fillers,” Dr Jefferies says, “however, risks and side effects are often attributed to injection technique rather than the product itself, so you should ensure any filler treatment is undertaken by an experienced cosmetic doctor.” How long does a filler treatment take and how long will it last? A dermal filler treatment takes about an hour and the cosmetic effect is evident immediately. True results are seen in two to three weeks when the filler fully integrates into the tissue. Dermal fillers last anywhere from 10 months to two years, depending on the area treated and the type of filler used.” “If you decide to stop using dermal fillers, over time the product gradually breaks down and reduces in the skin. Tissue and muscles will return to their

Koru Clinic owner Dr Heather Jefferies previous pre-treatment state and the ageing process will continue as normal.” Dr Jefferies says fillers are relatively simple, less invasive and less expensive than surgery for freshening up the face. “In good, skilled experienced hands, injectable fillers can transform an individual’s appearance, helping them look younger, more beautiful and feel more confident, with minimal downtime”

Replacement dentures now just a phone call away with 3D technology Keeping up-to-date with the latest techniques in denture technology is one of the keys to the success of John Batchelor’s company, Duchenne Dental, so it’s no surprise that John has been closely following the development of 3D printing of dentures and dental implants. “I knew it was something that would be of enormous benefit to our patients,” he explains. “When I was confident in the advanced technology and its affordability, then I knew it would be a good option.” His research took him to the bi-annual International Dental Show in Cologne and to some of the world’s leading dental and IT companies, helping John decide that the timing was right to bring this technology to New Zealand. “I formed relationships with leading companies in dental scanning technology and 3D printing in several countries. We now have the technology and expertise to ensure our clients here in New Zealand receive world class treatment and products.” Unexpected client benefits Duchenne now 3D print all their chrome frames and partial bases, and have also started using 3D print technology in full upper and lower dentures.

John says there are numerous benefits to Duchenne’s clients, including providing patients with a quicker and more economical service, and dentures and implants that are more accurate and personalised. “A bonus is that all models are stored digitally so wherever you are, if you need a replacement denture or tooth, we can quickly and easily print one. And in many cases patients don’t even need to visit the surgery!” Duchenne Dental has manufactured over 300 partial dentures and both they and their patients are delighted with the results. for more information phone tristan pattinson or John batchelor on (03)2604188

Pine bark may support brain function Recent news from Auckland University of Technology has people excited about a pine bark extract called Enzogenol. AUT reported that patients suffering memory loss and other brain problems after a traumatic brain injury recovered better when taking Enzogenol compared to a control group. Enzogenol is not a new product, though. In fact, it was developed at Canterbury University and has been in our health food shops for over 10 years. According to ENZO Nutraceuticals, the company that produces the product, a number of research studies have shown how Enzogenol can help improve brain function and support

healthy blood circulation. The amazing thing is, it is made from the bark of New Zealand Pinus Radiata with an extraction method that uses only purified water. Apparently, the pine bark is full of healthy plant compounds that are naturally part of our diet when we eat fruits and vegetables. Yet, the pine bark is loaded with these natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds and makes a great starting material for this health product. Keen on a chewing a bit of pine bark?

“Treadle” for Healthy Feet “Treadling” on an Aircycle circulation booster is a highly effective way to keep your feet healthy,” says Lynne Taylor, Manager of Diabetes Christchurch. Maintaining good blood flow in the feet is key to preventative foot care and is simple with an Aircycle. The “treadle” exercise works the calf muscles and pumps the blood. “It’s in our feet that arthritis, complications of diabetes, including nerve, neuropathy and circulatory disorders often show up,” says Lynne. ”It’s important to heed the first signs, as loss of feeling can mean abrasions, ulcers and other foot problems go undetected or do not heal, sometimes leading to amputation”. By maintaining good blood flow with the Aircycle, people frequently

report numb, tingling feet regain feeling, normal colour and flexibililty, swollen ankles and cramps are relieved and ulcers heal. No need for special exercise times with the Aircycle. Just use it gently while having coffee, watching TV or chatting on the phone. Pop it in your pocket to take to use under your desk in the office or when travelling by car or plane. It’s so easy to protect and care for your feet with an Aircycle. Aircycles are available in pharmacies, Diabetes Christchurch, or call 0800 14 14 15.


Boost circulation and gently exercise while you sit – it’s so easy!

Improve Prostate Greater independence in your own home Health Naturally! The prostate is a small walnut shaped male organ located beneath the urinary bladder and wrapped around the urethra or urinary tube. It is of little significance for most men until the late 40’s when for a large percentage of men it tends to enlarge and affect normal urination by restricting flow through the urethra. This condition is known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH. BPH reduces the ability of the bladder to evacuate completely causing common symptoms like wanting to urinate more frequently (especially annoying at night and as it affects sleep quality), difficulty starting urination, dribbling after urination and pain with urination. The word benign in BPH is very significant as it means an enlargement of the prostate that isn’t cancer. However BPH should always be diagnosed by a M.D., as there is always the chance of prostate cancer. Once diagnosed as BPH it can often be managed quite well with herbal and nutritional remedies and without the side effects of prescription drugs used for this condition. Saw Palmetto is a herb that has been used for centuries for BPH of the prostate.

A review of 18 doubleblinded studies found an average improvement of 72% of BPH symptoms in Saw Palmetto users. Researchers have found Saw Palmetto to inhibit the formation of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and DHT is the main reason for the prostate to enlarge, and to be a risk factor for prostate cancer and hair loss. Phellodendron amurense inner bark is another herb that has been found to protect against BPH and recent research has shown it to be protective against prostate tumor development in laboratory studies. Lycopene is a potent antioxidant with numerous health benefits including cancer and BPH protective benefits. Fatty acids from the seeds of Pumpkin, Evening Primrose and Flax have been shown to be supportive of prostate and general good health.

Far from being ‘just another cover band’, The ABBA Show is a full-scale concert experience and stage show featuring 2.5 hours of live musical performance with a live band, replica costumes, theatrical lighting and effects, and all the ABBA hits. And despite Mamma Mia (the musical) still doing the rounds, promoter John Van Grinsven from Showtime Australia is confident that fans will recognize the distinct and worthwhile experience that The ABBA Show offers. “They’re completely different shows. Mamma Mia is a great musical but The ABBA Show does more of an authentic concert experience. We’ve worked really hard to make it just the way the fans will remember it if they were lucky enough to see the originals perform live. It really is a unique show.”
