Car park price hike fair says varsity „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding INCREASING THE cost of on-site car parking is the “fairest approach” to Canterbury University addressing the cost of car parking provision and maintenance. On-site campus parking prices has been earmarked to skyrocket over the next three years. Last week Canterbury University announced on-site campus parking will increase by more than 56.6 per cent per cent for students and nearly 120 per cent for staff by 2019. The decision comes after Canterbury University was unable to cover the cost of car park provision and maintenance. Vice-chancellor Dr Rob Carr said it does not believe it is appropriate to subsidise car parking from other revenue that would be used for

research, teaching and learning. When asked by Western News if the decision was a last resort Dr Carr said the decision was the “fairest approach”. City council requirements outlined in the Christchurch District Replacement Plan estimates an additional 1057 extra car parks will be needed in the next seven years. Dr Carr said the number of student parking permits had grown continually since 2013, in spite of parking fees increasing by 15 per cent. “In terms of impact on the community, on-street parking issues are for the city council to address,” he said. Currently students pay $304 a year while staff pay $455 a year to park on campus. •Turn to page 5

CONGRATULATIONS to the outstanding young people who featured in the Zonta secondary schools sports awards on Thursday night. We have an in-depth coverage of the annual awards on pages 8-9, with details of the winners and photos. Two names to watch out for in their respective sports over the next few years are St Margaret’s Lily Marshall, an outstanding netball prospect, and Burnside’s Cam Russell who was co-winner of the UC (rugby) Championships player of the year. Lily was judged best sportswoman and Cam most value sportswoman at the Zonta awards. The Hornby Hub has had a $75 million upgrade with new stores and a brand new food court. Good stuff. – Barry Clarke

In Brief BARBECUE PROPOSED The city council has begun consultation on the installation of a barbecue and shelter with seating at Avonhead Park. Wigram Lions approached the city council about the project so they could leave a permanent legacy for their 100th worldwide Lions anniversary in 2017. The barbecue facility would be located between the tennis court and sports pavilion. The city council also plans to install an additional picnic table and footpath.

SPEED LIMIT CHANGES POSSIBLE IN HALSWELL The city council has proposed lowering the speed limit along six roads within the Halswell area. This would include changing the speed limit on Halswell Junction Rd, Marshs Rd, Quaifes Rd, Sparks Rd, Milns Rd and Sutherlands Rd. It comes after the city council approved speed limit changes on 29 roads around the city in September.

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.

„„ By Georgia O’ConnorHarding AN OLD single-storey building has been transformed into a new two-storey retail and commercial centre. Designed by Cymon Allfrey Architects Ltd, a rebuilt retail centre in Hornby will feature a retail area on the first floor and a studio space on the second. The centre based on the intersection of Main South Rd and Garvins Rd will have a downstairs area housing a hairdresser, fish and chip shop and restaurant. Tenants for the retail centre are still being finalised. NAI Harcourts real estate agent Mike Tapley said the studio space on the second floor could be divided into a gym and office. He said the building was close to completion and was hoping to receive a code of compliance certificate from the city council over the next two weeks. The business owners Kaushik Nalin Patel and Manta Kaushik Patel applied for the resource

consent on March 10 last year. The former single building which housed a dairy, Thai restaurant and fish and chip shop was demolished so the new two-storey building could be rebuilt. Mr Tapely said the former building was “tacky as anything” and a “terrible old place” before it was demolished. The new centre leased by Harcourts will include associated car parking, 48m2 of signage and landscaping. Along the eastern side of the site will be car-parking and access both to Main South Rd and Garvins Rd with 17 on-site car-parking spaces.

Mr Tapley said all traffic issues will be mitigated with a 10min car park outside the shop, car parks around the back of the building and down the road. The report prepared by traffic engineer Novo Group Ltd’s planner Andrew Fitzgerald said the proposal’s potential effects on the surrounding environment would be minor at most. •HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of a new two-storey retail centre opening up at the intersection of Main South Rd and Garvins Rd?

Tap dancers’ amazing feat „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding YEARS OF training to transform his feet into musical instruments has paid off for 18-year-old Josh Wadley. The former Burnside High School student claimed the top prize in tap dancing at the National Young Performer Awards. Josh won the overall prize of $5000, beating 49 of New Zealand’s top tap dancers aged 15 to 21. “I think it went extremely well. I was very happy with how I danced and felt that I left everything I could on the stage. It was great to have my hard work pay off,” he said. Josh trained under Daniel Sintes and is now based in Sydney, where he’s studying a full-time dance course at performing arts centre, Village on Broadway.  His next goal is to travel to the United States to take part in tap festivals, including the Los Angeles Tap Festival and TapCity in New York. “I am one day hoping to become a professional dancer touring the world performing in shows,” he said. Josh said he also enjoys

teaching and would love to have his own dance school or show one day. His mother, Michelle Wadley, said her son had grown up with tap dancing but went over to Sydney to strengthen his other

forms of dance. “He was extremely shy so I didn’t think he would ever dance on stage, but (he) proved me wrong,” she said. As part of the competition, each dancer was required to

take part in a masterclass by the adjudicators, perform a threespeed dance solo and a solo of their own choice. Meanwhile, current Burnside High students Will Perkins and Bayley Graham, both 16, were awarded second and third place respectively. Both dancers said they felt the competition went well with Will winning $3000 in second place and Bayley winning $1500 in third. Will trained under JK Dance Works and Bayley with Jan Ruardy. In the future, Will is looking to compete in national dance championships, including Hollywood Bound in Australia, while Bayley is looking at competitions in Sydney and Melbourne.  “I really like being in front of audiences so anything that makes me happy I love doing. So I’d like to keep it up,” Bayley said. Christchurch Tap Dancing Teachers’ Association president Tracey Wilson said the boys danced their hearts out. She said the city had six tap dancers at the competition and achieved an amazing feat by taking out the top three places.

Car park price fair – varsity •From page 1 Next year, students will be expected to pay $350 per year, $400 per year in 2018 and $475 in 2019. Canterbury University staff will be expected to pay $600 next year, $800 in 2018 and $1000 in 2019. Ilam and Upper Riccarton Residents’ Association chairman Peter Harding (right) said he felt sorry for the university having to resort to such extremes to attract revenue. “If I was brutally honest it shows a measure of desperation on the university’s part. “We both know they would probably prefer not to do that. But I don’t think they believe they have any other choice,” he said. Waimairi Rd resident and member of the residents’ association Richard English said the increase would have ramifications on all affected parties. “It is certainly going to drive more people onto the street of course. From a resident’s point of view it is not helpful and some of the fees do seem to be quite steep,” he said. The resident association will hold a meeting to see what can be done about the issue.

Your Local Views Focusing on the issues We will be asking the city councillors in the western area to give us their views on issues. This week Hornby councillor Jimmy Chen talks about being elected and what he intends to do over the next three years I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation to the people of the Hornby Ward for voting for me once again and for giving me the opportunity to represent you on the city council. I received 3416 votes, and each of these votes represents the people of my community who showed trust in me, supported me and voted for me. I promise that I’ll continue do my best to serve you and to provide you with quality advice and information about the city council’s services. As a councillor for the next three years, I’ll focus on the following issues citywide: •Implementation of the housing policy – ensuring everyone

has warm, dry, and affordable housing •Implementation of the multicultural strategy – I want to ensure every single person in the city has a sense of belonging •Build new cycleway facilities •Strengthening the international relationships between the city and our sister and friendly cities in tourism, international education, science and technology, economic development and cultural exchange At a local level for Hornby: •Build a new Hornby Library, service centre and south-west pool •Improve the traffic situation and ensure all pedestrians can cross the road safely •Clean drinking water – I want people to be able to turn on their tap and have no fear about it being unsafe to drink •Ongoing monitoring of the quarry issue (Canterbury Aggregate Producers Group resource consent application was refused by the joint Hearings Commissioners, and Isaac and Selwyn’s Quarry have logged appeals to the decision to refuse CAPG consent to quarry up to 4m into our groundwater in mid-September 2016)

Remember the citywide ban on outside fires „„ By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk Management Officer

•Continue to monitor the issue of Templeton Golf Course land swap with an old quarry site •Continue to monitor the Ruapuna Noise Management Plan issue Other priorities: •I want the city council’s decision-making to be more open and transparent through the engagement and consultation with residents As you maybe aware, the vision of our city is a great place where people want to be; and the values of the city council is one team, making it happen with integrity and passion. I am genuinely looking forward to working together with the mayor, my fellow councillors, community board members and staff to serve our residents and to help in creating great benefits for this city and the community.

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.

For good measure they were again called to pluck a trapped drone from the top of a tree. These are sure to increase as aerial tools and toys become more and more prevalent. Just a word of advice to would-be pilots. There are an awful lot of trees that are much taller than our tallest ladder. Hornby Hub had an evacuation last Thursday evening, caused, it seems, by a spray tanning operation in a beauty shop setting off the fire detection system.

WESTERN NEWS

Readers respond to the Western News article on a proposed Lamb & Hayward funeral home to be established on Halswell Junction Rd Margaret and Tony Reiha – This is a residential area with beautiful homes – people have spent a lot of money to build a lovely home in a new area and this will bring the prices down considerably. The traffic will be horrific causing accidents at the roundabouts. We had considered shifting from our home in Westlake to the Longhurst area or surrounding areas to be a little closer to our family who also live in Longhurst and Halswell but most certainly wouldn’t entertain that area at all should this go ahead. This is residential not a business area. There are plenty of business areas for this funeral  home to build on else where – who wants to be reminded daily of death and the increase in traffic every day. Think about all the little children as well and I understand a school is to be built across from this – no thanks. Stuart and Alison Westoby – Although not living in the immediate vicinity but a little further west along Halswell Junction Rd we have no objection to a funeral home being established. There are few funeral fa-

Tuesday November 1 2016

cilities in the Halswell area apart from local churches leading to considerable travel to attend most funerals. For people to claim “cultural values” and “religious beliefs” as a reason to oppose is frankly clutching at straws if this is the best reason they can come up with. Death occurs in all cultures and some sort of service or celebration of life usually takes place. This is another example of nimbyism at its worst. Gary Knight – In consideration of the majority of funeral homes situated in sites not encroaching on residential properties the proposed  Lamb & Hayward addition to Halswell Junction Rd is a retrograde step. This insensitive siting will not only have a negative impact on resale value for adjacent homeowners, create congested traffic issues but is also demeaning for those having cultural values or religious beliefs opposing having a funeral home so close to a living area. In spite of parochial views by Lamb & Hayward noting the advantage of a funeral home and chapel within a community environment, the 500-strong petition opposing it would suggest otherwise. Given the myriad of land opportunities within a growing and expanding south-west surely an appropriate sector of land could be purchased  by this commercial entity for the proposed 1222 sq m funeral home comprising

two chapels, memorial gardens , lounge, administration block and a 181 car park site. 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. 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 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.

Brightest young sporting talent OUTSTANDING TEAM: The Burnside High School volleyball team were rewarded for their national dominance over the last two years, taking home the most outstanding team of young sportswomen award. They shared the award with Villa Maria. Burnside won their second straight national title in Palmerston North in April. They defeated Tauranga Girls’ College in a tight four-set tournament final 3-1 (25-19, 25-27, 25-22, 26-24).

SPORTS THE 26TH Zonta secondary schools sports awards dinner was held on Thursday night. The annual event, initiated by the Zonta Club of Christchurch South in 1990 to celebrate the sporting achievements of talented young Cantabrians, is a highlight of the year for award winners. For many, recognition at the awards heralds the beginning of long-standing and highly successful international careers. The judging of the awards was undertaken this year by Anita Sutherland, Mike De Bono, Jon Peters,

Aaron Webb and Dave Harrison. They had the challenging task of selecting finalists and winners from a total of 150 nominations (counting teams as one) received from 21 schools in the Canterbury area, including Kaikoura, North Canterbury and the West Coast. Zonta International is a service organisation, made up of business and professional women, committed to raising the status of women worldwide. This is undertaken through service, advocacy and fundraising to support chosen causes. PHOTOS: LEE MALZARD PHOTOGRAPHY

BEST SPORTSWOMAN: The ability to turn heads on the netball court and the water has seen St Margaret’s College student Lily Marshall (left) win the best all-round young sportswoman award. The highlight for Marshall came earlier in the year when she was named in the New Zealand secondary school netball team. The defender captained her school at the national secondary school tournament in Hutt Valley this month, where the team finished seventh. Marshall also represented St Margaret’s at this year’s Maadi Cup national secondary school rowing championship. She was part of the eight which finished second in the Levin Jubilee Cup final. The year 13 student also competed in a four which finished in the top 10 at the regatta.

MOST VALUABLE SPORTSMAN: Burnside High School first XV captain Cam Russell (right) took out the most valuable contribution to a team by a young sportsman award. Russell was the co-winner of this year’s UC Championship player of the year award. The flanker played well in excess of 50 games for Burnside in his four seasons with the first XV. After first making the squad as a year 10 student in 2013, Russell went on to captain the team in 2015. The year 13 student has also been a part of the Crusaders Knights under-18 development programme and this year helped Burnside win the South Island co-ed school championship.

honoured at 26th Zonta awards

OUTSTANDING YOUNG SPORTSWOMEN: Villa Maria College’s first XI hockey team also won the most outstanding team of young sportswomen award after securing their first ever national title this year. In September, the team won the Christchurch schools’ premier league before capturing their maiden Federation Cup title in Auckland. The team had only one loss over the entire season against St Margaret’s College in the premier league. It was also the perfect farewell for six students who played their final season for the school.

The St Andrew’s College clay target shooting team of Jacob Warnock, Lyndon Arundell, Jimmy Field, Mason Gardener and Laurence Arundell won the most outstanding team of young sportsmen award. They made history recently when they won the team points title at the New Zealand secondary school trap shooting championships. They scored 295/300 points, which has never been achieved before.

Middleton Grange student William Stedman took home two Zonta sports awards. Stedman won the award for most outstanding achievement by a young sportsman with a disability. He then received the biggest award – most outstanding achievement by a young sportsman specialising in one sport. The 16-year-old became a double Olympic medallist this year when he won bronze in both the men’s 400m T36 and men’s 800m T36 final at the Rio Paralympics. Stedman, who has cerebral palsy, also competed in the long jump at Rio.

HIGH FLYERS: Former Riccarton High School students Liam McIver (left), Dafydd Watkins, Mark Holdaway and Sophie Madsen received The Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award from Governor-General Dame Patsy Reddy recently. The gold award is the highest level of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award. To receive the award, students were required to complete five sections, which included undertaking a service in their community for a minimum of 12 months, working on a skill of their choice, travelling away for four days and three nights, taking part in a physical recreation activity for a minimum of 12 months and engaging in a purposeful activity away from home for five days such as environmental work. Deputy principal Shane Morrow said it is a huge commitment of time and effort to get through to the gold award. “We’re very proud of their outstanding achievement,” he said. Last year’s Riccarton High School student Sophie Madsen also had her gold award presented to her while current year 13 student Bonnie Maxwell will be attending a ceremony at Government House, Wellington, to receive her gold award.

dental clinic, but he makes sure everyone feels welcome and comfortable at Better Denture by breaking down those barriers and putting them at ease. The process of having new dentures made and fitted usually takes four appointments, and Chris explains the process step by step so patients understand what’s being done. “Every set of dentures is made to suit the individual, allowing us to customise every aspect of the process. We also aim to cater

toward the upkeep of existing dentures, with same day repairs and relines on offer, as well as being available on Saturdays, allowing us to work around even the busiest schedules,” he says. “We are focused on providing a ‘Better Denture’ experience for every individual patient. From the initial consultation, through the settling in stages after the dentures have been fitted and then the maintenance thereafter, we are here to provide the best possible service.” Anyone needing new dentures is invited to contact Better Denture, phone 349 5050, for a free consultation. The clinic is spacious and welcoming, and patients are invited to bring someone with them for

support at any appointment if they wish. Located at 6 Brynley Street Hornby, Better Denture is open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm and Saturday, 10am-12pm. Off-street parking and wheelchair access is available.

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? Further detailed information is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, phone: 388-5757 – We are Always Happy to Help!

“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, www.aircycle.co.nz or call 0800 14 14 15.

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. Further information is available from our Natural Health Advisers, and Naturopath at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help!

THE ABBA Show jets in for a full national tour this month, playing at the Isaac Theatre Royal on Wednesday 9th November. Following more than 4000 international performances to date, including recent tours of North America and South Africa, the show’s NZ tour will take in an exhausting 22 different venues in just 34 days. 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.”
