US treatment for Maddie By Gabrielle Stuart MADDIE COLLINS has spent most of her life battling kidney failure – now the 13-year-old St Margaret’s College student has been dealt another lifethreatening blow. She was told last week while at Starship Hospital for kidney treatment that her heart is also failing. If Maddie had a successful kidney transplant, her heart could recover, but without one, she would be at risk of a heart attack, her mother Sarah Manson Collins said. The news had hit Maddie and the whole family hard, she said. “She was in the room when they told us and she said, ‘okay, how many months have I got to live?’ We said, ‘no, it’s not like that, you’re going to be okay,’” she said. •Turn to page 3

Heart specialist receives Queen’s Birthday honour RENOWNED cardiologist Hamid Ikram, who worked to open Christchurch’s first heart surgery unit, was named in the Queen’s Birthday Honours yesterday. Professor Ikram (right), of Fendalton, was made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for his services to cardiology and to education. He was one of 28 Cantabrians honoured, including Jim Anderton for his political work, bungy jumping pioneer AJ Hackett, and former City Missioner Michael Gorman. Professor Ikram retired in 2002, but has continued to research, lecture and privately practice at St George’s Hospital. He was instrumental in a longrunning public campaign in the 1990s to open a cardiac unit in Christchurch. The unit was finally opened in December, 1997. •Turn to page 9

YOU HAVE to hand it to Maddie Collins - she’s one heck of a plucky 13-year-old. Life threatening conditions, yet she still has time for a huge smile for the camera (see page 1). Maddie’s health battles have been documented a lot over the past year as her family tries to raise $350,000 for kidney treatment in the United States. More than $80,000 has so far been raised but there’s a lot more needed. She’s earmarked to go there next month, the first step in what will be a long – and hopefully – successful process. On another medical note, congratulations to retired cardiologist Hamid Ikram named in the Queen’s Birthday Honours yesterday (see page 1). The city owes him much. He was instrumental in the 1990s to open a cardiac unit in Christchurch. – Barry Clarke

Church-goers targeted $350,000 sought in fundraiser

Cars broken into while parishioners in mass By Andrew King PEOPLE attending church during the evening have been coming out to find their cars broken into, with one parishioner losing $5000. Cars parked at St Teresa of Lisieux Parish on Puriri St, Riccarton, and Our Lady of Victories Parish on Main South Rd, Sockburn, have been targeted on Saturday and Sunday nights in recent weeks while the owners attended mass. St Teresa priest Father Antoine Thomas said little things like passports and bags had been taken from cars. A woman returned to her car a few months ago to find it had been broken into and $5000 missing. Father Antoine said he did not know why the woman had $5000 in her vehicle. “There must be a really well-organised gang getting around. We have installed more lighting, spoken with

community watch and asked for volunteers to patrol the car park,” he said. Sixty-four cars were broken into last week in the Riccarton, Upper Riccarton and Sockburn areas. Two cars were stolen and another four attempts had been made to steal other cars after the owners discovered the ignition barrels had been forced, police said. Majority of the cars were targeted on Centennial Ave, Rattray St, Matipo St, Mandeville St and Brockworth Pl, with 20 broken into on Saturday night alone.​ It comes after about 12 vehicles were broken into

around the Three Elements Chinese Restaurant and the New Zealand Institute of Sport’s Christchurch campus car park on Wharenui Rd, Upper Riccarton, a week earlier. Said Senior Sergeant Pete Stills: “These thefts are a pain in the proverbial to the owners as there is very little taken normally, but the clean-up cost is often time-consuming and costly.’’ •Anyone with information about the thefts can phone 363 7400. Alternatively, information can also be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

•From page 1 Kidney problems can force the heart to pump harder, putting a lot of strain on it. An American study has found children on dialysis for kidney problems were 1000 times more likely to have a fatal heart attack. The family has been fundraising to take Maddie to The John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, United States, next month where more advanced treatment may make it easier to match a donated kidney. In 2012, her father, Adam Collins, donated one of his kidneys to Maddie, but her body rejected it. “We know we’re fighting uphill to find a match for Maddie, but you’ve got to believe in miracles,” Mrs Manson Collins said. The treatment offered in the United States would make it less likely Maddie’s body would reject a donated kidney. However, it comes at a price – the full treatment is expected to cost about $350,000. Givealittle pages have already raised more than $80,000 for Maddie, and people in the community had also been incredibly

generous, Mrs Manson Collins said. Many people, from family members to total strangers, had also volunteered to be tested to see if their kidneys might be a match for Maddie. She had no idea how many, as the family were not allowed to know unless a match was found. But even though none so far had matched Maddie, Mrs Manson Collins said every person willing to donate an organ had helped someone. “It’s not just about Maddie. We don’t have enough organ donors and that’s what this is about, so if I can make more people talk about organ donations I’ll have succeeded. “People say she looks so well, she looks so healthy, but you don’t see kidney failure until you lift up her shirt and see all those lines in her body,” she said. But she said Maddie’s love for animals, the people around her and her passion for life kept her strong. •Maddie’s givealittle page is givethegiftoflifetomaddie

$122m highway progressing Belfast bypass now 80 per cent complete

THIS IS what the Western Belfast Bypass looks like two years after work started. The New Zealand Transport Agency released drone footage this week of the $122 million project which will see a new four-lane, 5km stretch of highway constructed. Bypassing Belfast, it will extend the Christchurch Northern Motorway (SH1) and connect into State Highway 1/Johns Rd, west of The Groynes entrance. The bypass is part of the Government’s Christchurch Roads of National Significance programme, a multi-million dollar plan to make it easier and safer to travel throughout Christchurch and the Canterbury region. NZTA Christchurch highways manager Colin Knaggs said the project, which got under way two years ago this month, is about 80 per cent complete. “Over 375,000 hours have been worked on this project so

far and it is progressing well as this drone footage shows,” Mr Knaggs said. “The Fulton Hogan construction team are currently focusing on three new bridges which will carry the Western Belfast Bypass above Groynes Dr and Dickeys

Rd, and over a new onramp that will link Main North Rd to the Northern Motorway.” These three structures are a major part of the project and are now close to being finished which is a great milestone for the project team.

Mr Knaggs said a lot of the work that went into these bridges is underground, hidden from view. “Before the project team could start building they had to carry out ground improvement work, constructing around 2400

columns of gravel and stone into the ground to make it denser,” he said. “This reduces the effects of liquefaction and ensures the bridge embankments remain stable, preventing damage to the bridge structures during an earthquake.” In addition, more than 30 steel encased reinforced concrete piles support each structure and extend 18 to 20m below ground level. The drone footage shows the 2km long mid-section of the project which has been out of public view during construction. “Aside from some road marking and other minor finishing touches, this section of the project is also close to being finished,” Mr Knaggs said. Over the next two months the project team will be working to reopen the new-look entrance to The Groynes and finishing a new pedestrian subway that will take Waimairi Walkway and Otukaikino Track users under the Western Belfast Bypass near Dickeys Rd, along with other road work. The bypass is expected to be completed by early 2018.

for 2018 completion Facts and figures •The project will cost $122 million to build. •The project started in May 2015 and will be finished by early 2018. •On opening, the bypass will carry around 24,000 vehicles per day. •600,000 cu m of gravel is being carted from the Waimakariri River and McLeans Island quarries for the project. •118,000 plants, shrubs and trees will be planted. Most of these are grown from seeds and cuttings sourced from native plants in the Canterbury area. •More than 2000 native fish (including long fin and short fin eels, giant bully and inanga) have been rescued and relocated to other parts of the waterway. •120,000 sq m (the size of 14 rugby fields) of geotextile fabric has been installed in overpass embankments to provide additional stability. •52km of wire rope will be used in the safety barriers running along the median and along the sides of the new highway.


In Brief FUNDING GRANTED The Papanui-Innes Community Board has approved $7500 from its discretionary response fund for the Cross Roads with a Future Trust, Shirley Ladies Probus and Santa Claus Workshop Charitable Trust. The cross roads trust will receive $6000 towards the cost of employing staff, Shirley ladies trust will receive $500 towards bus trip costs and the Santa Claus workshop trust will receive $1000 towards the purchase of materials. The community board also approved $1450 from its positive youth development fund for north-west athletes. This included a $500 grant for Angus Lachlan McWilliam to attend the FIBA under-19 World Basketball Championships in Cairo, Egypt, in July. COMMUNITY CENTRE The Papanui-Innes Community Board has requested that fortnightly updates on the progress of the St Albans Community Centre rebuild project, with costs, be presented to the board. The new centre will cover 530m2 and will include a large hall with a spring floor, recreation room, two small meeting rooms, a multi-media room, office, kitchen and toilets.

COMING TO FRUITION: Construction teams have put in over 375,000 hours of work, and are currently working on three new bridges which will carry the Western Belfast Bypass above Groynes Drive and Dickeys Rd.

Jaz Tuihana Vivian Our People Tomboy takes non gender-based Jaz Tuihana Vivian, 22, is making her mark in the fashion world with her unconventional clothing range. She talks to Georgia O’Connor-Harding Tell me about your fashion brand Losers Are Cool (LAC Crews)? I have always kind of had the dream of doing a tomboy clothing line but I have never really known enough about it. So I did a business course last year and it made me a little bit more confident about releasing it. A couple of my friends are in the fashion industry. I bounced ideas off them, came up with a name, put it all together and released it. There is actually nothing online that is purely tomboy clothing. What I wanted to do was take away that awkward shopping down the wrong aisle thing and make it all online so people don’t have to go into the shop. What made you realise you were a tomboy? I have always been a tomboy out playing rugby and getting muddy with the boys. I am not

a girly girl at all. Mum always tells me about when I was a kid she would dress me in a pretty pink dress and then I would go steal my brothers’ clothes just before we were about to go out. I played rugby for eight years. I had to take time off this year because it was getting too busy but I am into staying fit and healthy. It

makes you feel better at the end of the day. Tell me about your idea to have non-gender based clothing? I think these days in our society you know everyone is breaking down the barriers. And a lot of things have come to head that you know back in the day would be

scorned upon. I think with everyone breaking down these barriers why not me as well. I don’t understand why there is girl and boy clothing – it just puts that line in the middle. Have you always had a passion for equality? Just growing up being a tomboy you always have your battles. You have people at school and stuff saying things to you and it makes high school really uncomfortable. I thought if I could make it easy for people that are younger, that is me doing my bit. Was it a mission creating these clothes? It was a big mission but like I said, I had a few friends in the fashion industry so I bumped heads with them and thought what isn’t working about the clothes now and what I can improve on. Together we came up with a few ideas. I made it very basic so I can add onto it. My sister Jayde Vivian is an upcoming model so she was my model and her friends are interested in photography. Everything about it means a lot to me. It hasn’t been about making money. It is about making a difference. How did you get into the business side of things?

Definitely, I left high school at year 12. I was never into school but I knew I had to carry on doing something so I went to the New Zealand Institute of Sport thinking I would be a personal trainer and then I did a marketing paper in the curriculum. It was just what we had to do and I aced it. My teacher pulled me aside and said that was the best marketing paper she had seen. I was like why don’t I venture from that and do something with it rather than sitting in a gym all day. That is when I got into business. I was the class clown at school and it is a better feeling being successful now having not actually enjoyed school at all. What were your experiences like at school and how did you stay true to yourself? I had a lot of support from my family. Especially my mum. We have quite an open relationship. When I came home from school she could tell I was upset. I think that was the best. There were a few teachers at school I really related to. I think a mixture of that and people telling me I am unique is what pulled me through. But I definitely got bullied a lot.

clothing to the fashion world Getting out of school must have been the best for you? Absolutely, I was definitely a misfit. But I wouldn’t encourage anyone to just drop out of school - you have definitely got to have a plan. Mum said as soon as I had a plan I could sign out. How did you come up with the Losers are Cool idea? It just stemmed from school. I thought you look around the classroom and you have your popular kids, nerdy kids and out-right losers. The losers end up being the ones everyone wants to be around because they are genuinely the most successful ones. Do you think people began to look at you more positively as you all got older? Yes definitely, I have people messaging me now saying: ‘I know we didn’t get on at school but what you are doing is awesome.’ You get the support from those that influenced you to do this. It makes you feel a lot better. It all happened for a reason. What are your other passions? I work in hospitality as a bar tender at The Sideline Sports Bar in Richmond. I do my clothing line throughout the day. My job opened my eyes. I have been at the bar almost four years. I think being in the hospitality industry and

seeing people from all walks of life has opened my eyes to equality issues in society. Everyone should be themselves and not be put down. What do you think of the Southbridge community? I love going to my mum’s in Southbridge. The people there are genuinely interested in what everyone is doing. I know you get the small town stuff but people are interested in you going far. I like that aspect of country life. Everyone is genuinely happy and they have been supportive to people of all ages. One of my mum’s friends bought my own clothing. During those tough times at high school how did you overcome being bullied? I still get really bad anxiety. You have just got to remind yourself you are going in the right direction. It is hard at high school, there is the councillor but people feel intimidated going there because it seems like they have got an issue or weak. You have to find someone to talk to – even if it is just a teacher you have a comfortable relationship with. I am a pretty outgoing person so I didn’t find it that hard. Tell me a bit about your sister Jayde? At the start of the year she went

to New York Fashion Week. She is signed with NZ Models & Talent. They took a group of girls over there to Australia to do workshops. She said it was an amazing experience and opened her eyes up to the industry. She has left school end of year 12 as well and I suppose she is trying to find her feet. My brother Tyler is in a band called Idiio. It is short for idiosyncratic meaning unique. He used to be in a band in Christchurch called the Make Believes. I think we are all pretty creative. Are there any other plans you have for the future? What I really want to do is be a wedding planner and with my clothing line I want to make tom boy wedding apparel. That is my end goal. I want to do suits but tailored to fit women better. I could go into the dresses. I could make a dress that is more comfortable. Have you always had an interest in weddings? I have always been fascinated with love I think. It is amazing and with all this stuff going on with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. I think it is important to try and embrace and make people feel comfortable when it comes to their super special day in the life.

STYLE: Upcoming model Jayde Vivian wears some of her sister’s clothing from Losers Are Cool.

FOCUSED: Rangi Ruru’s Lydia Robinson was third in the under-16 race at the Canterbury secondary schools cross-country championships. Two teams from Rangi also came second in their categories. PHOTO: RANGI RURU GIRLS’ SCHOOL

Rangi students give strong cross-county performance By Andrew King RANGI RURU had a strong showing at the Canterbury secondary schools crosscountry championships last week with two teams second in their categories. On top of the team success, four students finished in the top 10 in their races. More than 170 students were competing across the three categories.

The under-16 and over-16 teams were second off the back of some solid individual running efforts. Chloe Hughes was third in the year 9 individual race and Rosa Blake fifth. Lydia Robinson was third in the under-16 individual section, while Isabella Carter was 10th in the over-16 individual event. A school spokeswoman said it was an “awesome effort.”

these shores, this Land Brent ForBes - In my previous works the landscape has

been used to observe the time of day, the seasons passing, maybe (but not often) a particular place – however these works are not any of those things. Looking at these works as a whole, I see the main preoccupation has been water, and where the land meets it. The landscape, although more modelled and distinct in terms of handling, is not the main motivation – just as important is the inescapable fact of the ocean. Making these works was more about the process than before, sticking pieces on, seeing what opportunities were created, adjusting, rearranging... it was about not having a set finish in mind, just responding to what the works needed. In this way I think of these works as more universal and about painting rather than simply “landscape paintings”.

Papanui eye up Connetics Shield By Andrew King PAPANUI WILL have a chance to take high school football’s equivalent of the Ranfurly Shield when they play St Thomas tomorrow night. In one of the last games of the night, the allure of taking the Connetics Shield back to Langdons Rd will be a powerful motivator for Papanui, who will be raring to go at Michael 7.30pm. White The match and all other games will be played at the Christchurch Football Centre. St Thomas, who recently took the shield from close rivals Middleton with a resounding 5-1 win, will want to keep it locked away for more than just a week, but will have to defend it without their influential captain Michael White. Papanui coach Liam Campfens said it was time they put hands on the elusive shield, which they have never held before. “The effort from the squad in the last few games has been fantastic, but the results just haven’t been falling our way. With the shield on the line, we’re looking to put that right,” he said. St Thomas co-coach Richard Washington said Papanui are

three points against Shirley at 7.30pm tomorrow after jumping into second spot on the table from fourth, with a 9-0 thumping of Rangiora last week. Last year’s meeting between the two was a goal fest with Burnside taking the honours 7-4. St Andrew’s have top-of-thetable Lincoln to contend with tomorrow at 4pm after moving into fifth position with a 6-0 victory over Shirley last week. The men from Papanui Rd have been in and out of the top four over the past few rounds and would like to get in the mix with a win. Last time the two met, Lincoln edged them 3-2 on their way to an almost perfect season. St Bede’s take on Riccarton at 4pm and Christchurch Boys’ High play Rangiora at 5.45pm. St Bede’s recorded their third win of the season last week, beating Papanui 3-2. CBHS also won 2-1 against Middleton. Points table 1. Lincoln, 11pts; 2. Burnside, 10pts; 3. Cashmere, 10pts; 4. St Thomas, 9pts; 5. St Andrew’s, 9pts; 6. St Bede’s, 9pts; 7. Riccarton, 6pts; 8. CBHS, 6pts; 9. Shirley, 6pts; 10. Middleton, 4pts; 11. Papanui, 3pts; 12. Rangiora, 3pts; 13. Christ’s, 1pts

Garvey returns to golf academy BURNSIDE HIGH School golfer Amelia Garvey has been selected to attend the 2017/18 national academy. The 17-year-old was part of the academy last year, and aims to continue the progress she made during her time there. The first academy camp will start next month. Garvey recently collected her biggest win of her young career, claiming victory in the New Zealand amateur stroke play at Hastings Golf Club in March. She has her name etched on the Mellsop Cup alongside current women’s world No 1 Lydia Ko after carding 281 shots over the 72-hole tournament – seven shots ahead of Chantelle Cassidy. She then headed to the Australian Girls’ Amateur at the Port Kembla Golf Club, Primbee, New South Wales, in April where she was 17th.

War memorial graffiti protection ‘ugly’

By Sarla Donovan PANELS DESIGNED to protect New Brighton’s iconic war memorial from graffiti have been criticised by locals as “horribly ugly.” However, the New Brighton RSA says they are needed to safeguard the monument for future generations. The $25,000 panels were given the okay by the RSA and installed by the city council just over a week ago. RSA executive manager Garry House said people needed to understand that the clear panels have a film over top of them, which can be replaced if they are defaced, keeping the monuments clean. They could also be easily removed for ceremonial purposes such as Anzac Day. “It’s not a perfect solution but it’s a lot better than having graffiti all over the cenotaph, which does lasting damage to the sandstone.” He said he wanted to give the panels a chance and “if it turns into a disaster” then they’d need to look at other options. New Brighton Project coordinator Martha Baxendell said they reinforced the idea that New Brighton was not a safe or good

place to be and detracted from the area. “They are just horribly ugly. We did a photo shoot with Rockabilly Show and Shine and wanted to do an Anzac shoot but

we had to relocate to the Burwood War Memorial.” She said the memorial had only been tagged once in the last two years and there wasn’t really a need for it to be protected.

lor David East said the panels weren’t ideal but he was happy to trial them. “Aesthetically it doesn’t look that great.” He said the decision was pretty much set in stone by the time it came to the board. Binn Inn New Brighton owner Nikki Griffin thought the panels were “hideous.” She said there must be a better way to protect the memorial than the “fish bowl they’ve come up with.” Blair Hughes, owner of Paper Plus New Brighton, said he could understand why they’d been put up but didn’t like the look of them. “Aesthetically, it doesn’t work. I would have thought there’d be a better option.” Burwood Ward city councillor Glenn Livingstone said he hadn’t seen the memorial since the panels had been installed. Similar panels around the Woolston Borough Monument were covered in graffiti less than three weeks after they were installed.

Coastal-Burwood Community Board member Tim Sintes said he didn’t know how else they could protect the memorial “apart from a barbed wire fence.” Coastal Ward city council-

Retirement village a lifestyle choice for independent residents

The main bedroom opens onto a balcony where residents can enjoy breakfast al fresco.

at Diana Isaac is “like your own place”. In the short time they have been there, they have observed a lot of planting bringing seasonal colour to the extensive gardens and say it will be “amazing” come spring and summer when it is in full bloom. Located on the first floor, their apartment has a view not only of the gardens, but also of the neighbouring wetlands area, and counting the ducks they can see when they pull the curtains back has already become part of their morning routine. Adrienne says residents living in groundlevel accommodation are free to potter about in the garden by their residence, while those with balconies can brighten them up with pots of plants. Another couple, Pam and Sam Hartley, moved into their two-bedroom townhouse at Diana Isaac a year ago and are very happy

Seated beside the bowling green, from left, residents Beverley Waters, George Waters, Pam Hartley and Sam Hartley with sales advisor Adrienne Todd.

there. As Pam puts it, “You should do it while you can enjoy it.” They previously lived in Mt Pleasant, and Pam says she could see the Diana Isaac Retirement Village from their home and had wanted to move into the village when the time was right. As a member of Christchurch community choir, Cantabile, she had entertained residents at several Ryman retirement villages, and while she could see that residents enjoyed living in other ones too, she felt Diana Isaac was the place for Sam and herself because of the age group of the residents. The two had also been invited to various functions through the friends of the village database, so had had a sample of village life, which helped them make their decision. Pam has joined the choir at Diana Isaac, which is just one of the many activities available for residents to enjoy. Facilities include the indoor heated pool and spa, gym, an all-weather bowling green, a petanque area, a croquet green, a movie theatre, a well-stocked library, a hair and beauty salon and a shop for basic grocery items. Plus there is the exclusive Ryman Triple A exercise programme, with three classes a day, five days a week. “These provide health benefits for the residents and help their balance and mobility, plus there is the social aspect with the participants enjoying morning tea together after their class,” Adrienne says. Pam, Sam, Beverley and George are also thrilled with the entertainment and social opportunities offered, which include live music, happy hour and outings. As independent residents, they cook their own

meals, but are welcome to purchase a meal in the village dining room any time they wish. Adrienne says one of the highlights is the fine dining evening on the second Wednesday of the month, when residents dress up for the occasion and enjoy a threecourse meal and drinks. Regular functions are also part of the entertainment programme. “We have fabulous functions,” Adrienne says. “We have one major function every year as well as fashion parades, 1920s’ and 1960s’ dances, movies, happy hours, high teas, Cup Day with champagne, strawberries and a sweepstake, and experts are brought in to speak to the residents on a variety of topics. They include lawyers speaking on enduring power of attorney, health representatives from the stroke and arthritis foundations and the police on email and phone scams. “We also take two vanloads of residents out for a meal on Wednesdays, on Tuesdays we take them to the local New World supermarket and on Thursdays to The Palms.” Currently there is an opportunity to move to the Diana Isaac Retirement Village, with a two-bedroom independent apartment and a two-bedroom townhouse available. These homes are available on great terms with the Ryman Peace of Mind Guarantees, which includes the guarantee of fixed weekly fees for life*. To make enquiries or to make an appointment to view the apartment or townhouse phone Adrienne Todd on 385 3518. Terms and conditions apply.

Townhouse and apartment available now Enjoy your own modern home with resort-style facilities right on your doorstep! For more information phone Adrienne Todd on 385 3518 1 Lady Isaac Way, Mairehau 6874

The Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Mairehau is one of seven Ryman retirement villages in Canterbury, and like many of the others it offers resort-style living for independent apartment and townhouse residents right through to assisted living in serviced apartments, resthome, hospital and dementia care as residents require. Sales advisor for the village, Adrienne Todd, says for those making the decision to move there and live independently, it is a lifestyle choice. Two of the most recent residents to move in, George and Beverley Waters, shifted into their two-bedroom apartment about two weeks ago, but already they feel completely settled in their new home. “Once the boxes were unpacked, we felt like we’d been here forever,” says Beverley. “Our furniture fitted in – it couldn’t have been better.” Originally from Greymouth, the couple had been living in Bishopdale for the last seven years, but as they were getting older their two daughters and their son felt it was time for them to make the move. “It was a good decision,” George says. “We had friends here that we had visited, so we knew the place. We got to know the staff, and found them friendly and very welcoming. We’re here to stay.” Still very fit in his 80s, George makes regular use of the village’s heated indoor pool and the gymnasium, and every Wednesday he joins a group of friends to swim at the Graham Condon Pools, after which they enjoy a morning coffee together. Both he and Beverley say their apartment

Migraine relief Your headache or migraine may literally be a pain in the neck

It’s not very well known that almost 13 percent of people – including childrensuffer from headaches and migraines. It is the 3rd most prevalent illness in the world and causes 91 percent of the people it affects to miss work or reduce their functional capacity. In the past 10 years, the understanding of what causes headaches and migraines has significantly changed. The research now shows that the sensitisation of the brain stem in

your neck is what causes this pain; and the specially trained physiotherapists at Muscle People are well versed in how to treat it. Krissy Winter, a patient of Muscle People, had this to say about her experience: “My migraines were debilitating and they’d often come without warning. Sometimes once a week, but generally about once a month. I’d moved up from Dunedin where I’d managed them

with my Osteopath, yoga and Pilates. In Christchurch I was so reluctant to let anyone near my neck. I read the article and I must admit I wasn’t convinced and I went to the first appointment with a page of all the concerns I had. The first time I met Laurie I remember walking out and feeling more in control. After about four treatments with Laurie and perfecting the technique she taught me I truly began to reap the benefits. Now I’m fantastic. If I feel a migraine coming on I now have the control to manage it myself, even stopping them from taking over, without needing someone to drive me in to the osteopath or the hospital for an injection to relieve the pain. With the technique Laurie taught me I’m armed and dangerous!” Laurie, Clare and Naomi were trained in Australia in the award winning and ground breaking Watson Approach to dealing with headaches and migraines. This proven method examines and treats the movements of the first three segments of the neck, which when sensitised cause headaches and migraines. “In our clinics we see people from as far away as Invercargill who come to us specially to seek treatment” says Laurie Moore, Director of Muscle People Physiotherapy. She says “The symposium in Australia we went to just recently reaffirmed the effectiveness of what we

do, and honed our skills even more.” Generally patients will come to our clinic four or five times in the first few weeks of treatment. We show them some very simple exercises to do at home. After the first few weeks, treatment sessions are guided by how the patient is feeling. “Often patients come to us at the end of a long journey having tried quite a few other treatments, and we are able to help them reduce or remove their pain.” Laurie says.

How’s your sleep? Sleep is as important to the human body as food and water, but most of us don’t get enough quality sleep. Insufficient sleep, or disruptions to the sleep-wake cycle, may cause you to feel stressed, moody, unhappy, depressed, frustrated, fatigued, as well as cause poor concentration, memory, weight gain, skin conditions and even be a factor in faster aging and degenerative diseases. Melatonin is your sleep hormone. It is secreted by your brain’s pineal gland at the day’s end to help you relax and prepare for sleep. As you drift into sleep more melatonin is released to put you into a deep restorative sleep. Unfortunately many of us do not produce enough melatonin to achieve a quality sleep, and to sleep continuously through until morning. If you have trouble going to sleep, and/or wake often throughout the night you could be low in melatonin. Montmorency Tart Cherries are an excellent source of naturally occurring phyto-melatonin. Tru2U Sleep Support contains 100% pure tart cherry concentrate. It is an excellent natural way to increase your melatonin levels and improve your sleep. It is ideal for the whole family Melatonin is only produced at significant levels by the pineal gland when it is dark. It is imperative to sleep in a dark room with no lights for your body’s natural production of melatonin. Research conducted at Michigan State University found Montmorency Tart Cherries to contain some of the highest concentrations known of antioxidants including potent anthocyanins. These

potent antioxidants help keep the body healthy. According to Dr. Lester Packer, PhD, world renowned cell biologist, “There is overwhelming scientific evidence demonstrating that people who eat a diet rich in antioxidants will live longer, healthier lives.” Tart cherry juice has been found to support joint health, mobility, flexibility and muscle recovery. It contains an enzyme called “uricase” that helps break down uric acid in the joints, which can lead to joint pain and gout. Montmorency tart cherry juice has also been shown to significantly reduce high blood pressure at levels comparable to that achieved by medication but without the side effects of medication according to new research from Northumbria University, Newcastle. Participants with the highest blood pressure saw the most benefit. Tru2U Sleep Support is 100% pure tart cherry concentrate. It is a great product to support healthy sleep and general good health.

The proposed facilities will include a rest home, hospital, and dementia facilities, and permanent amenities such as a community centre, bowling green, swimming and spa pools, a gym, a theatre, a library, and a hairdressing salon.

How’s your blood pressure? There are many tell-tale signs our health isn’t what it should be. Finding out we have higher than normal blood pressure is an important one. According to Julian Marshall, owner of Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy in New Brighton, making a few life changes can help you keep on top of it. “Our body is really amazing. It has the ability to heal itself of just about any disease if we make the effort to do the right things! Often there are signs that things are not right and this is the time to find out why. Disease doesn’t happen for no reason. Cardiovascular disease, one of the leading causes of death is generally very preventable. The secret is to make the changes before things get too bad!” Some symptoms of high blood pressure include, headaches, migraines, not noticing the cold, the feeling of pressure in the head and nose bleeds, but often the first sign that something is wrong comes in a more life threatening manner. “The kidneys don’t handle high blood pressure very well, and can become seriously damaged as a result. Or, worsecase scenario, you can suddenly have a stroke or aneurysm, or even a heart attack.” To have good cardiovascular health, the systolic reading – the blood pressure in the arteries when the heart pumps – should be 120 (or less) and the diastolic reading – which is the pressure in the arteries between beats or while the heart

is resting should be between 60 & 70. It is common when talking about blood pressure to say the systolic reading over the diastolic reading, i.e. 120/60. Blood pressure can vary considerably over a relatively short period of time. It is also best to check your blood pressure when you are relaxed at home. For this reason I recommend it is a good idea to purchase your own digital blood pressure unit and check your blood pressure regularly. They are easy to use and can give you a good indication of what may be effecting your blood pressure especially if it is high. A moderate increase in blood pressure can be caused by many things including stress & worry. Blood pressure over

140/70 is often caused by poor circulation. Poor circulation again can be caused by various factors especially plaque build-up in the blood vessels but also if the blood vessels are not supple enough or in poor condition. Calcium is an important mineral for good health. However it often builds up in the arteries as calcium plaque restricting blood flow. Researchers have found Vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 can allow this calcium to be pulled out of the arteries and absorbed into the bones and tissues where it belongs. It can therefore help prevent osteoporosis also. Montmorency tart cherry juice has been shown to significantly reduce high blood pressure at levels comparable

to that achieved by medication but without the side effects according to new research from Northumbria University, Newcastle. Participants with the highest blood pressure saw the most benefit. Recommended dosage is 30ml, two or three times daily away from food. Not only will tart cherry juice help your B/P but its powerful antioxidants and concentrated nutrients can support good health, joint function, help clear up gout and give you a much more restful deep sleep. Drinking delicious Hibiscus tea has been shown to lower elevated blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels, reduce muscle cramps as well as support the central nervous system. Try to drink at least 2-3 cups daily. The lack of magnesium can be a major contributor too, with most people having less than optimum levels. “Sure signs of being low in magnesium include having an irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, migraines, muscle cramps, twitches and night time teeth grinding are just a few.” These are just a few supplements we highly recommend to help you support your good health and blood pressure.

Get rid of dampness in your house

Now wITH the colder and wetter weather on its way, home owners are focusing on ways to make their homes comfortable, warm and healthy for their families throughout winter. RISING dAmp is an issue that affects many of our older properties which suffer from poor, or no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many people have relocated to homes that suffer from rising damp which can be associated with health problems. Independent tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise from the ground and enter a house every day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation and musty smells. moulds can produce various allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and very young are especially vulnerable. Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising damp and are there to help. They will come to your damp home and pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete under your timber floored home. Specially adapted for our New Zealand conditions and applications it provides a layer of protection against rising moisture. An unexpected benefit that the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed recently, is that many owners of properties which had underfloor foam concrete installed, reported that it also provided protection against liquefaction after the earthquakes. Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd now for your free, no obligation quote and complimentary appraisal of your underfloor ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or 0508 362626 for more information.

Ventilation Equipment Suppliers to trade and retail ● Domestic ● Commercial

The facts about home ventilation Balanced Pressure vs Positive Pressure Under the New Zealand Building Code, all buildings, including residential, need to be suitably ventilated, either with opening windows or forced ventilation. Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this provision is to safeguard people from illness or loss of amenity due to lack of fresh air.” There are many benefits to forced, or mechanical, ventilation over opening windows, including warmth, security, reduction of outside noises and reduction of condensation. Traditional domestic ventilation systems are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from outside via the roof space and force the stale air out through gaps around windows and doors. The incoming air from these systems has to be heated or cooled to keep the house warm in winter or cool in summer. The Smooth-Air HEX390 is a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It extracts air from the house and at the same time brings in fresh air. These two streams of air pass through a heat exchanger, which warms incoming air in winter and cools in summer if air conditioning is being used. This means that up to 80% of the energy which would be

wasted using a traditional positive pressure system is recovered, resulting in significant energy savings and therefore lower heating or cooling costs. Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation systems have been considerably more expensive than traditional positive pressure systems. However, with Smooth-Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390 balanced pressure system can be installed for a similar price as a traditional positive pressure system.

Store merger triggers massive sale at The Bike Shop News for cycling enthusiasts – The Bike Shop in Main North Road, Redwoodis relocating and merging with the original store in Burwood Road. And to celebrate the move to the Burwood store, The Bike Shop Redwood, at 290 Main North Road, is having a huge relocation sale. Up till the end of June they are offering hot prices and great discounts on top-brand bikes and accessories, before the merged business begins operating on July 1. This is an opportunity not to be missed – the chance to purchase quality products at reduced prices before the doors close. Business owner Graeme Taylor has been operating his retail stores for nearly 17 years in total – first The Bike Shop in Burwood (previously known as Burwood Cycles), and then the additional Main North Road outlet, which

opened at the end of 2014. And with over 28 years in the cycle trade he has the experience and knowledge to advise customers on the right bike for their needs. His mechanic and right-hand man Grant has 15 years’ experience in the trade, so with over 40 years’ experience between them, Graeme and Grant are true cycle experts, who make sure every customer rides away completely happy with their new or repaired bike. The Bike Shop carries all the leading cycle brands including GT, Haro, Trek and Raleigh, as well as Premium BMX bikes and a wide selection of children’s bikes. They have also introduced the new Volterrae bikes, which are proving popular. Complementing the bike selection is a huge range of helmets, gloves, and cycle accessories for all needs and

budgets. Not only does The Bike Shop sell recognised brands at genuine sale prices, they are also committed to getting bikes adjusted as finely as possible. “There’s no point in having a high-end bike if it rides like a junker,” Graeme says. “We see many poorly assembled bikes coming through the door, which we then get going more efficiently.” As the ‘home of the $40 service’, The Bike Shop’s servicing includes everything from puncture repairs to suspension servicing, all carried out on site, and they also do wheel building. Once the Main North Road store closes at the end of June, all these sales and services will be offered at The Bike Shop at 269 Burwood Road.
