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.

HOPEFUL: Maddie Collins and her mum Sarah Manson Collins learned last week that Maddie’s

kidney disease has caused early stage heart failure – but they are hopeful she will recover with

quick treatment.

honour

RENOWNED cardiologist

Hamid Ikram, who worked to

open Christchurch’s first heart

surgery unit, was named in

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

Church-goers targeted

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

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

$350,000 sought

in fundraiser

•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.

$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

PROGRESS: Drone images over the Western Belfast Bypass shows the 2km stretch of road

previously out of view of the public.

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.

Jaz Tuihana Vivian

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.

entertain you.

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.

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

Michael

White

be raring to go at

7.30pm.

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

ON THE LINE: St Thomas co-coach Jacob Allen holds the

Connetics Shield after winning it from Middleton. Papanui will

have a chance to pry it from his grasp if they beat St Thomas

tomorrow night at the Christchurch Football Centre.

a very dangerous side who can

beat anybody on their day.

“We look forward to a tough

game and know Papanui will

not lie down, they will throw

everything at winning the

shield,” he said

Last time the two met St

Thomas eased past with a 3-0

win. As the halfway mark of the

competition approaches, only

two points separate the top four

teams.

Burnside will look to take

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.

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

Discover this

unique Emporium

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.

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 councillor

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.

RYMAN HEALTHCARE

Retirement village a lifestyle

choice for independent residents

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

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.

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

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

121 Skyhawk Road

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.

Residential Care Services

Golden Healthcare Group’s position

is at the forefront of Canterbury’s

residential care services is cemented by a

state-of-the-art facility being developed

at Lady Wigram Retirement Village.

The concept is to provide hotel-style

accommodation for those residents

who enjoy being part of a vibrant, social

community.

The group has already completed

78 villas with an additional 23 to be

completed by November 2017. Until the

full project is finalised, one of the villas

built during the first stage of construction

has been converted to accommodate

social events such as bowls, happy hours,

high teas and television viewing of sports

fixtures.

Once the project is complete, it will

comprise 101 villas, 73 apartments, and

100 care beds. 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.

The villas will be offered in a

combination of two and three bedrooms

whereas apartment residents will have a

choice between one and two bedrooms.

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

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.

been shown to significantly reduce high

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.

HOME & HEATING

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

Heat Transfer

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.

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.

the adjoining lounge is perfect for family

living and entertaining. A sunny northwest

aspect, double-glazed windows, insulation,

heatpump and a log-burner ensure this is a

home for all seasons. Upstairs, three double

bedrooms share a new bathroom - and

A double internal-access garage completes

this delightful home. Outside, the easy-care

garden is a magical space with its green

lawns and trees.

In zone for Thorrington School,

Beckenham School, Christchurch South

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.
