Council, Living Earth hit with fines

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

THE CITY council and the

Living Earth compost plant in

Bromley have objected to two

fines dished out to them by

Environment Canterbury.

The $1000 fines, handed to

city council and Living Earth,

were a result of odour breaching

consents, originating from the

compost plant.

They were each fined for an

“offensive odour outside the

boundary of the Living Earth

facility”. The alleged breach took

place on June 14.

It is the first time the city

council had been fined for

breaching an odour consent, a

city council spokeswoman said.

ECan’s regional leader of

investigations and incidents

Valyn Barrett said there have

been “57 complaints (from the

public) since May 1”, but of

those complaints, just two were

substantiated.

Mr Barrett said ECan had

received correspondence from

both the city council and Living

Earth asking for a hearing in

court.

A city council spokeswoman

confirmed it is appealing ECan’s

infringement fine, but could not

give any further details.

A Living Earth spokeswoman

also confirmed they had made

“a formal objection” to the fine,

which she said was the “first and

only” fine it has received.

“We can’t really get into it

because it’s before the courts .

. . we also can’t talk about the

grounds for our appeal because

it’s before the courts,” she said.

An ECan spokeswoman said

she also couldn’t comment on

the hearings as they were before

the courts.

Living Earth is operated on

behalf of the city council, and

owned by Waste Management

New Zealand.

Last August, Pegasus Post

reported that an electronic nose

was bought by the city council,

costing about $250,000.

It was purchased to detect

out smells exceeding the limit

of the consent coming from the

compost plant.

Mr Barrett said the closure of

Bromley School on June 9 and

10 due to an unknown gassy

smell was not linked to the two

infringement fines.

Salvation Army programme

helps hundreds into jobs

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

A WORK programme run by

The Salvation Army in Aranui

finished up last month, getting

more than 420 people into work

in the rebuild over a period of

four years.

The ‘U Build 4 the

Rebuild’ programme was

established as an earthquake

recovery project by The

Salvation Army in April

2012 and ran its first civil

construction course with just

five people in

June that year.

Project

manager for

the programme

Robyn

Laurenson

(right) said the

project was funded by donations

from the public after the

February 22 earthquake.

“We’re based out of Aranui.

We did that on purpose, because

the east was hit very badly from

the earthquakes. Some people

needed food parcels, blankets,

all sorts of things, so it was a

REBUILD HELP: The Salvation Army’s ‘U Build 4 the Rebuild’

programme recently finished after getting more than 420

people into work.

way to give back.

“The funding for the project

was all through donations

to The Salvation Army postearthquake

from New Zealand

and overseas donors . . . when

we talked to SCIRT, they were

talking about a shortfall of

about 1500 rebuild workers,” she

said.

Ms Laurenson said

“pressure cooker” type

programmes was the best way

to reflect the industry.

“The six-week courses started

at 7am every morning because

we wanted to reflect what really

happened in the industry . . . we

had people who had lost their

jobs through the earthquake.

We up-skilled them in a pressure

cooker type six week course

so they could get into these

types of jobs,” she said.

Last month, the funding

stream ended for the ‘U Build 4

the Rebuild’ programme.

But The Salvation Army’s

youth and education officer

Bruce Tremain said although it is

a shame the programme ended,

it lends an opportunity for a new

programme to replace it.

“Unfortunately the funding

stream was cut. It was always a

limited source and just happened

that it finished in June,” he said.

Funding has now been

moved to a driver mentoring

programme, trying to give

people confidence to go for their

full licence.

In Brief

ROTHESAY RD LIGHTS

Rothesay Rd in Parklands is

not scheduled to undergo street

lighting upgrades at this time.

However, the city council still

intends to replace the fluorescent

lights. They were installed

between the 1960s and the 1980s,

and have a low efficiency rating.

RICHMOND ROAD REPAIR

North Avon Rd has been closed

between North Parade and

Flesher Ave for wastewater

works. The detour will be North

Parade, Medway St to River Rd.

The road closure is scheduled to

be lifted in October. Meanwhile,

the Stapletons Rd and Dudley

St intersection will be closed for

about three months. Stapletons Rd

is one-way southbound between

Averill St and Randall St.

KNITTING FOR ALL

Children and the elderly united

for a good yarn last week at The

Palms shopping centre. Knitting

workshops were held, and the

centre donated $1000 to the Kiwi

Family Trust to help enhance

their support services for the

community. Children were taught

the basics of knitting by expert

knitters, and each participant

was given a free starter pack. The

pack came complete with a ball of

wool, knitting needles and an easy

Tyra Adlam aka Maleficent

Playing the villain for charity

Tyra Adlam has a second life as one Disney’s most-loved villains, Maleficent. Georgia

O’Connor-Harding spoke to her about the reaction she gets when undertaking charity

work dressed as the “mistress of all evil”

Why did you decide to dress up

as Maleficent?

A lot of it had to do with being

drawn to gothic characters.

Characters that are crazy pale,

with colourful eyes decked out

in black. Maleficent is very

commanding and powerful. I

have so much more confidence

in my real life now after dressing

as this character.

What was it like when

you made your first public

appearance as Maleficent?

It was Halloween and I ended

up going on a bus trip and having

a great time. I didn’t realise

New Zealand had these Armageddon

expos. When I went to

my first expo I had no idea what

to expect. I spent the first hour

posing for photos. The reaction

was staggering. My character

encourages strength and power.

Meeting like-minded people in

the community was great, too. I

got into charity events through

that. The goal now, with my

friend Darth Vader, is to do as

much good as possible. Our

characters both know what it’s

like to suffer. We both want to

give back to people who need

help – there is nothing in this

world like it.

What events do you attend as

Maleficent?

I go to Armageddon, and do

charity and not-for-profit work

with the Christchurch Faerie

Circle.

What do you do as a day job?

I have worked at the Christchurch

Horror Maze over the

summer as a scare actress.

Because of health issues I’ve got,

I can’t really do a great deal.

So it hasn’t been an easy

journey?

No. Ever since I was diagnosed

with a chronic illness it has

been ongoing. Finding the right

balance is so important because

you can do too much. Some

days are really good but you can

push yourself a little too much

and your body can protest the

next day. One of the reasons I

love being Maleficent is because

it is not about me. When I do a

charity event as Maleficent it is

not about me and my issues, it

is entirely about someone else.

It is really nice focusing yourself

WORKING FOR CHARITY: Tyra with Flat Man (middle) and the

Christchurch Faerie Circle at an Imagination Station charity

event.

PHOTO: ANGELA JONES

on people in need, rather than

focusing on yourself. It is a way

for me to get out of my own head

and realise other people have

stuff going on as well.

You have a great outlook.

You kind of have to. You get to

a point where you can either sit

there and be miserable about the

things you can’t change, or you

can invest your energy into the

good stuff.

Tell me about your family?

I have a sister who is incredibly

supportive. My parents live

in Te Puki, near Tauranga. It

is the Kiwifruit capital of New

Zealand. My family think it is

great I dress up. There is this idea

that it is weird and there can be

judgment, but my family think

it is great. They get right behind

it and support it. My sister is an

artist. She is a painter that just

got into sculpting and is very

creative. My grand-father, who

passed away in 1997, was

into pottery so there has always

been an artistic influence in my

family.

Have you ever considered

going into acting?

I have toyed with the idea. But

with my chronic illness, there

is no telling how I will be on

any one day. Charity events do

not happen too often and they

are only for a few hours. Even

if I don’t feel great, there is the

reward of helping others and I

can push myself through. But it

is a matter of listening to what

the body is saying.

And how old are you?

I am 36. All my friends complain

they are getting older, but I

am getting closer to 40 and love

it. It is actually really exciting. In

my 20s, I was like most people.

I was relatively self-absorbed,

self-focused and a bit dramatic.

Obviously living though the

earthquakes was a pretty traumatic

experience. That was when

MAGIC: Tyra dresses as the Disney character Maleficent when

she does charity work.

PHOTO: KIRSTY LEE

I realised I needed help. I had

extensive therapy. I needed to

address over-coming my grief.

I knew people who died in the

2011 earthquake. But I have now

put that trauma behind me. The

main thing is to keep moving

forward.

How do children react when

they see you?

It does vary. I have done some

faerie events where children

come rushing up to me and

throw their arms around me.

On the flip-side, some find my

whole look intimidating. I have

been known to have done charity

events where children look at me

and burst into tears.

When you were younger did

you enjoy fairy tales?

I was always drawn to the

dark characters. When I was

four-years-old I remember

going into kindergarten and the

teacher asked what we want to

be when we grew up. I wanted

to be Lily Munster because she

was a vampire. When I started

watching Disney movies I

found the villains interesting.

Old-school princesses were one

dimensional. Nowadays you

have movies like Frozen where

the princesses have their own

defined personalities. But back

in the earlier days, their entire

existence was having a man save

them and there was nothing

exciting about that.

Thanks Canterbury

for your continued support

Community garden theft

Fashion

The looting of

a Churchill Park

garden shed went

unreported

to police

Gardening

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

A RICHMOND community

garden was “broken into

and smashed” recently – but

volunteers decided not to pass

the case on to police.

Thieves allegedly took gardening

equipment and a lawn mower

when they broke into the Churchill

Park Community Garden shed

on Guild St late last month. The

Motoring

garden is run by volunteers.

The garden’s co-ordinator

Mary Tingey said after the incident

she decided not to involve

the police.

“They have better things to do

than worry about a little community

garden being broken

into like ours . . . I think they

gardening equipment was stolen. ​

have higher priorities to be honest,”

she said.

A police spokeswoman said

to help protect yourself and

others, crime should always be

reported.

“All members of the public are

encouraged to report crime or

suspicious behaviour to police as

soon as possible,” she said.

The tools at the garden were

bought through funding grants.

All end products – such as silverbeet,

cabbage and peas – from the

garden are given to a food bank at

Delta Community House.

The community garden was

started by the Richmond Community

Action Network and

Delta Community House after

the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

It is run by “four or five”

volunteers who tend to their

patch every Friday.

Ms Tingey said it is a wellused

park, and especially popular

with children.

“The park itself is a beautiful

spot with plenty of birds for company.

It is well-used as a place to

bring children and dogs, as well

as a peaceful place to rest. Children

have built huts,” she said.

Ms Tingey said almost everything

in the garden had been

donated or supplied by local

businesses.

“The park and garden is a

community effort. The shed was

donated by CanCERN [Canterbury

Communities’ Earthquake

Recovery Network] and it was

transported to the site by the Student

Volunteer Army,” she said.

“The land is owned by Anglican

Living, who strongly support

the garden. Worthington

Contracting have supported the

garden by supplying water and

fixing up hoses when things

go wrong. They also mow the

lawns . . . they are very good

neighbours.”

Celebrating

work in the

community

MORE THAN 20 businesses

from the Bromley and Linwood

areas got involved in the annual

It’s Great to Live Here event held

yesterday.

The event was a partnership

between local community groups,

businesses and the city council.

It brought community groups

and organisations together to

showcase the work they do in the

Linwood, Phillipstown, Bromley

and Woolston areas.

Phillipstown Community Hub

co-ordinator Viviana Zanetti said

it was great to be invited.

She said it was a perfect

opportunity to let the community

know what their organisation was

currently doing and their plans

for the future.

Representatives from the

Ministry of Education and

Ministry of Social Development

attended the event.

Linwood College staff also

spoke with the community about

the school’s rebuild, and gathered

residents’ deedback.

New Brighton veteran marks 100 years

Money

CHEERS:

Allan Adam

had a quiet

couple of

beers at the

New Brighton

Club with his

friends to

celebrate his

birthday.

• By Caitlin Miles

A CENTURY of memories came

flooding back to New Brighton

Working Men’s Club and war

veteran Allan Adams when he

celebrated his 100th birthday

yesterday.

Mr Adams has also been a

member of the Sumner RSA for 40

years. He still goes for a beer with

friends when he can.

Mr Adams is a resident in the

Brookhaven Retirement Village in

Woolston and Christchurch has

always been home.

He was born in Opawa in 1916

and attended primary school

in Opawa before heading to

Christchurch West High School.

He said he was a “good kid” and

only got the strap once. Which he

“didn’t deserve”.

“A prefect walked past the door

and I waved at him, the teacher

saw me and I got the strap. I didn’t

deserve that,” he said.

After leaving high school Mr

Adams worked with his father for

several weeks before getting two

job offers on the same day.

“I had wanted to work in radio

and I got offered a job but I turned it

down for a job at the Tai Tapu Dairy

Company. It was the height of the

depression and I wanted a job that

was going to be stable,” he said.

He worked for the dairy company

for 43 years.

He met his wife June in 1943

when he 26.

“I was in Wellington on holiday

and I was down at the wharf when

I saw her, we went on a couple of

dances and she worked as an usher

at the movie theatre, I went to the

pictures quite a lot,” he said.

During t World War 2 Mr

Adams was a radar technician

in the New Zealand Air Force. It

wasn’t until after basic training

when he was on standby that he

realised he was colour-blind.

“They kicked me out after that,”

he said.

There is no secret to longevity for

Mr Adams. He said hitting the century

mark is not that important,

all birthdays get the same after a

while.

“My wife always said you’re such

an old bugger you’ll make 100.

“And now I have,” Mr Adams

said.

Youth MP for

Christchurch East

and Aranui High

Tuesday August 2 2016

Fortunate to have democracy SHOWBIZ Christchurch held

its popular Way Off Broadway

ews

School student

Beth Walters

talks about

attending Youth

Parliament and representing

the eastern suburbs

Parliament,

ashion

a word which until

recently used to have a series of

negative connotations because

I would only ever see it through

the eyes of the media. However,

maybe the word Parliament is

viewed negatively because we

don’t value and understand fully

our democracy?

I know personally it was only

until recently from participating

in Youth Parliament, did I realise

Gardening

how fortunate we are to live a

democratic society.

Youth Parliament was an

experience that was eye opening,

not only to the way our democracy

works but also to how every

individual has backgrounds and

passions that shape their viewpoints

and the way they conduct

themselves, because of the demo-

otoring

cratic society we live I realised

how privileged we are to be able

to express these opinions.

Over the space of two days, 121

youth MPs from across Aotearoa

represented and advocated for the

asty Bites

young people from their respective

electorates. I represented Christchurch

East. As young people we

learnt a lot and experienced the

majority of what a MP would.

Youth parliamentarians this

year debated a mock bill. Its

purpose was to ensure that New

Zealand’s web pages and apps are

accessible to people with disabilities.

Some would argue, was this

the most relevant issue that affects

young people to be debating?

However, I feel the perspectives

that were raised provided a

youthful insight into an important

issue that the Government

will one day have to pass a bill on.

It was the mock bill that gave me

insight into how vital it is in our

democratic society that different

opinions and perspectives are

presented when debating issues

that affect everyone.

The respect, the courage and

the mana that was shown by the

rangatahi that represented each

electorate and community over

the two days at Parliament, was

a true testament to the calibre

of young people we have in

Aotearoa.

But the question can be asked

in the Christchurch East electorate,

how can we better encourage

involvement and engagement in

the democratic process? In the

2014 election, a total of 2540 of

the 4265 people aged between

18 and 24 enrolled to vote in

the Christchurch East electorate

voted. However, since being in

Parliament I’ve begun to ask,

what about the other 40 per cent

who chose not to vote?

I’ve recently turned 18 and in

this year’s local council elections

and also in next year’s general

election I am legally able to vote

and I will, because I feel educated

around the different parties and

policies but I only feel educated

because of my experiences at

Youth Parliament, prior to that I

had no idea.

If that is the case, then there

will be many young people like I

who feel uneducated around the

democratic process. As a community

how can we better educate

each other on the importance of

voting, that it is a right that we

should be grateful to have and

how can we better show not only

young people but also adults

the importance and value that a

democratic society presents?

Way off Broadway

returns to the screen tomorrow

night on CTV, in an all new

season of Rural New Zealand.

Mr Bamford will return to the

screen for the first time in nearly

12 months after a near-fatal truck

crash over the Christmas period

last year.

The Rural New Zealand team

have been hard at work following

the end of season two, earlier

this year with filming for season

three beginning in July.

“We’ve had some absolutely

cracking days filming over the

winter, the weather has really

played ball. We’ve been travelling

far and wide, leaving our gummy

marks right across Canterbury,”

said Mr Bamford.

Mr Bamford is excited to show

off what he and the team have

been working on when episode

one airs this week.

“We catch up with two girls

that are riding horse back,

circumnavigating New Zealand.

We met them in Kaikoura,

3000km into their journey,” he

said.

This week’s episode sees Mr

Bamford meet Carrfields founding

director Greg Carr.

“Over the next 16 weeks

we’ll be learning more about

the Carr family and how the

Ashburton-based agricultural

business has grown into a diverse

international operation,” he said.

Mr Bamford said that one of his

highlights this season was a recent

trip to Omarama, to meet the

2015 South Island Farmer of the

Year co-winner Richard Subtil.

Later in the season Mr Subtil

will explain the effort that

went into recognition in the

competition and his plans to

future-proof the family farm for

generations to come.

Episode one will air at 8pm

tomorrow on CTV, Freeview

Nurse Maude COMMuNITY ParTNersHIPs

driving force behind Nurse Maude

The supporT of the people of

Christchurch for Nurse Maude’s work

started the day sibylla Maude first

stepped out on the streets of Christchurch

120 years ago with the community

recognising the need and responding.

“Just as Nurse Maude has always been

a large part of the community, so the

community has been such a large part

of Nurse Maude,” says sue Bramwell,

general manager of marketing for Nurse

Maude.

That partnership with the community

continues today through its support of

Nurse Maude’s hospice shops, Maudes

on Trade Me and key sponsorships which

include harcourts holmwood.

harcourts holmwood has been,

literally, behind Nurse Maude for

more than seven years now, with its

sponsorship of an initial five cars now

increased to more than 30.

every year sales consultants from

harcourts holmwood are clocking up

millions of kilometres across the greater

Christchurch and Canterbury region.

The Nurse Maude cars are on the road

seven days a week, delivering nursing

care across Canterbury and the chances

are when you see one of Nurse Maude’s

distinctive white cars on the road that the

back window will be carrying the name

and photo of a sales consultant from the

harcourts holmwood franchise.

With the agents’ photo, name and

contact details in the rear window, both

harcourts holmwood and Nurse Maude

are benefiting from the partnership and

Bramwell says mutual benefit is what a

good sponsorship agreement is all about.

“For us it’s essential support for Nurse

Maude, for harcourts holmwood it’s

a very effective way of letting people

know that the company not only cares

about supporting the community it does

business with, it is actually doing so,” says

Bramwell.

harcourts holmwood has found

that people like the fact that the sales

consultants they list their home with are

donating a significant amount of money

to Nurse Maude every year.

playing a key part in helping Nurse

Maude care for the people of Canterbury

doesn’t just start and stop with Nurse

Maude’s cars however.

harcourts holmwood’s support went

above and beyond during the earthquakes

when its sales consultants turned out

to help deliver water, portable toilets

and blankets to Nurse Maude’s most

vulnerable clients.

It also has regular clothing drives for

the Nurse Maude hospice shops and

gathers donations from its events.

“Individually and collectively the

people of harcourts holmwood have

contributed a great deal to the work of

Nurse Maude,” says Bramwell.

“It’s an enduring sponsorship of which

they are justifiably proud and we are very

fortunate to have.”

Nurse Maude COMMuNITY ParTNersHIPs

Perfect synergy

in sponsorship

There are some partnerships that just make perfect sense, and the one

between eCoCentral and Nurse Maude would be one of those.

WheN Nurse Maude started

Maudes on Trade Me, selling almost

everything from furniture to fine

jewellery to raise money for its nursing

services it soon ran out of storage

space.

“In the past a lack of space meant

that Maudes on Trade Me, had often

been unable to take large volumes of

donated goods,” says sue Bramwell,

general manager marketing for Nurse

Maude.

With the considerable resources of

eCoCentral now behind it, however,

Maudes on Trade Me is able to clear

entire house lots, moving the larger

items through the eCoshop on

Blenheim road.

The partnership has been a great

success with Maudes on Trade Me now

able to clear entire house lots and take

in a much broader range of furniture

and whiteware.

“people can still drop smaller items

off to any of our hospice shops,” says

Bramwell, “but we can now go out and

collect house lots of saleable furniture

and whiteware if people want to email

us or give us a call.”

For Judi sefton, Chief executive

of eCoCentral and Jim Magee,

Chief executive of Nurse Maude,

the partnership simply makes sense,

allowing a wide range of goods to be

recycled and sold to support Nurse

Maude’s services rather than be

dumped.

“eCoCentral is all about maximising

the volume of goods that can be

recycled and minimising landfill,” says

sefton, “and to be able to do that while

helping raise money for Nurse Maude

can only be a good thing.”

“The partnership between

eCoCentral and Nurse Maude

clearly demonstrates the huge value

the business community can bring

to organisations such as ours,” says

Bramwell.

Those who need to downsize, clear

some space or simply see unwanted

furniture and household goods to

benefit the wider community rather

than just be dumped see Maudes on

Trade Me as the ideal home for those

items.

For Nurse Maude it means much

needed financial support for nursing

services at a time of increasing demand,

while eCoCentral is all about caring

for the community through recycling

and reducing landfill.

“ecoCentral and Nurse Maude

talk about caring for the people of

Canterbury together and that is exactly

what’s happening here,” says Bramwell.

“everyone is benefiting.”

With the considerable

resources of eCoCentral

now behind it, Maudes on

Trade Me is able to clear

entire house lots, moving

the larger items through

the eCoshop on

Blenheim road.

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

To enSure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can calculate

the required air exchange for your building

requirement. Smooth-Air offers a wide range of

ventilation equipment, from air vents to ducting

for fans, for both the commercial and domestic

markets. They have an extensive range of fans

and ventilation components in-store but they

can also provide innovative solutions tailored to

differing requirements.

VenTILATIon

This includes both the exchange of air to the

outside as well as circulation of air within the

building. It is one of the most important factors

for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality in

buildings.

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered

and warmed air in winter creates a healthy

environment in which to live and work. In case

of poor or insufficient air intake from outside,

the oxygen content decreases, humidity and

dustiness levels increase. If exhaust ventilation

is not provided or it is not effective, polluted air,

smells, humidity and harmful substances are not

removed.

Low oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes

stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel

drowsy. Invisible harmful substances like a

high content of dust and tobacco smoke are

harmful and can cause various diseases. even

bad smells can cause discomfort or irritate the

nervous system. In summer, it’s easy to open

windows for cross ventilation, however as winter

approaches, we start to shut up out houses to

trap in the heat and as a result, air quality can

decline.

It is therefore very important to ensure good

air quality indoors through adequate ventilation.

Liposomal Vitamin C Offers

More health Benefits

Liposomal vitamin C is a technological breakthrough and may offer

incredible health benefits.

vitamin C is a vital antioxidant nutrient

that plays a critical role in the immune

function. White blood cells depend upon

vitamin C in order to survive and withstand

the attack of pathogens and free radicals.

environmental toxins damage cells that

leads to disease but vitamin C and other

antioxidants can neutralize this damage.

vitamin C does not directly attack cancer

cells but helps keep the immune system

strong. The immune system fights cancer

cells with hydrogen peroxide, a natural type

of chemotherapy to destroy the cancer cells.

vitamin C may help prevent one of our

worst diseases and many researchers believe

it to be a useful part of a comprehensive

cancer treatment protocol.

vitamin C also has many other important

roles in the body. It is a major constituent in

the production of collagen, ligaments, bones,

discs, tendons and skin. It has been shown to

improve the healing process of burns, cuts,

wounds, sprains/strains and broken bones as

well as reduce inflammation and pain. It is

known to support cardiovascular function,

blood flow and keep the blood vessels strong

but flexible. vitamin C has numerous other

health benefits including supporting lung

function, balanced blood sugar levels and

eye health.

vitamin C cannot be produced in the

body but must come from our diet. our

bodies require much more vitamin C

than ever before due to our more stressful

lifestyle and toxic environment. Many

researchers believe it is impossible to obtain

enough vitamin C in a normal healthy diet.

Most oral vitamin C supplements are

believed to have an absorption rate of as low

as 20%. This is due to vitamin C being water

soluble and our cell membranes being made

up of fat and the fact that water and fat don’t

mix.

Liposomal vitamin C is made by

combining essential phospholipid fatty acids

with vitamin C to form nano-size particles

that can easily pass through the digestive

system into the bloodstream and into the

cells. The absorption rate is over 90% and

liposomal vitamin C is easily stored in the

body for use when required.

Liposomal vitamin C is a technological breakthrough. Most oral vitamin C

supplements have an absorption rate as low as 20%. Liposomal vitamin C has

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical sense in sydenham sees clients with a range

of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and senior clients

visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

PhysiotheraPist ietje van

stolk suggests that a major part of the

pain could be due to muscle pain rather

than simply arthritis. “even if an x-ray

shows arthritis, the reason for the pain

may be the muscles around the joint,”

she explains. The images show how

a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front

of the shoulder and a muscle knot all the

way near the groin can give an ache in

the knee (especially at night in bed).

ietje recalls one case where an 89

year old client with severe arthritis who

walked with a stick, told her, “i will

end up in a wheelchair, i cannot put

any weight through my right leg due to

pain in my hip and buttock”. “Within

4 treatments, she was walking with

her stick but without the severe pain,”

says ietje. “The arthritis was one of the

factors that made her muscles spasm but

the other was that older people move

less and the flexed position the hip is

in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could

have been “given up on” or told to live

with the pain, she made a difference to

her health and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can

be the reason for your knee pain or

your shoulder pain and the same few

treatments could make a huge difference

for you.

at Physical sense, hands-on

techniques (massage and triggerpoint

deactivation techniques) are used

to release the muscles. The client

also gets a home exercise program

designed to mobilize and stretch the

joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength

and balance. They teach a movement

sequence that stretches the joint in all

directions whilst the client is able to lie

safely on their bed, perfect for older or

in many cases having the muscles

the problem. if severe arthritis is the

underlying cause, some maintenance

often more affordable and, for older

patients, better tolerated than surgery. in
