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.

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.

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.

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

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 timeconsuming

and costly.’’

•Anyone with information

about the thefts can phone

363 7400. Alternatively,

information can also be

reported anonymously to

Crimestoppers on 0800 555

In Brief

HALL DECISION

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board has approved

the demolition of the Yaldhurst

Memorial Hall. It is not economically

feasible to repair and

strengthen the facility after it

received damage in the February

22, 2011, earthquake. The board

decided the memorial plaques

will be removed from the building

and put into secure storage

until the community and the

city council deliver a future plan

for their preservation and display.

It has requested proceeds

from any land sale be retained

for use in the Yaldhurst rural

community as the city council’s

contribution towards a local

facility, including reinstatement

of the memorial features.

FUNDING GRANTS

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board has approved $450

towards Halswell’s Nomads

United players Jazmine Tufau,

Sophie Barnes, Annie Foote,

Taylah Holdem and Kate

Taylor to attend the Kanga Cup

tournament in Canberra from

June 30 to July 9. The Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board has approved $2700 for

Gilberthorpe School towards the

purchase and installation of a

basketball hoop from its discretionary

response fund.

$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

WISH: Maddie Collins, 13,

with her dog Coco. Maddie

needs to travel to the

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,” she said.

She said Maddie had been

finding things tough, as her

treatment meant she missed a

lot at her school and couldn’t do

many things with her friends.

“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 is incredible. When

she gets on her pony everything

is right for her, even though I

know how much energy it takes

her to ride. Her inner strength

puts some of us to shame sometimes,”

she said.

Solution in the works

for Rapaki Rd parking

• By Caitlin Miles

A SOLUTION to parking woes

on Rapaki Rd may be presented

to the public in August.

Parking on Rapaki Rd near

the Rapaki Track has been an

issue for residents for some time.

The road leads to Rapaki Track,

which is popular with walkers,

runners and mountain bikers.

In November, the city council

proposed to ban parking on

Rapaki Rd due to ongoing

concern from residents about

safely accessing the street and

their driveways. A parking ban

on one side of Erewhon Tce was

also included in the plan because

cars are often parked on that

street if Rapaki Rd is full.

City council acting head of

transport Steffan Thomas said

submissions on the project

showed concerns over how the

surrounding roads, such as

Vernon Tce, would be impacted

by the ban.

As a result, the city council held

off putting restrictions in place

until city council staff could work

out a plan for the surrounding

streets.

PARKING CONCERNS: A new plan to ban parking like this on

Rapaki Rd is expected to be presented to the public in August.

City council staff are currently

preparing a proposal on parking

restrictions for Rapaki Rd and

the surrounding areas and

plan to put it out for public

consultation in August.

City council staff went

through the feedback from the

community and are working on a

proposal they plan to take out to

public consultation in August.

City council Transport

Operations manager Aaron

Haymes said staff went through

the feedback from submitters

taking into consideration the

concerns on the surrounding

streets.

The city council received 93

submissions on the plans. Sixtysix

supported the idea, 24 were

against and three submissions

were unclear.

Thirty of those submissions,

both for and against the parking

restrictions, were concerned over

the impact on the surrounding

streets, particularly Vernon Tce.

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.

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.

FLAME FILES

Homestead burns down

• By Mark Thomas –

specialist fire investigator

FIRES BEING attended

at the moment are

completely in keeping

with this time of year.

The old “metre heater”

rule was broken in St

Albans St a few weeks ago

where clothing drying

against a wall heater began

to smoulder.

As the time was 5.40am,

the household was in bed

asleep but were alerted by a

working smoke alarm.

Everybody got out and

the house wasn’t badly fire

affected.

You can’t have too many

smoke alarms.

Without them, relatively

minor events like this one

can turn into a complete

disaster.

Some people coming

home in Hoon Hay last

week found their house

completely full of smoke.

An ash bucket had been

smoking away, probably

all day.

Ash can remain hot for

up to five days.

GONE: The old wooden home was destroyed in the

fire last week.

PHOTO: CAITLIN MILES ​

Fire ash needs to be

completely removed from

the house and preferably

scattered in an area that

can’t ignite.

Too many washhouses

and wood sheds have been

lost from this seemingly

unlikely source of fire ignition.

I like grand old

houses. Unfortunately, one

in Kaituna Valley, Banks

Peninsula, burnt down last

week.

Thankfully, the wheelchair-bound

owner was

taken outside early on and

no injury resulted.

But the house is gone.

Rural homes are often

long distances from fire

stations.

What can be a minor

event in town, where the

fire crews are only minutes

away, can be catastrophic

in the country

half an hour from the

closest station.

That’s why we

recommend home

sprinklers, particularly in

rural areas.

They might just save an

irreplaceable homestead.

$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.

Burnside trumps bowls awards

• By Andrew King

BURNSIDE HAS been named

top club at Bowls Canterbury’s

annual awards.

Club president Alan Bryce

said it has been a huge year and

it was nice for members to see

their hard work rewarded.

“We have great

bowlers and coaches

here and it is great

to be recognised,”

he said.

Burnside co-hosted

the World Bowls

Championships

with Bowls Papanui,

year.

Burnside also had a number of

its members honoured with current

sportswoman of the year

and young player of the year.

Bruce finished competing

with the national squad in the

trans-Tasman test series at the

Broadbeach Bowls Club, Gold

Coast, on Friday. She is now

competing in the Gold Coast

multi-nations event, which

finishes tomorrow.

ONE YEAR ago Mitchell

Langley was playing basketball

socially, now he holds a

Canterbury Basketball

Association record

after notching up the

first triple-double in St

Thomas’ of Canterbury

College’s history.

In a recent 76-58

defeat to Burnside

in the under-17a

grade basketball

championship, Langley,

15, racked up an

impressive 14 points, 13

rebounds and 16 blocks.

Not only was it the school’s

first triple-double, it was also

a CBA record, as no-one

had recorded more blocks in

one game, CBA community

basketball manager James

Lissaman said.

Langley said he started the

game slowly but then suddenly

everything fell into place.

“I didn’t really notice the stats

were ticking up like they were.

My teammates just kept me

going, saying keep shooting,

keep blocking,” he said.

Coach Neville Brooker said

it was a massive effort by the

SPORTS

St Thomas basketballer

makes first triple-double

Mitchell

Langley

young man.

“Mitch only started playing

basketball last year after I

approached him to play seeing

he is so tall,” he said.

At 1.95m, Brooker saw

potential in Langley and

pinched him from rugby

league, a sport he had

been playing for the past

10 years.

Langley also plays in

the school’s under-20

basketball team, which

is the top squad, and

last week found out he

has been selected for the

under-17 Canterbury Mainland

South Island team.

“It’s his first year in both

[under-17s and under-20s]

and he has shown signs of

huge potential for the top team

for years to come,” Brooker

said.

The Canterbury team heads to

Westport next month to play a

tournament.

For now, Langley is happy to

play the sport he loves with the

goal of playing professionally in

the future.

“It is my dream to play pro,

but I have to put in a whole lot

of work,” he said.

St Thomas aim to defend shield

• By Andrew King

ST THOMAS will look to

defend the Connetics Shield

for the first time since winning

it off Middleton in round 4.

The shield,

equivalent of the

Ranfurly Shield,

is defended every

plays.

St Thomas will

be without influential

captain Michael

White who

has been ruled out

for the next four

to six weeks with

concussion.

St Thomas had

a bye in round 5,

and will be raring

to go come kick off at 7.30pm,

co-coach Richard Washington

said.

“[Papanui] are a very dangerous

side and have some

extremely talented players and

can beat anybody on their day.

Michael is a huge loss, but it

gives the boys motivation to

play for him and shield,” he said.

“We look forward to a tough

game and know Papanui will

not lie down, they will throw

everything at winning the

shield.”

Last time the two met, St

Thomas eased past with a 3-0

win.

Papanui coach Liam Campfens

said it was time they put

hands on the elusive shield,

which they had 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.

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.

Middleton will take on

struggling Christ’s at 5.45pm

tomorrow after being beaten by

Christchurch Boys’ High 2-1 last

week.

The men from Acacia Ave

have slid from eighth to 10th on

the table after two consecutive

defeats and will be looking to

get back to their winning ways.

Riccarton take on St Bede’s at

4pm and CBHS play Rangiora at

5.45pm.

CBHS’s victory over Middleton

last week pushed them from

ninth to eighth on the table,

while Riccarton lost 6-2 against

Cashmere.

All games will be played at the

Christchurch Football Centre.

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

Keeping our blood pressure (B/P) in the normal range is a positive sign of good health. The higher the B/P above normal the more

likely we may suffer a stroke, aneurysm, organ failure or heart attack. Even moderate elevation of B/P can lead to shortened life

Golden Healthcare Group

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.

The Lady Wigram Retirement Village is

a short stroll from The Landing, the central

retail hub of the Wigram Skies subdivision,

and only a short drive to Hornby Mall, the

Hornby Working Men’s Club and the city.

Lady Wigram Retirement Village is

121 Skyhawk Road

one of eight facilities operated by Golden

Healthcare Group that offer a variety of

residential care services.

The large Christchurch-based group is

a privately owned provider that strives to

support every aspect of aged care.

Rest home care is provided in the Golden

Age Rest Home and Brookhaven Rest

Home, both of which also encompass

retirement villages. Brookhaven also

has a dementia care unit along with the

dedicated Camellia Court, Albarosa, and

Somerfield rest homes. Furthermore,

the Hoon Hay Rest Home is a dedicated

dementia wing, but the Hoon Hay House

on the same site specialises in mental

health.

Within the facilities, there are plenty

of opportunities to create unique

environments for differing requirements

for residents. Nursing care is provided

by registered nurses, regular scheduled

medical appointments and on-call doctors

ensure residents’ health is well monitored.

An activities co-ordinator ensures residents

will never be bored and they participate in

programmed activities, games, sing-alongs

with performances by visiting entertainers,

library book exchange and exercise

programmes. The group has four vans to

utilise for residents outings.

Each facility has its own kitchen and

offers nutritious home-style meals and

baking, and special diets are catered for.

Golden Healthcare employs 260 at its

facilities which care for about 350 residents.

All staff are highly trained, experienced,

and qualified in their roles.

Each facility offers regular resident and

family meetings to ensure feedback is

encouraged, and dementia facilities also

offer educational evening for families to

understand the dementia process. Respite

care is also provided at all facilities.

SENIOR LIVING

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.

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.

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

REAL ESTATE

Dreams are made of this

4 Sunvale Terrace, Cashmere

Auction: Thursday, 15 June 2017 Unless Sold Prior

3 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 2 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room | 2 car-garage | Listing # PI47339

Nestled into a tree-clad 840 sqm section,

it is situated in the Bowenvale Valley, a

short stroll from walking and hiking trails,

yet handy to cafés, supermarkets and the

CBD.

A lovely new kitchen blends traditional

and modern elements, and adjoins an

open-plan living and dining space opening

to a deck with treetop views. Easy flow to

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

there’s another toilet downstairs for guests.

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

Intermediate and Cashmere High, this

could be your dream come true.

Contact me today to ensure you don’t

miss out. For a private viewing phone
