Bid to beat bus lounge problems

Call for

more police

presence

• By Emily O’Connell

MORE SOLUTIONS to the

troublesome bus lounge in

Riccarton will be thrashed out

tonight.

The lounge on the corner of

Riccarton Rd

and Division St

has been plagued

with youth issues

since it opened in

December 2015.

A working

party consisting

of board members,

business and

landowners, police,

community

Helen

Broughton

groups and residents’ association

representatives have made recommendations

for the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board to consider.

Tonight the community board

will again discuss the problem

– with a call for more police presence

in the area.

Community board deputy

chairwoman Helen Broughton

said the recommendation of

continued police presence would

solve the problem. “We did that

with the bus exchange in the city

in about 2003. It’s a standard

problem with bus exchanges,” she

said.

BEHAVIOUR: The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board will discuss options at their meeting tonight to solve the ongoing

anti-social behaviour at the Riccarton bus lounge.

Constable Aaron Thorn agreed

additional police presence would

help but said resourcing is the

problem.

“In a perfect world we would

be able to supply an officer there

around the clock but we just

can’t,” he said.

Constable Thorn said in the past

they had tasked certain units to

be in the area in high peak times

which did make a big difference.

His preferred option would be

crime prevention through environmental

design. That would be

the beautification of the street, setting

up things to help like maybe a

couple extra cafes.

Constable Thorn also said the

crime around the Riccarton bus

lounge hasn’t been so bad this

winter but predicts they will see a

rise as the nights get warmer.

Other recommendations made

Don’t compromise

on looks.

Regain your hearing without worrying. House of

Hearing offers a range of audiological services and

technology that is nearly invisible and can help you

with hearing loss.

$1,001 off virtually invisible

hearing aids *

Hurry, offer limited to ten callers per

clinic, use the code word $1,001 off to

ensure you don’t miss out! T&C’s apply.

Hearing clinic.

by the working party are a bylaw,

extending bus lounge closing

times and removing the free

Ms Broughton said she thinks

most of the recommendations

will be put forward for further

consideration.

News.............................3, 11, 17

WITH ANY luck a concrete

plan will come out of tonight’s

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board meeting over

the Riccarton bus lounge.

It has been a magnet for trouble

since it opened. As we report on

page 1, a number of possible solutions

will be put to community

board members and other interested

parties like the police.

There has been a call for more

police visibility but the reality is

the police can’t be everywhere.

Also at tonight’s meeting, the

fate of silver birch trees in Rempstone

Drive, Halswell, is up for

decision. Residents have been trying

to get rid of them for years and

this is almost their final chance.

But a city council staff recommendation

says they shouldn’t

get the chop. A tough one for the

community board to make a call

on.

GENERAL ELECTION 2017 – MEET THE CANDIDATES

Ilam electorate

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

EMERGENCY EYE

SURGERY FOR JESS

Meet “Jess” an 8 year old black and

white moggy with real attitude,

who recently flew down from

Nelson to see Dr Steve Heap for

emergency surgery on her left eye.

Her primary vet at Alabama Vets,

had seen her a week earlier for a

painful superficial ulcer ( probably

from a cat scratch injury). Jess

was very hard to examine so

was started on topical eye

ointment and anti-inflammatory

medication. Jess was otherwise

well. She returned 2 days later as

her owners couldn’t medicate

the eye either. By this stage her

left eye was producing a bloody

infected discharge, had swelled

up and the ulcer had grown in

size. Her vet added in antibiotic

tablets and more medication

for inflammation, swelling

and pain but the next day the

ulcer looked no better. Jess

needed to be sedated as the

vet couldn’t examine this eye

with her awake. Her eye was

stained with fluorosein( as can

be seen in the attached photo)

and had become non healing

and so given the difficulty

in medicating Jess it was thought a better

way to go was surgery in Christchurch with

DrSteve Heap.

So Jess flew to Steve and was operated on

immediately to prevent the eye collapsing

and impaired vision. Steve performed

a lamellar keratectomy to remove the

dead, soft, spongy tissue on edges of the

deep stromal corneal ulcer. A conjunctival

flap was sutured over the large defect

to allow the perfect environment for

healing, meaning a good blood supply and

protection from environmental allergens.

Due to the difficulty in checking the healing

progress of Jess’s eye it was thought a good

idea to board her at McMaster & Heap vets

until Steve was happy that the ulcer was

healing. As we were still unable to get near

her eye to apply drops, long acting injections

were given for ease and for her comfort.

Needless to say she needs a head collar worn

to stop her irritating her eye, undoing all

Steve’s good work.

So far so good 4 days out from her surgery.

She is eating up a storm and feisty again

which means she’s back to her happy self.

Steve has given the all clear and she flies

home on Friday to her eagerly awaiting,

doting parents.

Steve sees at least 10 eye referrals daily and

many of these patients end up needing

surgery. Eye injuries can’t wait if the end

result is to save the eye and Steve will often

come into the clinic on his days off to see

emergency cases. The take home message

here is don’t wait with eye problems – get

them looked at early by your vet, as two eyes

are always better than one!!

Ilam electorate

David Lee - Green

Party

David is a native Cantabrian

with strong roots in

Ilam.

Connection and connectedness

are fundamental

to his vision for a better

Christchurch and a better

New Zealand.

A career urban planner,

David understands how

the physical world fosters

and sustains personal and

community wellbeing. Relationships

with our environment,

and connection to

the world at large, provide a

sense of identity, affiliation,

and belonging.

As MP for Ilam, David

will get Canterbury back

onto the government’s

agenda. Rebuilding critical

infrastructure and services

for a 21st-century city –

and beyond, investment

in transport networks and

clean water are essential for

Cantabrians to enjoy the

standard of living that all

New Zealanders deserve.

In central and local

government roles David

has been responsible for

environmental policy and

transport planning.

He is currently an elected

representative, leading

climate change, technology,

innovation and enterprise –

the way forward to address

environmental sustainability.

Raf Manji -

Independent

It’s been my privilege

to serve you as a local

councillor since 2013.

Much has been achieved

in that time but we are

still far from securing the

thriving 21st-century city

we envisaged back in

2011.

It’s been five years

since the blueprint and it’s

time for a reset and new

leadership.

You have two votes to

cast this election – one

for the party you want to

lead the next Government

and one for the person

you think can best

represent Ilam and

Christchurch’s interests in

Parliament.

As an independent I

will be free to focus on

local issues, such as water

quality, transport, health

and housing, as well as

continuing to make sure

the next Government

finishes the rebuild job

properly.

Christchurch needs a

strong, independent voice

in Wellington,

and someone who can

work with the next

Government.

And that’s why I’m

asking you to vote for

me as your electorate

candidate for Ilam.

Martin Frauenstein –

Conservative

Martin settled in Wellington

New Zealand in

1996.

Since 2011 he and his

wife have lived in the

Ilam electorate. He was a

solutions architect at the

CDHB for four and a half

years, and has since reestablished

his IT consultancy.

Martin holds a strong

sense of justice, and the

belief that offenders should

be held accountable for

their actions while being

rehabilitated to be

reintegrated as productive

members of society.

He has been an active

volunteer with Corrections

since 2012.

He holds the preservation

of life and strong

families dear. As a pro-life

advocate, supports the 40

Days for Life movement.

Voting, is a cornerstone

of democracy – the

voice of the people.

The Conservative Party

principle of binding

citizens-initiated referenda

therefore resonates

strongly with him.

The Conservative principles

of democracy, family

and justice offer voters the

chance to “hit the reset

New Zealand.

Port Hills electorate

Nuk Korako – National

As a born and bred

Cantabrian, it’s been a

real privilege to serve as a

National List MP based in

the Port Hills and spend

the past three years

connecting with

communities and

becoming immersed in the

issues, opportunities and

challenges you all face.

I’ve established strong

links across Christchurch

and remain as passionate as

ever about representing the

electorate and working hard

to provide a better life with

Ruth Dyson – Labour

I am an energetic and

passionate person who

listens, works hard and gets

things done.

I have a track record

of advocating for my

constituents and our

communities and

supporting people in

difficult times.

We have a strong

economy in New Zealand

but we have a social

deficit.

We need a government

with priorities to invest

in health, housing,

education and the

Those are my priorities.

We have the highest suicide

rate in the country but we

not seen the investment

handled more than 500

constituent cases and inquiries

and have hosted more

than 100 Ministerial and

MP visits to bring highlevel

attention to local issues.

Before getting involved in

politics, I owned and operated

businesses in the tourism

industry and was active

in community leadership

roles. My family have lived

in the Port Hills for more

than six generations, and

my wife Chris and I, and

our four sons, continue that

legacy today.

in mental health that our

residents deserve.

We have seen degrading

rivers and lakes – and a

“wadeable” water quality

target set by National.

We can do better. We

can have investment which

makes a real difference in

people’s lives – so they can

have a warm, dry home, a

high quality education in

their local school, health

services when they need

them and swimmable rivers

and lakes.

That’s the sort of country

I want to leave for our

children and grandchildren.

We need

a healthy

environment

for people

and the

economy to

thrive.

The Green

Party wants

to make our

‘100% Pure NZ’ image real again. As

part of a progressive new government

we will clean up our rivers and protect

Canterbury’s aquifers, the source of

our drinking water.

We will use the revenue from a new

charge on nitrogen pollution to help

farmers change the way they farm to

have fewer cows, more forestry, fruit,

vegetable and grain crops.

We will invest in conservation

by doubling the Department of

Conservation’s baseline funding to

take care of our native plants and

wildlife and natural heritage. These

are all issues I have worked hard on in

parliament. Giving your party vote to

the Greens is a vote for a kinder, fairer

society.

To protect our environment and our

economy and for real action on climate

change, I would welcome your party

vote. ​

Tree decision likely tonight

• By Emily O’Connell

JOHN AND Gillian

Gartly’s bureaucratic

nightmare is set to end as

they wait to hear if the 19

silver birch trees on their

Halswell street will stay.

The 10-year process of

seeking approval to cut

them down may be made

at a Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community

Board meeting tonight.

But Mr Gartly isn’t

hopeful the trees will be

cut down as the recommendation

is for the community

board to decline

the request to remove

them.

Mr Gartly described the

whole situation as a “typical

city council farcical,

giving people the concept

they have some say, when

they really don’t, because

the decision is already

made.”

Mr Gartly who has

lived on Rempstone Drive

for nearly two decades,

said the trees cause two

problems for the residents

– they’re a nuisance and

a health risk. He said he

thinks his wife’s allergies

are caused by them.

He also said during the

ISSUE: One of the

silver birch trees on

Rempstone Drive.

WESTERN NEWS

summer the trees shower

seeds all around and

make a mess.

“The trees are now

quite mature silver birch

trees, they’re about 15 to

16m tall. They’re really

an unsuitable tree for a

residential street,” Mr

Gartly said.

Mr Gartly feels as if the

problem is going around

in circles. “The issue is,

the city council will only

entertain the idea of taking

the trees away if people

can actually provide

them with a registered,

medical practitioner’s certificate

that said whatever

they have is a direct cause

of the silver birch trees

and that is a bar that is

too difficult to reach,” Mr

Gartly said.

“The medical practitioners

would always

diagnosis on the basis

of what the patient tells

them and then they’ll

qualify that by saying

this is in accordance with

what the patient said.”

Mr Gartly said there

are two separate issues to

be considered. The first is

whether the trees should

be removed and the

second is if they should

be replaced and if so, by

who?

“The city council would

look more favourably on

the residents replacing the

trees. But let’s face it, they

are city council trees. We

can’t go out there and cut

the things down and because

of their height now

the city council have to issue

themselves a resource

consent to cut the trees

down,” Mr Gartly said.

Rotary tees up stroke donation

SO FAR about 120 people will

be swinging for stroke research

at this year’s Rotary Club of

Avonhead’s annual golf match

in November.

The match will include the

usual festivities of a hole-in-one

competition for a car and a

barbecue afterwards.

Rotary Club of Avonhead

president John Byrne-Winty

said they will donate this year’s

match money to the Rose

Centre for Stroke Recovery and

Research.

“We want to do the best we

can for these people,” Mr Byrne-

Winty said.

He said it was difficult deciding

where the money should go

but they wanted to choose an

organisation which wouldn’t

otherwise get support.

Although the centre is a

Canterbury University entity, it

largely relies on private donations.

Mr Byrne-Winty hopes to

raise around $25,000 and said

they will also donate next year’s

golf match money to the centre.

The centre’s director, Maggie-

Lee Huckabee, was delighted.

“The Rotary Club has supported

us in the past and we

were able to do a lot of research

because of their gift, and so

this will help us continue our

clinical and research work,” Prof

Huckabee said.

She said the money would

go towards buying equipment

like precision scales for further

testing.

She said the centre’s recent

research has found a simple test

can trigger a certain response

to decrease pneumonia rates in

stroke patients.

Prof Huckabee said the Rotary

Club of Avonhead has been

integral to the centre remaining

open and active.

Emma will be on the tenor horn

Toby was also offered soprano

cornet based on his audition. The

national brass band has not included

a student on the cornet for

several years due to the difficulty

of playing the instrument, which

Teachers let pupils lead summit

• By Emily O’Connell

TEACHERS enjoyed seeing

children become the tutors

at the first ever pupil-led

education summit in Hornby on

Wednesday.

As part of the Manaiakalani

Outreach programme, 120 pupils

from six schools, which are

part of the Uru Manuka cluster,

gathered at Hornby Primary

School.

The year 4 to 6 pupils from

Hornby Primary, St Bernadette’s,

South Hornby, Sockburn, Gilberthorpe

and Yaldhurst Model

schools rotated around six different

workshops, each lasting

45min.

The focus of the summit was

on digital technology and the

pupils taught each other about

coding, robotics, blogging and

other useful online tools.

Hornby Primary School

principal Simon Scott said the

children loved the summit and

behaved so much better when

teaching one another.

He said the best part was that

the information came from a

child’s perspective.

“Often children are the best

teachers. And especially with

technology these days, they

actually probably know more

about it than the adults know

about it,” he said.

Mr Scott hoped to make the

summit an annual occasion.

He said the school would get

feedback from pupils and adapt

that into next year’s summit.

“Hopefully, we can expand on

this. Ideally, we’d like to start

small and grow. Next year we

will be looking to make it a bit

said.

Gilberthorpe School pupil

Siyona Sachdev said she

really liked learning about

robotics and spending time with

children from other schools.

“I enjoy finding out who they

are and what they’re like,” Siyona

said. Her favourite part of the

summit was discovering the

Russley School to turn out in

the hundreds for Augustine

• By Emily O’Connell

HUNDREDS OF children aged

between five and 13-years-old

will take the stage next week

as part of Russley School’s

production of Augustine.

The musical follows the journey

of a girl trying to find her

identity while being challenged

by good, evil and everything in

between.

Travelling with her throughout

the show will be more than

200 singers and dancers.

The production was written

and directed by Russley School

teacher Chris Walker and will

feature 450 pupils.

“This show’s characters

include gun-toting bandits,

dancing leprechauns, singing senoritas

and, of course, a masked

hero,” said Mr Walker.

He also wrote and directed the

last school-wide production, Pirate

Story. Russley School stages

a production every three years.

Said Mr Walker: “The standards

we set may seem ambitious

for primary-aged children but

Russley kids are so enthusiastic,

so dedicated, plus they’re having

so much fun.”

Year 8 pupil Christine Martin

has a lead role as the Duchess.

“She’s an intimidating character

and a little mean – I’m enjoying

playing the role,” Christine

production of Augustine.

said.

“Rehearsing has been full-on.

The upside has been the younger

students treating us kind of like

stars. They run up to us in the

playground and say ‘oh, you’re

so good at acting’. That’s been

super nice,” she said.

Russley School principal Greg

Lewis said it’s fantastic seeing

pupils nail choreography they’ve

been struggling with.

Mr Lewis said the school

could not attempt such a largescale

production without community

support.

“Russley parents and staff have

worked tirelessly building props

and sourcing costumes. The

success of the show will be in no

small part down to them,” Mr

Lewis said.

•Augustine will be

performed on September

20 and 21 at The Aurora

Centre. Tickets cost $20

per person and can be

purchased at the school

ACHIEVEMENT: Enviro Snap app creators Sarah Williams,

Leonie Stauder and Paris Wardle.

Girls draw attention with

rubbish collection app

YEAR 9 students from Villa

Maria College have created an

app which has garnered the

attention of CORE Education

and the city council.

Sarah Williams, Leonie Stauder

and Paris Wardle made the app

Enviro Snap.

It encourages students to

collect rubbish and take a photo

of it to record how many pieces

they have collected, with the

leading school winning prizes for

their efforts.

The students also made the

finals of the national Tech Girl

Superhero competition but

misses out on an award.

The Tech Girl Superhero

competition is run by not-forprofit

organisation, Tech Girls

Movement.

The organisation’s goal is to

create more diverse workplaces.

CORE Education is trialling

the app at Gilberthorpe School

and the city council’s learning

environment team is also

interested in the app.

The students used their own

money to create the app but

need $250 in sponsorship to help

register it on all major platforms

for the year.

Tech enthusiast makes tracks for model show

STOKED: Celyn Bennet with his Boggy Creek model train layout.

PHOTO: ROY SINCLAIR

• By Roy Sinclair

AVONHEAD teenager Celyn

Bennet is an unrepentant railway

devotee.

He best expresses his interest

by creating model railway

layouts.

Owing to space limitations,

two of his projects are set up

outdoors. Both layouts are based

on the popular HO scale or a

ratio of 1:87.

One of his layouts is ‘Boggy

Creek’, which Celyn exhibited at

last year’s BIG Model Train Show

in Christchurch.

It represents a one-time bush

tramway associated with a

pioneer New Zealand sawmill.

He said he “liked the look of”

the layout’s integrated sawmill

building and rustic steam shovel.

The second layout is ‘Tussock

Flats’, a work in progress for this

year’s show.

It represents a typical 1950s

New Zealand country railway

station with sidings and a main

line.

Celyn is involved with the

Canterbury Railway Society at

Ferrymead and the Mainline

Steam Trust at Sockburn.

“The catalyst for modelling was

from watching James May’s Toy

Stories television programme,

where he talked about his fascination

with well-known model

train brands, such as Hornby,”

Celyn said.

He utilises technology when

designing and building rolling

stock or line side structures.

He will compile items on his

computer and send them as a 3D

model to his 3D printer.

The printer then builds the

solid item in fine layers of plastic.

Celyn sources plans from the

NZ Model Railway journal and

compiles his computer model

utilising AutoCAD Fusion 360

software, which is free for students.

The Tussock Flats layout will be

operated by Hornby elink from

his PC or an app on his smart

phone.

•Meet Celyn and his

Tussock Flats layout at the

BIG Model Train Show on

October 7 and 8 at Pioneer

Leisure Centre, 75 Lyttelton

St, Somerfield. The theme at

this year’s show will be youth

and technology

Pride of Cobham Intermediate pupils on show in Disney epic

LION KING: Cobham

Intermediate School pupils

are busy preparing for their

production of Disney’s The

Lion King Junior.

• By Emily O’Connell

COBHAM Intermediate is

putting on a production of

Disney’s The Lion King Junior.

The show, which has a cast

of 80 students, is directed

by Mandy Roberts, musical

directed by Philippa Chilvers

and choreographed by Holly

Smitheram.

Year 8 students Maggie

Harris and Lily Barrowcliffe

both act in the production

and describe it as a “heartwarming,

entertaining family

show which will blow you away

and take you on a journey

through the circle of life.”

“From a student’s point of

view, we personally think this

has helped us break out of our

shell and has given us a great

confidence boost. From the

outstanding performing, to the

gorgeous set and costumes, this

show is something you should

definitely add on to your

calendar,” Maggie said.

Students are taking part in

all aspects of the show – from

performing on stage to working

in teams on make-up, set

painting, sound, lighting and

front-of-house.

The production is being

held at the school hall from

September 25-28.

•Tickets are $20 per adult

and $15 for children under

the age of 16. Tickets can

be purchased from the

school the website –

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

BUTTERFLIED LAMB LEG

WITH ROSEMARY AND

GARLIC

Ingredients

1 bunch Flat leaf (Italian) parsley

1 bunch Fresh mint

2 medium Red onions, sliced

1 Butterflied boneless leg of

lamb, approx. 150-200g per

person

3 cloves Garlic, finely chopped

3 Tbsp Chopped rosemary

2 Tbsp Olive oil

1 cup White wine

Directions

ICEBERG LETTUCE,

WALNUT AND BLUE

CHEESE SALAD

Ingredients

1 Iceberg lettuce

1 Walnuts, toasted

1 Blue cheese

1 Walnut oil

1 Cider vinegar

Directions

Remove the outer leaves of a

small iceberg lettuce. Cut the

head into four wedges.

Toast some walnuts.

Crumble some good blue

cheese and, using the white bits

from the outer edges.

Make a creamy dressing by

blending them with walnut oil

and a little cider vinegar (olive

oil is fine if you don’t have

walnut).

Sprinkle the walnuts and the

blue cheese crumbs over the

crisp lettuce wedges and spoon

over the dressing.

Preheat oven to 220 deg C.

In a roasting tray, lay out the

parsley and mint, then add the

sliced onions.

Place the butterflied lamb leg

on top of the onions, fat side up

(there should be a thin layer of

fat on one side).

Score the lamb on the side

with the fat in large diagonal

shapes.

Sprinkle over a large pinch of

sea salt, and crack over plenty of

black pepper.

Rub the garlic into the slits

where you’ve scored it, then

sprinkle over the rosemary and

rub that in too. Drizzle over the

olive oil and rub into the skin.

Place the lamb on a high rack

in the oven and grill for 20-

25min (depending on its size)

until the skin crisps and goes

golden.

Remove from oven and add

wine to the tray.

Return the lamb to the oven,

but move it down from the top

shelf to the centre of the oven.

Roast for a further 20min.

Remove from oven, rest for

5-10min, then slice into thick

strips. Serve on a plate of fresh

parsley and sprinkle with

pomegranate seeds. Use the pan

juices and onion to make a gravy

if you wish.

Golden Healthcare Group’s

position 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 providing

hotel-style accommodation

for those residents who enjoy

being part of a vibrant, social

community.

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

121 Skyhawk Road

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.

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, and 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.

Golden Healthcare employs 260 at its

facilities which care for about 350 residents.

All staff are highly trained, experienced,

and qualified in their roles.

Respite care is also provided at all

facilities.

Methyl B-12

Research supports

eye health

Emerging research has shown as many as 50 per cent of older

adults and as many as 25 per cent of younger adults are deficient

in vitamin B12.

B12 is essential for energy production,

cell health, regulation of mood and

sleep cycles, nerve health and repair and

prevention of homocysteine - a serious

cardiovascular risk factor that is known

to cause damage and plaque in the blood

vessels. It can also increase the chances

of a stroke. Harvard researchers found

a 34 per cent decrease risk of vision loss

in a study of participants aged 40+ who

supplemented with B12. Another study

linked a higher risk of hearing loss in

subjects in their 60s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

seems to be due to our body’s inability

to absorb it as we age, as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication and other drugs further reduce

B12 absorption.

The good news is B12 in the form of

Methylcobalamin sublingual tablets that

are dissolved in the mouth and thru

bypassing the digestive tract have been

shown to effectively raise B12 levels in the

body.

Nutritional researchers have discovered a

range of nutrients that are essential for eye

health. Some of the most essential nutrients

that have been shown to protect and even

improve eye function are:

Selenium, is a trace mineral that is low

in N.Z. soils and therefore in many of

our foods. Researchers believe selenium

may help prevent cataracts, macular

degeneration (the leading cause of impaired

vision in older people) and may also

improve dry eyes and general eye health.

Zinc is a mineral that a large percentage

of the population are low in. Zinc has been

shown to help protect the eyes from the

damaging effects of light as well as slow

vision loss due to macular degeneration.

Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Betacarotene

(Pro-vitamin A) and Copper have

potent antioxidant ability and help protect

the eyes from damage

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing

nutrients that have been shown in landmark

research to not only provide potent eye

protection but may even help reverse

some of the signs of age-related macular

degeneration (AMD).

Bilberry and Blackcurrant, high in potent

antioxidants may help protect the lens and

retina from damage and reduce the risk of

cataracts. They also may help improve blood

supply to the eye, strengthen the small

capillaries of the eye and may help improve

night vision, may alleviate many eye

ailments including eye fatigue that may be

Eyebright may help normalise eye

pressure and reduce eye allergies.

Taurine is an amino acid that is essential

for correct eye function. It may also have a

detoxifying affect on the eye.

Vitamin B2 may help alleviate eye fatigue,

bloodshot eyes and maintain good vision.

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection.

It provides many nutrients, is rich in

oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) that

are potent antioxidants that may protect

eyesight.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

New hope for patients

suffering from MS,

strokes or spinal injuries

For those seeking relief from pain caused by injury, and other physical and mental

health issues, Chinese health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao offers a method of treatment

that brings fast, and often immediate results.

WESTERN NEWS

Special offer for SepTeMBer - if

you have suffered a stroke, spinal injury

or have MS, then this article is for you.

A graduate of Beijing Medical College, Dr Lan

established an acupuncture clinic in Christchurch

in 1993. As she continued her research and medical

practice, she discovered a reflexology network on

the human body, an exciting new discovery that

became the foundation of her new treatment –

acupuncture without needles.

Instead of needles, Dr Lan uses a blunt instrument

to stimulate the reflexology points on the face

or other parts of the body. When the point is

stimulated by pressure, a message is sent to the

repair centre to promote healing. As Dr Lan

explains, the treatment increases energy, which

boosts the body’s healing system.

The body will heal injuries naturally, she says, but

that is a slow process. In addition, many people will

start to use their injured part, for example a knee

or an ankle, before it is properly healed, therefore

prolonging the injury and even causing chronic

pain.

With her powerful treatment, results are produced

very quickly – even instantly.

She likens it to the differences between the

power of a car – natural healing, of an aeroplane

– other types of natural healing, and of a rocket –

reflexology network.

It brings fast results because it is a very precise

treatment, Dr Lan says. She uses it to treat people

of all ages with many different types of pain in all

parts of the body, including arthritic pain, MS,

and pain from injury, and there are no side-effects.

Depression and anxiety, often the result of ongoing

low energy, can also be overcome with Dr Lan’s

treatment.

Dr Lan’s treatment can give amazing, instant

improvement for muscle weakness and numbness

caused by nerve damage such as MS, stroke

and spinal injury. Search You Tube for Dr Lan

reflexology to see lots of instant results videos.

Dr Lan has published a book, Dr Lan’s Reflexology

Network, which introduces the treatment and

explains how it works. Her website, www.

drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes treatment

videos, where people who have had the treatment

speak about the fast relief it has brought them.

Dr Lan is offering 10 patients of stroke, 10

patients of MS and 10 patients of spinal injury

half price for their rehabb. Phone 323 4168,

mobile 027 231 8388.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Anxiety and breathing

– are they related?

When good breathing goes bad

Have you experienced any of these

breathing difficulty symptoms?

• Disturbed sleep

• Erratic heartbeats*

• Feeling anxious and uptight

• Upset gut/nausea

• Chest pains*

• Shattered confidence

• Tired all the time

• Achy muscles and joints

• Dizzy spells* or feeling spaced out

• Irritability or hypervigilance

• Frequent yawning and sighing

• Breathing discomfort*

• Pins and needles

• Feelings of ‘air hunger’

*Check with your doctor if you experience

these symptoms.

These questions are asked on

the website www.BradCliff.com.

BradCliff was started by North Island

physiotherapists Dinah Bradley and

Tania Cliffton Smith, who specialise in

hyperventilation and anxiety treatment.

Their website notes one in 10 people

experience some form of breathing pattern

disorder or chronic over breathing at some

time in their lives, resulting in a range

of disturbing or frightening symptoms

puzzling to you and your doctor.

You feel unwell because of overbreathing,

and overbreathing makes you feel unwell.

A vicious cycle is established, which is a

major stress all by itself. This is experienced

currently by many Cantabrians, says Ietje

van Stolk of Physical Sense Gym & Physio.

As she explains, it is normal to breathe fast

and in the upper chest when we are in danger

and fight or flight is needed. We know all

about that here, due to the earthquakes.

Normally, once the danger is gone, our

breathing should restore itself within a

couple of days. We would then be using the

diaphragm for our normal nonstressed

breathing. We have been having a hard

time restoring our breathing pattern

here in Canterbury because every time

our body tried to achieve that, the next

aftershock came rolling in. Even though the

aftershocks have significantly diminished,

some people’s fight or flight mode

breathing has become chronic, or habitual,

Ietje says. And, as she points out, using the

wrong muscles for breathing means these

overworked muscles cause headaches, neck

pain and jaw pain.

With fast upper chest breathing, sighing

and yawning, the resulting disturbance

of our oxygen and carbon dioxide levels

can give us the feeling we are not able to

control our own body. One moment you

are feeling fine, next moment your chest

feels tight, you feel out of breath, your

heart beats erratically and you may even

experience dizziness and/or tingling.

Very scary if you do not understand what

is happening. No wonder this causes

anxiety. Not being the boss over our own

body makes us anxious, anxiety feeds the

faulty breathing pattern, and so it goes on.

The BradCliff physiotherapists have

established a national network of

practitioners that regularly train together

and can help you overcome this problem.

Physical Sense is part of that network.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz
