When the 17-year-old is not

busy studying with the aim of

Freedom

camping

issues

back in

Burnside

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FREEDOM camping problems

have flared up again in Burnside.

Residents have been contacting

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board chairman Sam

MacDonald over the increased

number of campers using

Burnside Park.

Concerns have been raised

self-contained vehicles are staying

at the park for more than two

days in a row – going against the

city council’s rules.

Under the city council’s

Freedom Camping Bylaw, selfcontained

vehicles can stay for

up to two nights within a 30 day

period.

But a city council spokeswoman

said no breaches of the bylaw have

been confirmed.

It was made aware of the issue

on February 26 and compliance

officers have been on site to

respond to the complaints.

Mr MacDonald said if freedom

campers are staying at the park,

they need to be operating within

the rules that exist.

THOUSANDS OF people will be pounding

the pavements and roads at the annual

City2Surf on Sunday.

It’s Christchurch’s iconic event, which

The Star has put on for decades.

This year it will be the 45th time the event has been held. It

used to go from the Square out to QE II, but a certain event on

February 22, 2011, changed all of that.

It now goes from Centennial Park and Hansen Park to

Ferrymead.

Each year there is a buzz as thousands gather in the parks

for the challenge that lies ahead – whether it be going as fast

as you can, or simply completing the journey for personal

satisfaction.

On page 11 today, we talk to some of the people taking part.

Campbell, MacDonald clash

over board meeting cancellation

Online post

‘seriously

appalling’

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HIGH-PROFILE community

board members Sam MacDonald

and Aaron Campbell are at

loggerheads again.

This time it is over Mr

MacDonald, who is the

chairman, cancelling the

fortnightly Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

meeting, which was scheduled

for yesterday, due to a lack of

items on the agenda.

In a post online, Mr Campbell

said: “Obviously that is not good,

elected members are well-paid

and residents deserve engaged

politicians.”

Mr MacDonald hit back,

telling Nor’West News it was

“seriously appalling” for him

to effectively say the board is

wasting ratepayers’ money.

“We have never seen the need

to meet for the sake of meeting,

Aaron Campbell

we are outcomes focused . . . for

him to say something like that

is just bizarre,” Mr MacDonald

said.

The board had planned to

discuss removing a cycle lane

and path outside Burnside

High and Christ The King

schools. However, city council

staff needed to collect more

information before presenting a

report.

But the board was scheduled

to meet yesterday to discuss its

Sam MacDonald

submission on the Annual Plan.

It is not the first time there

has been tension between Mr

Campbell and Mr MacDonald.

Mr Campbell previously asked

for a liquor ban at Elmwood

Park, which Mr MacDonald

said was not supported by the

board.

A notice of motion to remove

Mr Campbell as deputy

chairman of the board last year

was accepted by city council chief

executive Karleen Edwards. Mr

Campbell lost the position after

speaking out of turn about water

issues at a city council meeting.

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

members are paid $22,841

annually, and the chairman is

paid $45,681.

“That is big bucks so you have

a right to know what we are

doing,” Mr Campbell said.

Mr MacDonald said there

was no need for yesterday’s

fortnightly meeting.

“The public detests the

sentiment of more and more

council meetings at their cost,

the majority of our board are

professionals who don’t feel the

need to sit around talking in

circles for hours on end.”

However, Mr Campbell said

the board meeting would have

given members an opportunity

to receive correspondence, hear

deputations and bring up issues

in their area.

Mr MacDonald revealed last

month he will be running for a

seat on the city council in the

Waimairi Ward.

Mr Campbell is still

considering whether he will run

for city council.

Taking on the world

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

A PATIENT WITH A BIG HEART

Meet “Lucy”, a courageous 3 year old Staffy

cross who in the past 6 weeks has overcome

many hurdles, but still has a wee way to go.

I first met Lucy at the end of January as a

second opinion. She had been intermittently

unwell for the past month with swallowing

difficulties, coughing, lethargy , pain and

intermittent extremely high temperatures. A

weird clinical picture. She had short courses

of antibiotics and anti inflamatories but still

appeared painful and lethargic and was

deteriorating.

When I first met Lucy, her painfulness struck

me first. I see many uncomfortable patients,

but Lucy was different. She never verbalized

her pain but she was

incredibly tucked up in

the abdomen, walking

slowly and stilted and her

face wore all the pain. She

was brave and lovely to

treat but it was horrible

for me to see her in that

much pain. She was

admitted for a full blood

work up, sufficient pain

medications, intravenous

fluids and xrays..

We got no conclusive

results back from Day 1.

On paper she appeared

healthy but she clearly

wasn’t. Next step was an

ultrasound with Catherine.

Large abdominal lymph nodes measuring up

to 7 cm long were seen dotted throughout.

Catherine wasn’t sure if we may have a

migrating foreign body so it was decided to

open Lucy up. Again no conclusive results

after her exploratory. Kirsty biopsied her

enlarged lymph nodes as a cancerous process

was a possibility. Again we drew blanks as the

lymph node pathology was normal.

Despite our best diagnostic efforts to

find a cause for her unexplained pain and

lethargy, we just had no answers. We were

unsuccessfully managing her pain despite

a myriad of treatment medications. It was

worrying and what was worse was that Lucy

was getting weaker in her hindquarters,

struggling to walk or support her weight.

A contrast CT scan At Pacific Radiology

under sedation was the next diagnostic

tool employed. I was very worried about

spinal cord compression or other diseases

affecting the disc spaces and vertebral bodies.

Interesting findings were seen. Lucy had

large granulomatous masses underneath

a few lumbar vertebrae no doubt causing

compression on her spinal cord, a contributor

to her paralysis. Her vertebral bodies also

looked diseased. Many huge intra-abdominal

lymph nodes were also seen. The scanner

likened it to findings you would see with

Tuberculosis in a person. We also weren’t

expecting her to develop a large pus filled

abscess over her lumbar back that required

surgical draining.

Interestingly Lucy had killed 2 possums a few

months back but after specialized diagnostic

testing for TB on

tissue samples

taken we came up

with blanks. Also

TB hasn’t yet been

isolated in possums

in the Canterbury

area although we

did have her on

TB medication for

several weeks.

As you can see this

case is still providing

challenges for us.

Lucy has since

had more surgery,

ultrasounds, blood

testing and referral

consultations with specialists to try to get a

handle on what caused her pain, CT findings

and paralysis. Our best guess is an inhaled,

migratory Foreign body like a grass seed, that

traveled to beneath her spine somehow. No

other disease process has been found.

The UP side to this story is how Lucy

is handling her immobility and all the

medications she has to consume 2-3 times

daily. She is a terrific dog that has just adapted

to life without walking. She has a ravenous

appetite, appears pain free and happier now

and even wags her tail and twitches and

withdraws her hindlegs. Her improvement is

slow but I guess any disease involving spinal

cord injury takes time to heal. She hasn’t given

up and her dedicated owner hasn’t given up

hope either. Margaret has changed her whole

life this past month to give Lucy the chance to

recover – working from home, learning how

to drain a urinary catheter, managing her care

in terms of massage, reiki, getting her into a

wheelchair – not an easy task when you are

dealing with a 30 kg dog! Amazingly Margaret

has managed all her care from home, which

is better than caged hospital care for Lucy at

this stage.

We all love Lucy at the clinic. We often do

our clinical exams and treatments from the

boot of Margarets car to avoid tiring Lucy.

Our nurses have been patient and gentle to

Lucy and Lucy responds positively to us. We

are ALL hoping and praying for a full recovery.

Follow us on FB to see Lucy’s progress.

Vehicles prevent building shift

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

VEHICLES PARKING over

cones placed out on several Ilam

streets is causing problems for

a company trying to transport

large buildings out of the area.

Laing Properties is in the

process of shifting relocatable

buildings making up the Dovedale

and Kirkwood temporary

villages at Canterbury

University.

But its operations

manager Tim

Pow said vehicles

are ignoring the

Helen

Broughton

cones and parking

over or between

them.

“We can only do

our best but it has always happened

. . . if we have got cars all

down the street it slows us down.

It probably takes us two hours to

get out of the street. If there are

no cars it takes 40 minutes,” he

said.

Mr Pow said the cones need to

be laid out to stop cars parking

on the streets when it is shifting

8m x 8m buildings. Buildings

this size are unable to get past

the parked vehicles on the street.

He said as soon as there is a

vehicle in the way, the building

has to be lifted over the car, or

the company has to stop and ask

residents to move their vehicle –

which slows the process down.

Cones are often placed on

streets including Dovedale Ave,

Solway Ave, Brodie St, Corfe St

and Yaldhurst Rd.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed

there are no rules in the

city’s District Plan to regulate the

relocation of large buildings.

The issue was brought to light

after a complaint was made by

a Parkstone Ave resident when

Laing Properties shifted a large

building at 1.16am on January

25. A Canterbury University

spokeswoman said a communications

and engagement

programme was held notifying

residents the buildings would be

shifted last year.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board deputy chairwoman

Helen Broughton said

she would have thought the lack

of notification on the movement

at 1.16am would have breached

a rule in the District Plan. But a

city council spokeswoman said

under the plan once a vehicle

is moving and driving onto the

roadway it is exempt from the

noise section of the District Plan.

Mr Pow said it wouldn’t

normally notify residents if it

was moving a specific building

– as it had already shifted about

already.

He said most buildings are

shifted after 10pm as required

under the New Zealand Transport

Agency rules. It occasionally

has to move buildings in the

early hours of the morning.

In the case of the complaint,

the driver was required to take

the building down to Temuka

and build the foundations in the

same day.

Because the driver is only

allowed to work 14 hours – the

building needed to be shifted out

at 1am to give the driver enough

time to get to Temuka.

Southern ChiropraCtiC

3 kennedys bush rd, halswell (upstairs)

Don’t put up with back pain

Helping people with back pain and

other spinal issues is behind Southern

Chiropractic owner Andre Grob’s

career choice.

Andre has 18 years of experience

treating people with a range of

back problems and has a deep

understanding of the value and

benefits that a professional

chiropractor can

offer clients who

are suffering from

back pain.

A high percentage

of the patients

Andre treats

at Southern

Chiropractic in

Halswell suffer

from lower back

and neck pain,

followed closely

by mid back pain.

Some pain such

as headaches or shoulder pain can

be referred from the spine and it is all

about finding and treating the source

of the pain, says Andre.

He offers hands-on manipulation of

the spine but also soft tissue massage

which some patients prefer. He also

uses laser treatment to assist with the

traditional approach and an activator

instrument that

can be used for

more precise

adjustment of the

spine.

Chiropractic

treatment not only

relieves pain but,

when patients are

seen regularly, it

can also help their

overall wellness

and health.

“When clients first

come to the clinic

I find out about what the problems is.

The aim is to treat the pain and make

them more comfortable.” Once the

patient’s better, he says it is then up to

them to decide if they want to continue

with further and ongoing treatment

that suits their individual needs.

Chiropractic treatments are listed

overseas as among the top most

beneficial natural therapies, providing

a holistic approach to treating back

pain, says Andre.

“It’s all about what’s best for the

individual client and giving them the

time and care that they need. No

matter what your age I can help with

your back pain.”

So if you are experiencing back pain,

make an appointment with Andre at

Southern Chiropractic.

Southern Chiropractic has recently introduced on-line bookings through the website www.southernchiropractic.co.nz or you can phone Andre on 03 322 1432.

Hello Hornby attracts thousands

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ORGANISERS OF the Hello

Hornby party in the park were

“blown away” by its success.

Thousands of residents

turned out for the second

annual community event at

Wycola Park.

The Harcourts Hornbysponsored

event was organised

to help bring communities in

the suburb together.

Hello Hornby committee

chairman Scott MacDonald

said the event was “a huge

success.”

“The whole day is put

together by businesses, groups,

organisations, churches . . . I

guess we can all take pride and

feel it was a big success and a

great day,” he said.

It featured a wide variety

of free activities, including a

bouncy castle, water-walkers, a

large inflatable rock-climbing

obstacle and horses for children

to ride from Pony Parties Ltd.

The Hub Hornby organised

a free double-decker bus for

people to travel between the

mall and Wycola Park. There

were also free barbecues.

Residents took part in events,

including a potato-growing

competition, talent quest and

baking competition.

The baking was auctioned

off following the competition

with the money donated to the

Hornby Youth Hangout.

Mr MacDonald said many

companies and organisations

supported and helped organise

the event, including the Greater

Hornby Residents’ Association,

city council and Hornby

Community Care Centre.

The talent quest competition’s

stage was donated by Action

Scaffolding.

“We felt our stage last year

was a little small and hard

for people to see . . . Action

Scaffolding put on a big stage

for us, which they put up and

dismantled and just worked

beautifully,” Mr MacDonald

said.

He said he could not see any

reason why the event would not

run again next year and plans

to start organising it.

Freedom camper issues

•From page 1

“I don’t want to see that

[Burnside Park] become a

freedom camping hub in the city.

That would not be acceptable,”

he said.

Mr MacDonald said

the number of freedom

campers using the park has

only become noticeable in

the past couple of weeks.

The city council has had

three complaints in the last

year relating to freedom

camping issues at the site.

But Burnside Rugby

Football Club rugby

manager Brent Frew said the park

had no more of an issue with

freedom camping than anywhere

else.

He said the main problem

is the campers will leave their

rubbish in bags next to the rugby

club’s locked tip because there are

no rubbish bins at the park.

“I would think six

nights a week there is

freedom campers . . . a

year ago you wouldn’t

have got anybody,” Mr

Frew said.

About a year ago, it

was reported freedom

campers were upsetting

Sam

MacDonald

residents by parking

outside the Waimairi

Cemetery on Grahams

Rd.

Mr MacDonald said the city

council’s enforcement team continually

monitored the issue and

SKILLFUL: Peter Clemett of the

Christchurch Woodturners Association

shows off his talent while Nadia and Sasha

Isles (below) had their faces painted.

the problem went away.

He did not think the freedom

campers had shifted from

Grahams Rd to Burnside Park.

But both Mr Frew and Mr

MacDonald suspected the

increase in freedom campers was

due to the park being close to

the Christchurch International

Airport and rental car

companies.

In 2016, the city council

changed its Freedom Camping

Bylaw to ban campers without

toilets from council-owned land.

an issue at Burnside Park?

the community.

As someone who plays

hockey and rows for

the school, I found

that being part of a

sports team, or any

other club at school,

really brings about

a sense of pride and

family which you

would struggle to find

anywhere else.

This year especially,

I would love to place

a large emphasis on the

idea of school spirit

and school

community

by bringing

people

within

different

year

groups

closer

and

encouraging them to celebrate

the school.

I hope this idea can start to

be incorporated this year and

continue on for many years to

come. It will make girls proud to

be part of the CGHS family.

Next year I hope to continue

on to university, either in New

Zealand or overseas, and I

know the experiences I have

had at CGHS will prove to be

invaluable.

Christchurch Boys’ High

School senior monitor

Fergus Kilpatrick

When I first came to CBHS in

2015, I remember sitting on the

gym floor and listening to our

head boy at the time, Jake Bailey.

His kindness and caring

attitude struck a chord

with me. From then

on, I wanted the

opportunity to

make the same

difference, not

only in the

school but

in the wider

community.

In terms of

my goals for

this year, I

would love

to see

TOP: Campbell Madsen and Laura Gray will lead Riccarton

High School students this year.

everyone in the CBHS monitor

team grow and develop as

leaders, elevating their public

profiles, by becoming more

involved with CBHS and the

wider community.

Outside of school,

I am a very keen

outdoor enthusiast.

I spent most of my

childhood growing

up in Sumner, where

weekend activities

usually involved some

combination of surfing,

tennis or running in

the Port Hills.

From an early age,

I played rugby, and I have

continued this passion into

my teenage years, travelling

to South Africa in March this

year to play in a world schools

tournament. I also play the

guitar and consider myself a

semi-professional shower singer.

I intend to study law at either

Canterbury or Otago after

school.

Riccarton High School

head girl Laura Gray

I have so many good memories

over my time at this school and

am looking forward to making

this year the best of them all.

I am excited by the challenges

and responsibilities that year 13

and my role will throw at me

Fergus Kilpatrick

but I couldn’t be surrounded

by a better group of people to

overcome them with.

I am thrilled to be a part of

such an amazing school and I

am excited to see what

we can achieve in the

near future.

I come from a strong

sporting background

– volleyball is my

main sport (I made the

under-17 New Zealand

team last year) but in

my time at Riccarton I

have also played netball,

basketball and touch.

Something that

inspires me about others, which

just so happens to be one of

our Riccarton Way values, is

commitment. People that do

what they say they will, in my

mind, are the true leaders. As

cliché as it sounds, a motto I try

to live by is ‘treat others the way

you want to be treated’ and this

ties in so well with the concept of

commitment.

One of my pet peeves is when

people change plans because

something better came up. Of

course, some things are out

of our control, but when you

are committed to something,

I believe that it should take

priority.

It’s not always going to be

convenient, but there is a reason

why we commit to things and

SCHOOLS

if you don’t give it 100 per cent

is it worth investing any time

in at all? It can’t be expected

that you gain people’s respect

without earning it, and so I strive

to do this through showing my

commitment and hope that I will

get the same in return.

Riccarton High School

head boy Campbell

Madsen

For me, being head boy is an

opportunity to take everything

I’ve learned over the years and

put it towards something more

than just me or my peers.

I see it as a chance to not only

give back to the school, but to

also find out more about myself

and become a better person at

the same time.

I love all things sports-related,

for instance volleyball (senior A

boys), mountain biking, football

and canoe polo. I also enjoy

music, whether it’s listening to it

or playing the guitar.

A motto or phrase I like to live

by and believe in is ‘how you

choose to get along with others is

up to you.’

Something that inspires me

about others is their willingness

to do things for other people and

the unconditional generosity

they show. What I find

inspirational about myself is my

determination and willingness

to get involved. If I want to do

something or get something

done, I’ll set my mind to it

and give it my best. I’ve always

wanted to improve my musical

ability, but I’ve chosen to put my

time into other things, and that’s

just the way it is sometimes.

If I could wake up in the

morning and have something for

myself or others, it would be that

everyone would have something

in their lives that brings them

joy. Whether it’s something they

enjoy doing, or simply something

that makes them smile.

CBHS on path to winning Maadi

• By Gordon Findlater

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High

School’s coxed eight are in the

hunt to add their name to the

Maadi Cup for the first time in

history after storming to victory

at the South Island secondary

school championships.

The CBHS under-18 coxed

eight won their final major

hit out on Lake Karapiro in

commanding fashion ahead of

the Maadi regatta, which starts

on Monday.

A tail wind helped them

finish in a blistering time of

5min 51.77sec, more than 14sec

ahead of defending Maadi Cup

champions Christ’s College in

second.

In terms of national sporting

achievements, there’s not much

CBHS hasn’t done.

However, they are yet to win

the Maadi Cup.

“We’re all aware of that. They

got close in 1999 . . . we’re lucky

this year that we have a big

group of year 13s. We haven’t

necessarily said this is our target,

but if they go fast in something

then we’ll make it a target,” said

CBHS rowing coach Logan Keys.

Now in his eighth year with

the programme, Keys said the

group of 61 rowers is the largest

the school has had in his time.

“They got a little bit of a taste

of it last year and they’ve all

hung around,” said Keys.

“We started with two eights.

We had 16 guys going for it

and have spent all year trying

to whittle it down. We haven’t

quite got there yet, but it’s getting

pretty close . . . in previous years,

we might only have had eight

guys.”

The eight of Scott Shackleton,

Tom Fraser, Cameron Long,

Ethan Alderlieste, Cameron

Henderson, Angus Templeton,

James Glover, Ben Brown and

Timothy Heritage (cox) won

successful boys’ school at the

South Island regatta.

CBHS also won the boys

under-18 coxed four which will

have them in contention for the

SPORT

Springbok Shield – contested

at the Maadi regatta – they

narrowly missed out on last

year.

Rangi Ruru was the top girls’

school with four gold, six silver

and three bronze medals.

“The crews can be pleased

with their achievements this

weekend and should pat

themselves on the back for their

efforts. The coaches, parents

and management are in awe of

them,” said Rangi Ruru rowing

manager Ella Vink.

Meanwhile, St Margaret’s will

go into the Maadi regatta as the

South Island favourites in the

Jubilee Cup after winning the

girls under-18 coxed eight at the

Who’s taking part in the

It’s the 45th anniversary

of the Star Media

City2Surf. Reporter

Anan Zaki spoke to

some of the participants

aiming to be at the start

line on Sunday

Aaron Cooper, 43

Mr Cooper is set to take part

in his first City2Surf and will do

the 14km race.

“I just want to keep fit and test

the legs on running the distance.”

Mr Cooper plans to run a

half marathon

(21km) – which

is on his bucket

list – and

believes this is a

step towards the

goal.

“It’s the

Aaron Cooper

first time I’m

running 14km.

I’m a surfer,

I’m not really a runner. I used

to play rugby until I was 21 . .

. and, yeah, it [running] is just

something I’ve always wanted to

do,” he said.

Mr Cooper’s wife often takes

part in multi-sport events but

she will greet him at the finish

line as the couple have two young

children.

“When she gets fit, we’ll

definitely be doing other races as

a team,” he said.

David Clark,

29

Taking part in

the 14km event,

Mr Clark is

looking for a new

challenge. It will

be his second

David Clark time entering the

City2Surf.

“It’s just a wee challenge to just

test myself for a bit of fitness,” he

said.

“[The first time] was good. I

want to try something further, I

did the 6km [last year] and want

to try the 14km.”

He has been training hard

for the event and says he will be

ready for the race on March 24.

NEWBIE: Hailey McConchie will be running in her first

City2Surf this year.

“Currently I’m doing it myself

but we’ll see if my partner does it.

That will be just a wait and see.”

Hailey McConchie, 25

The mother of two used to be

focus on body building, but since

having her second child last year,

she’s switched to running.

It will be her first City2Surf.

“I’ve never been a runner.

People who tend to lift weight do

not like cardio whatsoever,” Mrs

McConchie said.

To lose weight after pregnancy,

she took up running. “I’ve lost a

lot of my baby weight . . . I started

an eight-week challenge and lost

about 6kg,” she said.

Getting into running was

difficult.

“At first it felt like a long time

to get running, even that first

kilometre. It felt like ages,” Mrs

McConchie said.

She will be taking part in the

6km event. “Every time I see a

race I just enrol myself and just

build myself in it.”

Mrs McConchie has heard

great things about the City2Surf

but couldn’t take part in it last

year as she had just given birth to

her second child a month before

the event. “I’d like to keep my

running up [this year]. It’s not

something I really enjoy but once

I find my rhythm 2-3km in, that’s

when I can see why some people

are addicted to running,” she

said.

Kelly Clements, 46

Mrs Clements

doesn’t live

far from the

start line near

Centennial Park.

She says the

City2Surf is a

good excuse to

Kelly

Clements

not pay for a gym

membership.

“It’s just my

one thing that makes me head

out and train each year. It’s

not too far being only 14km.

Rather than paying for a gym

membership, I sign up and it

makes me run,” Mrs Clements

said.

This will be her fourth

consecutive City2Surf. “A friend

got me into running and it was

Kristyn Ferry and Simon

Bradshaw

Simon Bradshaw, 30

Mr Bradshaw was

convinced by his partner

Kristyn Ferry to take part in

the 14km event.

“She did it last year and

enjoyed it and this year she’s

going to do it again. She said

she’d like me to do it with her

and I said why not.”

“She’s doing it more for a

social, keep fit aspect than it is for

a competitive aspect. So I’ve got

the same kind of idea to be doing

it to keep fit and healthy rather

than making the top 10,” he said.

Mr Bradshaw trains most days.

He has never entered a running

event before.

“I think I’ll be a bit nervous on

the day [of the race]. Just nervous

trying to get to the end,” Mr

Bradshaw said.

Seamus Tredinnick, 30

Running in the 6km event, Mr

Tredinnick, who is a keen sailor,

will be returning

to the event

for the second

consecutive year.

“My wife [Emily]

is a keen runner

and has done a

few marathons

so she’ll be doing

the 14km run,”

he said.

“Basically, at

Tredinnick

least if I sign up for an event, it

gives me a bit of motivation to

work towards to getting me out

and running, which is probably a

good thing,” Mr Tredinnick said.

“When you’ve got a peg in

the ground it’s easier to move

towards that goal,” he said.

Mr Tredinnick’s goal is to

finish the event.

Toenail fungus, also known as

onychomycosis, includes symptoms

such as thickened and discoloured

toenails; itchy, cracked and painful

skin; and the toenail can even become

separated from the nailbed. In short,

it is unattractive, uncomfortable and

persistent - it can be difficult to treat,

even using topical products.

The team at Footprints Podiatry at 7

Milton Street, Somerfield, continue to

bring cutting edge podiatry technology

to Christchurch. Now, they have the

Lunula Laser, a revolutionary treatment

for toenail fungus which is up to

93% effective, pain-free and has no

side effects. Exclusive to Footprints

Podiatry, the Lunula Laser means an

end to embarrassment about your

feet and can be administered while

the patient is comfortably seated. It

is a low-level laser designed to target

onychomychosis and is completely

safe. The laser light targets the areas of

fungus and, with each foot taking only

12 minutes, there is no down-time from

work or a busy lifestyle. Simply make an

appointment, call in, and thirty minutes

later you are back out the door and able

to carry on with your day. The number

of treatments you will need depends on

each case but it can be effective after as

few as four visits.

Although the Lunula Laser is

at the forefront of technology

for this pervasive condition,

podiatrists Howard Nicholas, and

Jacky Lee will take the time to sit

with you and make sure that it is

the right treatment for you and your

condition.

If you have painful and unsightly

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

WESTERN NEWS

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 or

both hips.

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. Alternatively, a

back muscle could also be the cause, as

shown in the image.

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

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

and wellbeing.

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 hip, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the hip in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

Back hip muscle that causes hip pain

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

More health benefits

with Advanced

Omega-3-PC Fish Oil

It is well known how important omega-3

fatty acids are to good health. It is estimated

most people don’t even get a third of the

recommended omega-3 fatty acids on

a weekly basis. Countries with a higher

amounts of omega-3 in the diet are known

to have lower cardiovascular disease and

in many cases better overall health. Recent

research has shown inflammation to be a

big part of disease and the ageing process.

Fish oil can help reduce inflammation by

providing essential fatty acids required by

the body to heal itself and maintain good

health. Fish oil supplements have become

hugely popular for this reason. Until now

most fish oil only contained omega-3 fatty

acids in triglyceride form. Fish however

naturally contain omega-3 in

triglyceride and phospholipid

form but until recently the

phospholipid form was lost due to

the manufacturing process.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-

3-PC sets new standards in

fish oil as it contains omega-3

attached to both triglycerides and

phospholipids. Studies have shown

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC to

be far better absorbed leading to

increased levels of vital omega-3

fatty acids in the organs thru giving

the potential for more health benefits.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-3-PC is

produced from fresh wild deep sea cold

water fish using a new advanced and more

natural cold extraction process that better

preserves the natural nutrient profile found

in fish. It is manufactured to high GMP

standards and is molecularly distilled to

remove any containments, toxins and

heavy metals like mercury.

Further information on this

revolutionary new fish oil and how it may

benefit you is available from the Natural

Health Advisers, at Marshall’s Health &

Natural Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are always

happy to help!

Modern diet leads to illness!

It’s not what you eat but what you absorb

Two Australian Naturopaths Stephen

and Shane noticed at the end of the 20th

century more and more of their patients

were experiencing gut, bowel and digestive

issues that were often leading to more

serious chronic health conditions. Being

Naturopaths they wanted to find what was

going wrong and began extensive research.

What they found was although their clients

were generally eating good food they were

not obtaining all the nutrients required for

good health from this food. Further research

showed one of the main problems was the

digestive system, “it’s not what you eat but

what you absorb.” Another well-known

problem is the soils the crops are grown in

have been depleted of many trace elements

and other nutrients that are known to be

essential for good health and therefore the

crops and food are also depleted. If we do

not obtain all the nutrients we require the

body will compensate to some degree but

a lack of too many nutrients will eventually

lead to health issues.

Based on this they

developed VITAL

GREENS, now call

VITAL ALL-IN-

ONE, a nutrient dense

powdered formula

that provides superior

absorption as well

as comprehensive

nutrition. They

decided on a

powdered formula

that could be made

as a great tasting drink because liquid

nutrition is the easiest way for the body

to absorb nutrients especially if digestive

issues are present. The formula provides

78 vital ingredients that work together in

synergy optimising each other’s absorption

and benefits. Vital Greens contains a

carefully balanced blend of nutritionally

rich greens, vegetables, fruits, minerals,

vitamins, essential fatty acids, plant and

herbal extracts, superfoods, powerful

antioxidants, probiotics, essential amino

acids, digestive enzymes, fibre plus a

uniquely alkalising pea protein. It provides

superior nutrition to a multivitamin and

just about anyone will benefit from it. It is

designed to provide all the nutrients the

body requires for good health. It is also ideal

for those in poor health, those recovering

from injury or sickness, children, athletes,

poor eaters and the elderly. It is also suitable

for people with dietary restrictions and is

gluten, wheat and dairy free. VITAL ALL-

IN-ONE will help remove toxic waste from

the body while supporting all organs. You’ll

often notice more energy and endurance,

better sleep, a more positive mood,

skin problems improving, less sickness,

improved eyesight and overall better more

optimum health.

Further information and how to obtain

the maximum benefits from VITAL ALL-

IN-ONE as well as tastings is available

from the Natural Health Advisers at

Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy,

101 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone:

388-5757. We are always happy to help!

NOT all FISH OIl IS CreaTed eQUal!

ONLY GO OMEGA-PC retains the natural Phospholipids that have been shown to be so beneficial for Good

Health BUT are lost in other brands of fish oil due to the less natural manufacturing processes used!

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC SETS NEW STANDARDS IN FISH OIL!

Omega-3 fish oil normally contains the vital Omega-3 fatty acids in a triglyceride form. Fish however naturally

contain Omega-3 in a triglyceride & phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process. GO OMEGA-PC is produced using a new more natural cold extraction process that better

preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish. Studies show GO OMEGA-PC offers superior absorption with

increased omega-3 fatty acids in organs giving the potential for more health benefits.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC OFFERS:

• Superior absorption of vital Omega-3, as

shown in research

• Advanced new cold extraction better

preserves the natural nutrient profile

found in fish

• Naturally contains phospholipids to

support cellular health

• Contains vitamin D3 to support immune,

bone & cardiovascular health

• Supports cardiovascular health - Countries with

a higher Omega-3 intake have much lower rates

of heart disease

• Supports blood circulation, healthy cholesterol &

healthy blood pressure

• Supports joint health, joint mobility & repair

• Supports overall health & wellbeing

• Natural anti-inflammatory - can help reduce pain

An elevation sensation

52 Morgans Valley, Heathcote

Auction: Thursday, 21 March 2019 Unless Sold Prior

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 2 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number: SM0170

WESTERN NEWS

Considerably sized and displaying modern

finishes this impeccably styled home rises

above the rest and offers unparalleled views

from the highest position in Morgans Valley.

The sizeable 2717m 2 site and its favourable

microclimate location deliver outstanding

peace and serenity with the exceptional

outlook stretching from the hillside across to

the city and out to the Southern Alps.

Drawing on the contemporary aesthetic

of the exterior, the interior of the home is

streamlined and modern, with an exquisite

kitchen and expansive open plan living area

found at its heart.

Granite benchtops, an entertainer’s oven and

a breakfast bar ensure the kitchen is equally

practical and eye-pleasing while a second

lounge provides an alternative living area and

contributes great flexibility for families.

Tremendous gallery windows drench

the home in natural light and capture the

captivating vista, and when the sun is shining,

you can soak up this scene and the sunshine

from the balcony or private outdoor setting.

Arranged over three floors and hosting a

total of four bedrooms and two bathrooms, the

upper level is naturally devoted to the master

suite which features a walk-in wardrobe and

ensuite.

Also forming part of the floor plan is a

separate laundry, an internal access garage

with storage and two heat pumps which offer

comfort and convenience.

Situated in the calming environment of

Heathcote Valley by Heathcote Valley school,

it’s an easy drive from Lyttelton Port and

various coastal suburbs, and the CBD is less

than 20 minutes’ drive away. This property

also provides a large back section which is

a blank canvas for growing fruit trees or for

those garden lovers wishing to potter away.

The vendors are firmly committed to selling,

and their immaculately presented home is

destined for a change of ownership.

Current GV: $870,000.

HOME & HEATING

The facts about

Home

Ventilation

Balanced Pressure

vs Positive Pressure

Choosing the

right heat pump

for your home

Are you struggling with the heat of

Summer or wanting to get organised for

Winter? With the ever changing weather

patterns, heat pumps have the flexibility

of being able to heat and cool which is an

advantage no other appliance can offer. This

represents great value for your investment

as you can use it all year round. The team

at Enviro Master Ltd can help keep you

cool this Summer either at home or work.

Enviro Master supplies, installs and services

all the leading brands including Panasonic,

Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means

our team can show you which system and

brand will best suit your needs.

With new regulations coming in for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals,

now is a great time to beat the 1st of

July deadline. Inadequate heating and

ventilation can lead to mould growth and

dampness in your property, leading to

costlier maintenance and an unhealthy

living environment. Providing a fixed

heater with a higher heat output and lower

running costs, like a heat pump, will enable

your tenants to heat the area effectively.

It will also discourage them from using

unflued gas heaters which can make a

house damp and mouldy.

It is important to remember, when

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s

warranty does not cover the installation

and consumers could be responsible for

any repair or damage caused to the system

due to poor installation. Enviro Master’s

five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration

so customers have an understanding on

how it will best meet their needs.

For a free in home consultation, call

Enviro Master on 366 0525 or visit our

showroom at 41A Shakespeare Rd,

Waltham, Christchurch.

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need

to be suitably ventilated, either with

opening windows or forced ventilation.

Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this

provision is to safeguard people from

illness or loss of amenity due to lack of

fresh air.” There are many benefits to forced,

or mechanical, ventilation over opening

windows, including warmth, security,

reduction of outside noises and reduction

of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in

from outside via the roof space and force

the stale air out through gaps around

windows and doors. The incoming air

from these systems has to be heated or

cooled to keep the house warm in winter or

cool in summer.

The Smooth-Air HEX390 is a ‘balanced

pressure’ system. It extracts air from the

house and at the same time brings in fresh

air. These two streams of air pass through

a heat exchanger, which warms incoming

air in winter and cools in summer if air

conditioning is being used. This means that

up to 80% of the energy which would be

wasted using a traditional positive pressure

system is recovered, resulting in significant

energy savings and therefore lower heating

or cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure

ventilation systems have been considerably

more expensive than traditional positive

pressure systems. However, with Smooth-

Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a

HEX390 balanced pressure system can be

installed for a similar price as a traditional

positive pressure system.
