Seed oil is often referred to as “The Remedy

dy for every illness except death.” Black seed

extracted from black cumin seeds (Nigella

) & has been used therapeutically for over

years, since its first reported discovery in

Tutankhamun’s tomb. For thousands of years

been used by practitioners of Ayurvedic &

ese traditional medicine for an endless list of

itions, from migraines to diabetes & cancer.

1959 scientists have carried out over 600

fungal, parasitic, & viral infections. According

to the “National Institute of Health” superbugs

are becoming a significant public health risk

as they are virtually impossible to treat. In the

USA an increasing number of hospital patients

are developing infections from superbugs with

more than 90,000 of these patients dying every

year. Researchers at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical

College wanted to confirm the benefits of black

seed oil against these superbugs compared with

common antibiotics. According to the study,

“out of 144 strains of superbugs tested, most of

which were resistant to a number of antibiotics,

97 were inhibited by the black seed oil. Microbes

or micro-organisms have been linked to most

disease & there are few things known to be

as effective against them as the black seed oil.

Croatian scientists studying mice with cancers

found that the phytochemicals in black seed oil

resulted in a 52% decrease in tumor cells. Diabetes

drugs can have numerous side effects but research

by the “Indian Council of Medicine” found that

black seed oil helps regenerate pancreatic cells &

decreases elevated serum glucose in both type 1 &

type 2 diabetes.

Amazing Herbs in the USA produce the original

this oil on the internet it is amazing to see the

Three new faces for community board

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

AL NOOR Mosque’s Imam,

an office support person

and a key figure behind the

successful campaign saving

Denton Park are the three new

faces representing the western

suburbs.

Gamal Fouda, Andrei Moore

and Mark Peters have been

elected to represent the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board following the recent local

body elections.

Mark Peters received the

highest number of votes for the

Hornby Ward with 2636 votes,

closely followed by previous

board chairman Mike Mora with

2112 votes.

While he missed out on being

elected as the Hornby councillor

to incumbent Jimmy Chen

by 1089 votes, he said he was

pleased to be elected as a board

member.

“I am looking forward to it.

Hornby is well-represented. I

am pleased Jimmy is back in

and keen to work with him,” Mr

Peters said.

The former Save Denton Park

chairman is well-known for

helping fight against having the

new Hornby Library, Service

Centre and South West Pool

Gamal Fouda Andrei Moore Mark Peters

from being built at Denton

Park.

He is well-known in the

community as a member of

the Greater Hornby Residents’

Association member and for

being actively involved Hope

Presbyterian Church.

Mr Fouda, who has been the

Imam of Al Noor mosque for

the last three years, will form

the Riccarton part of the board

after receiving 1154 votes – just

behind Helen Broughton who

got 1736 votes.

He said he was happy to have

the opportunity to continue

working in the community.

Mr Fouda received widespread

praise for his response following

the Al Noor Mosque losing

44 people to the March 15

shootings.

Mr Moore has been elected

as a Halswell board member

following receiving the highest

number of votes for the role at

4208.

“It wasn’t a result I was

expecting. I couldn’t quite

believe it,” he said.

He was adopted from Romania

by a Halswell family and has

lived in the suburb since he was

two-weeks-old.

A part-time office support

person, his work involves helping

people with issues including

housing, Work and Income and

immigration.

Key issues he wants to work

on this term is water, crime,

burglaries, better transport and

infrastructure planning.

Meanwhile, long-serving

board members Mr Mora, Mrs

Broughton, Ms Mora have

retained their seats.

They will be joined by city

councillors Jimmy Chen, Anne

Galloway and Cr Chu.

Previous members Ross

McFarlane and Natalie Bryden

will not be returning.

Mr Mora has served on the

board for 27 years. He was first

elected in 1992 and this will be

his 10th term.

While he is “really looking

forward” to serving the

community, this will be his last

term as an elected member.

Mr Mora, 71, said there some

other areas in his life he is

planning to focus on.

He is hoping he will be

selected as the chairman for

part of the term before starting a

“transitioning period.”

Like Mr Peters and Cr Chen, a

key issue he will be focusing on

is completing the new Hornby

mega-facility.

Mrs Broughton has served on

the board since 1995. She was a

city councillor from 2001-2013

and deputy chairwoman from

2013.

She said she is feeling really

positive about being re-elected

and is delighted Cr Chu has been

elected onto council.

Mrs Broughton said she

is one of a small number of

elected members with planning

qualifications and her goal is to

protect the living quality of the

Riccarton Ward.

This is Ms Mora’s third term

on the board.

She said she is overwhelmed

and blessed with the support

from the Halswell ward

community.

Ms Mora said her goals

are to be as active in the

community and around

the board table as she has

been before along with her

volunteering work.

Laryngeal paralysis in dogs

Laryngeal paralysis is a complex, typically progressive,

condition commonly affecting older large breed

dogs resulting in severe difficulty breathing especially

with exercise. This isn’t a common condition but when

these dogs present all hands need to be on deck. These

dogs can often present extremely distressed, unable to

breathe, collapsed and “blue”. Firstly if the dog presents

as an emergency they need oxygen via a cannula or

mask FAST. Often due to their distress at not being able

to breathe, sedation is necessary to calm these dogs

down as is cooling ( For example, fans and wetting

down). Occasionally intubation under anaesthesia

or a temporary tracheotomy can be lifesaving in this

situation.

This condition is best managed surgically but surgery

isn’t undertaken lightly and usually these operations

are performed by specialist surgeons. Discussions

need to be had with the client on the procedure and

possible complications post surgery, as in aspiration

pneumonia ( occurs in about 20% patients as a lifetime

risk with or without surgery). If these dogs are to

be managed medically we need to focus on weight

management, exercise control, environmental factors

like living in cooler climates and checking to make sure

these patients are not hypothyroid. Long term medical

management doesn’t have much impact on the disease

really and its likely to get worse due to its progressive

nature. While surgery doesn’t change the disease

progression, it is the preferred approach for long

term management and quality of life for the dog. The

surgical procedure can be tricky requiring anatomical

knowledge of the larynx and associated structures,

delicate specialised surgical instruments, careful control

of bleeding and excellent aftercare for the patient.

The response of dogs to surgery is excellent and you’ll

notice a few hours post operatively these dogs are

breathing easier already.

Each surgeon has their preferred technique and

you need an accompanying surgical nurse who is

competent in anaesthesia. These surgeries are often

performed in the morning so the surgical nurse has

all day to monitor the patients breathing, recovery

and vital signs. These patients are either discharged

to an afterhours hospital for the night or sent home

for aftercare with their family. They need to be in a

“cool’ and ‘calm’ environment, with no boisterous dogs

around for distractions. Diet consists of small meals

of meatballs fed from a height- avoid dry, sloppy and

liquid diets, as the dogs swallowing may be impaired

due to generalised neurological impairment.

“Bella” an 11 year old Border Collie recently had this

surgery performed at McMaster & Heap Vet Practice by

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Dr Helen Milner, a Registered Specialist in Small animal

Surgery. Bella developed difficulties breathing about 3

months ago quite suddenly. She quickly became puffed

and tired on walks and could only exercise a fraction of

what she was previously doing. Bella had lost her voice,

had effort exhaling on lying down and often looked like

she was having an asthma attack on exercise. This was

distressing for Bellas owners who wanted a better, more

active life for her.

So far so good. Bella can finally once again breathe

with ease - a tremendous outcome for all concerned,

especially Bella who can once again enjoy 3 hour runs

in the Port Hills, chasing rabbits and stalking ducks. The

hardest part has been keeping her rested and quiet for

4-6 weeks post surgery to avoid complications. Bella is

raring to go and looks essentially normal although she

has permanently lost her bark, which the neighbours

are quite stoked about.

Dr Helen Milner now works out of McMaster & Heap

Vet Practice doing Specialist Referral surgeries from

November of this year. Our new hospital has a dedicated

specialised theatre and surgical area and we have

purchased all the necessary surgical instrumentation

to perform referral surgery. A consultation is necessary

before surgery is planned. Please call the Practice if you

would like to find out more about this service.

Dr Michele McMaster

please remember the

NEW CLINIC OPEN DAY

on 30th November 12-3pm, where you’ll get

a chance to walk through our new facility

and chat to all our staff.

Update from Bella’s mum

Bella still thinks she is a young dog at 11 years old…

there are lots of things we thought she would grow

out off as she aged like jumping up on people when

she greeted them and trying to round up cars… She is a

very lean dog who loves her food and walks in the hills

but equally as happy lying in wait in the back yard for

the neighbours car to start up…. She has a wee bit of

arthritis in her back knees but otherwise is a very happy

and healthy dog.

So it was quite surprising when one day she chased

some rabbits in Wanaka on a walk and came back

breathing like an asthmatic - gasping and rattling.

She recovered within a few minutes and we didn’t

think much more of it - maybe just old dog breathing.

Gradually over the next couple of months her

breathing, while exercising heavily, got worse and then

we noticed a change in her bark. She suddenly seemed

to have a weird squeaky bark - she kept looking round

to see where the bark had come from. We videoed her

while exercising and headed off to see our vet, Dr Steve

Heap.

Steve looked at the video and immediately diagnosed

her with Laryngeal Paralysis. At this stage she was

only having issues breathing while exercising and was

having no problem eating. Steve felt, given how fit

and healthy she was, surgery was definitely an option

for Bella. And luckily for us they had Dr Helen Milner

coming on board at the practice who had done loads of

these tricky referral procedures. Plus she was happy to

come and operate on Bella before she had even started

her new surgical role at McMaster & Heap Vets.

Our meeting with Helen quickly dissipated any fears we

had that Bella was maybe too old for major surgery. She

went through every step of what was involved including

any complications and what her recovery period would

be like. We instantly loved Helen and felt we were in

great hands. She has huge empathy with her patients

and Bella loved her too. She was gentle and thorough

in her work up of Bella. She felt Bella would recover well

and would be back walking in the hills before we knew

it. She gave us a huge amount of reading material about

GOLPP which certainly helped in our decision making.

A few days later Bella was back for surgery at

McMaster & Heap. The surgery went really well with no

complications. She came home that afternoon, was a

bit woozy that night but the next day she up and ready

for action. That has been the only downside to surgery

- keeping her quiet and rested for 6 weeks! She has a

brand new flash looking harness as can’t be walked with

a collar anymore. Her ‘bark” has disappeared for good.

Her stitches are out and her wound looks amazing. After

a week of hand feeding her small meatballs she is back

eating her normal diet out of her bowl.

So far so good - watch out Port Hills rabbits. It won’t be

long till Bella is back on the chase…

Bella’s mum, Jo

TALENT: Corban Farnley in action on Lake Havasu in Arizona,

United States.

‘My goal was to win one but it

was pretty cool to win all three’

From page 1

Corban prevailed in the junior

ski 13 to 15-year-old lites, the

amateur classic ski and amateur

ski lites class. He not only beat the

best jet ski riders in his age-group,

but adults as well.

“My goal was to win one but it

was pretty cool to win all three,”

he said.

“It was very rough conditions

over there and I love racing in

that so it really helped me. Often

it was very windy but that suited

me. We all do 10 laps and race

each other at the same time. A lap

can take up to 2min.”

The jet skiers reach speeds of up

to 50km/h, Corban has been racing

since he was 10, but first got

on a jet ski when he was five.

His father Chris, was a national

champion in 1995 and owns a jet

ski shop. “At the start dad was my

trainer and I just got on with it and

gave it a go and really enjoyed it.”

He enjoyed having a bunch of

silverware to hold on the flight

home.

“It was pretty good. I had three

big trophies that lots of people

were asking me to carry on the

plane,” he said.

Corban will focus on the national

championships in March at

Cambridge. “There will be plenty

of racing for me to do over the

summer, but the nationals will be

my major focus to get ready for.”

Advice for

speaking up

at hearing

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A WORKSHOP will be held next

month to help residents speaking

at a major hearing over plans to

open a controversial quarry in

Templeton.

It will be run by retired resource

management consultant and

Deans Avenue Precinct Society

chairwoman Claire Mulcock and

is aiming to help residents who

aren’t used to speaking in public.

It comes as the hearing over

Fulton Hogan’s resource application

to open a 170ha quarry at

Curraghs, Dawsons, Jones and

Maddisons Rd begins on November

18.

Templeton Residents’ Association

secretary Mel Himin said the

aim of the workshop is to upskill

and predominantly give residents

confidence as the hearings process

can be “overwhelming.”

The workshop will cover making

verbal submissions at the

hearing, what to do and the processes

involved in a hearing.

The “Speaking at the hearing”

workshop will be held November

7.

Ballet apprentice back home for production

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHEN CALUM Gray was

a teenager, he never thought

he would one day dance for a

national ballet company.

But a whirlwind year as a

Royal New Zealand Ballet apprentice

has

brought the

now 21-yearold,

one step

closer to

his dreams

of leading

a career as

a full-time

Calum Gray

professional

ballet dancer.

Now, the upcoming

dancer, who grew up in

Riccarton, will return to the city

next month as part of the Royal

New Zealand Ballet’s production

of Hansel & Gretel.

Alongside Gray, fellow apprentice

Teagan Tank, formerly

of Redwood, will also return to

the city for the production.

Gray will form the corps de

ballet playing the role of one of

the witches’ gingerbread men.

Based in Wellington, Gray, a

former Anneliese Gilberd Academy

dancer, said he is excited to

be travelling back to the city.

“I can never pinpoint why –

there is something about the city

I like,” he said.

Gray has described the past

year with RNZB as “refreshing”

after training with the New Zealand

School of Dance for three

years before graduating with a

classical major.

“It motivates me to want to

keep pursuing this and keep

progressing,” he said.

While Gray has spent a lot of

the year watching and learning

from the other full-time

dancers, he has had the opportunity

to perform in each of the

RNZB’s national productions

this year.

This includes Bold Moves,

Black Swan, White Swan and

Tutus on Tour 2019.

“I never expected to get into

the RNZB or knew where dancing

would take me but I am

truly grateful to keep dancing

and to work with the RNZB.”

He said one of the biggest

transitions moving from the

New Zealand School of Dance to

the RNZB is managing his dayto-day

physical routine outside

of his six-hour weekday rehearsals

with the company.

“You have to keep yourself

physically in shape . . . in the

company you are expected to

look after yourself more,” Gray

said.

He first started training in

ballet at the age of eight before

realising he wanted to dance

professionally at the age of 14.

Gray said he would like to

encourage more people to dance

in general – but particularly for

other boys his hope is they will

try a range of physical sports

from a young age.

Gray said while he did get

picked on for doing ballet when

he was younger – it never came

from a place of malice.

“These young kids just didn’t

really understand what I was

doing.

“By the time I took up

full-time training the majority

of people who knew me knew

what I did and had a lot of

respect for me for moving away

from home . . . they were almost

envious I had something I

wanted to do.”

Woodcote resident charmed by a friendly

village and gorgeous gardens

Nell Riordan, a proud townhouse

resident at Ryman Healthcare’s

Woodcote Retirement Village,

loves the community spirit and

easy access to shopping areas

from her home.

She has been in the village

for nearly three years and has

a neatly adorned living and

kitchen area that leads out to

beautiful paving and a very wellmaintained

private garden.

Given her hands are arthritic she

no longer drives, but she does

keep a mobility scooter in her

garage for easy trips down to The

Hub Hornby and other services in

the area. As an avid reader she is

happy that the village van makes

regular trips to the library as well

as other outings further aeld.

She lived in Rolleston then in

Wigram, with her family, before

her daughter let her know about

the option of townhouses at

Woodcote. She loved that when

she moved in the townhouse had

been completely refurbished and

that the garden was ready for her

to make her own mark.

“People are surprised how

spacious it is. We’ve got a big

pantry and everything that goes

with it, including a dishwasher

and oven. I still bake because I

can. I share the baking with the

kids usually – the family.”

She says she also loves the

easy access the village provides

to family and friends who want

to visit. Her daughter and

son, Donna and Matthew, who

both live in Christchurch are

frequent visitors.

She also has just had a visit

from her younger sister, who lives

on the West Coast, where Nell

was born. She was only a tot when

she and her parents moved to

Little River, the beginning of her

life in Canterbury.

She and her husband, Michael,

who passed away 10 years ago,

went on to raise a family and

also enjoyed living in Nelson

Nell enjoys her private garden at Woodcote Retirement Village.

for a period before returning to

Christchurch.

Nell found it a bit lonely being

by herself in her Rolleston

home. But since her arrival at

the village she says she hasn’t

looked back. She has made

plenty of friends and enjoys the

regular Happy Hours where

she can have a wine or beer

with good company.

Nell also enjoys participating in

Triple-A exercise classes, part

of an activities programme that

residents can choose to join in.

She likes a cup of tea before she

begins and says the tness

programme is sometimes busy

enough that she contemplates

another cup of tea afterwards.

Triple A is run by instructor

Carol, who has other talents,

Nell says. Every now and

then Carol runs a cooking class

where everyone brings ingredients

and joins in re-creating the

latest recipe.

Nell likes the open spaces in

and around Woodcote. She enjoys

the fact the village gardener

keeps her private garden space

looking nice, so she can relax. She

also received new paving in the

garden space.

“I usually sit out there (in the

garden) because it gets the sun.

I put my sunglasses on and read.

I do read a lot.”

The landscaped gardens stand out

at all times of year but particularly

in spring and summer when the

owers are blooming, and the

leaves have just unfurled.

The village amenities include a

library, dining room, lounges,

indoor bowls, pétanque court and

hair salon. There are also outings

and occasions for the residents to

enjoy. “We’re like a big family here

really, because we’re a relatively

small village.

“The staff are excellent. We’ve

just been on a trip to Hanmer – we

had a lovely day. We’ve also been

on the train to Kaikoura, and had

a meal. We go out a lot.”

Village Manager Liz Hampton

says Nell has been happy to

show off the village to prospective

residents. She has helped

with some lifestyle anecdotes

when regular Sales Advisor

Susie Alayne was asked if

someone is able to talk from a

resident’s perspective.

C olour your wardrobe

with fresh shades

of spring

Spring is proving to be an exciting time at The

Hub Hornby, with new stock arriving daily in their

extensive range of fashion stores.

Gorgeous shades of pink, yellow and green, to

name a few, are starting to brighten up the racks,

with something there to suit everyone.

A new trend being seen this season is skirts, pants,

jackets and blouses in matching fabrics, so you can

put together your own dress, suit or jumpsuit. This

also makes it much easier if you are a different size

on your upper and lower body, as you can get a

perfect fit with different-size garments.

Linen is another strong fashion trend this spring,

with the ever-popular neutral colours showing

up, as well as some brighter shades for a more

vibrant look. With a strong focus on sustainability

in fashion, many stores are stocking fashion

garments in natural fibres like this, making it a win

both for you and for the environment.

Blazers are another top pick for the change of

season. These are perfect with jeans and sneakers

or worn over a maxi dress for an on-trend look.

Belts and scarves are popular and versatile

accessories for spring and right through to

summer. Scarves can be worn tied at the neck,

thrugh the belt loops on your jeans, as a hair

turban, or a ribbon on a hair-up, on your handbag

.... the list is endless! Belts can be versatile too,

adding colour and personality to jeans, dresses,

skirts or over blazers.

Want help with your shopping? Need some new

ideas for your wardrobe? Why not get The Hub

stylist Vicki involved?

Imagine walking into a changing room that is

already full of things in your size, colourings

and style, getting everything you need to build a

capsule wardrobe in just a couple of hours. Plus,

everything you try on is magically in your budget ....

With Vicki’s trained eye and understanding of

fashion trends, you can have your wardrobe

ready for spring. Sessions are available from just

$60, so check out beautyandstyle.co.nz for more

information.

Redevelopment

almost complete

at Hornby High

After many months of demolition, site clearing and

construction the redevelopment of Hornby High

School is nearing completion, with the second stage of

the project – three new learning hubs – being finished

and students moving in just prior to the Term 3 holiday

break.

Each hub is designed to accommodate 200 students,

with the flexible, innovative design allowing for different

teaching and learning activities. As suggested by

Ngai Tahu, each one has been named for a bird that is

found in the Hornby area – they are Tieke, Mohua and

Riroriro.

The finishing touches are being made to the covered

laneways between the buildings, which provide

space where students can linger with friends between

classes.

“We’re thrilled with the learning hubs, but there’s still

plenty to do,” says principal Robin Sutton.

The new learning hubs are designed for different teaching and learning activities. The soon-to-be-demolished boiler chimney

can be seen in the background.

“Still to come are a half basketball court and an outdoor

performance stage, as well as landscaping to be

completed.”

The long-awaited demolition of the last of the school’s

old buildings will take place progressively over Term

4, and will see the disappearance of a familiar Hornby

landmark, the boiler house and chimney, which have

stood there since 1975.

Neighbouring Hornby Primary School will reap some

benefit from the high school’s redevelopment, too.

Classrooms that were brought to the Hornby High

campus in 2014 to accommodate Year 7 and 8 students

are to be refurbished and transferred to the

primary school site.

All work is scheduled to be completed by February 10,

2020.

The redeveloped Hornby High has been designed to

accommodate a roll of 800, with the roll currently

standing at just below 700, Robin says.

“Parents from the local area are choosing to send their

children to Hornby High, and with fewer out-of-zoners

coming, the Ministry projects we should be able to

cope with an increasing roll.”

Deputy secretary sector enablement and support at

the Ministry of Education Katrina Casey says they routinely

work with schools as they manage the schooling

network.

“School boards are required to consult with their

school community, and neighbouring schools about

enrolment scheme proposals,” she says.

The Hornby High School enrolment scheme has been

in place since January 2019. Hornby High School year

9-13 enrolment zone (Uru Manuka) includes Hornby,

Gilberthorpe, South Hornby, Wigram, Templeton and

Yaldhurst primary schools. St Bernadette’s School is

also included in the Hornby High School zone.

Expert watchmakers

repair iconic clock

Thanks to Ilam Watchmakers a clock,

which prior to the earthquakes had provided

the time for Christchurch residents

from the former railway station, will again

fulfil its role.

When the owners of the

newly opened Riverside

Market wanted to

install the iconic

clock at the

market, they

approached

Geoff and

Michelle

Butler of

Ilam Watchmakers

for

help.

One of the

original dials

that were

retained is already

installed inside the

market. It has been fitted

with a new up-to-date GPS

movement sourced from overseas. In the

coming weeks, another dial will be positioned

on the exterior, Geoff says.

The team of seven watchmakers and four

watch technicians, along with the four admin

staff, are no strangers to this type of

repair – having already repaired not only

the Christchurch Arts Centre clock but

the Blenheim clock tower as well. They

are currently in the process of repairing

the Timaru Council town clock too.

Geoff and Michelle, who

started the business

18 years ago, say

they can repair

“the majority

of watches

and clocks

– including

The former antiques”.

RICCARTON HIGH SCHOOL Te Kura Tuarua o Pūtaringamotu

Technology the focus for innovative teaching & learning

Riccarton High School’s

deputy principal Lisa Heald

is brimming with ideas for

enhancing students’ learning,

particularly by focusing on new

technology. This year she has

had the opportunity to share

and expand her thinking with

other like-minded educators as

a member of the international

BOMA educational fellowship.

The 10-member group from

Christchurch is being funded

by Christchurch International

Airport, with the organisation

keen to promote “innovation,

technology and exponential

thinking”, Lisa says.

“The fellowship is about

nurturing innovative education

in Christchurch and developing

teachers so we can transform learning,” she

says.

“A key focus is on what’s happening with

technology and the rapid changes that are

taking place, and what these mean for young

people and their future.”

The group meets monthly for discussions and

workshops, while earlier this year they took

a trip to the United States, where they visited

innovative schools, the IDEO design company,

Google X and Stanford University, spending two

days at the university’s design studio.

During the year each group member was

also required to develop a project with an

exponential technology component, and for Lisa

and her students this was the establishment

of the school’s Media and Advertising Division,

or MAD. Through this, the students learn how

to use the various social media platforms in a

positive way to inform, promote and celebrate

the school community and its activities.

“Unlike some other schools where the use of

social media is blocked during school hours,

Riccarton High School has embraced it.” Lisa

says.

“All today’s students are using it – it’s

part of their lives now, so for us it’s about

understanding it.”

MAD is developing a partnership with JIX, a

Christchurch organisation that specialises in

technology and experiential marketing.

“This opportunity allows us to network

with enterprising businesspeople to bring

technological thinking into the school, and

through this teaching and learning we can

create the future with the intention to make the

world a better place,” Lisa says.

STudeNTS SHOWCASe THeIR SkILLS IN MuSICAL SOIRee

The Lyttelton Arts Factory

provided the ideal venue for

Riccarton High School’s annual

senior music students’ Musical

Soiree, which they presented

there on September 14.

Head of department, Anne-

Marie Plummer, says the 40

students involved play a full

range of instruments to a

high standard, and the event

gave them the opportunity to

perform in a theatre, which was

transformed into a “jazz-like

cabaret venue” for the occasion.

“The idea is to give the students

the experience of performing in

a more real and genuine venue than at school –

a more adult performance setting,” Anne-Marie

says.

The repertoire included a wide selection of

numbers across jazz, contemporary and R&B

genres, and the performance received a positive

and enthusiastic response from the full house

of family and friends.

Lisa Heald middle row right. Front left is David Clifford of the

university’s design school.

The students delighted the audience with their musical prowess.

As well as being a showcase for their musical

talents, the soiree was also an opportunity for

the students to dress for the occasion, and they

all looked “smart and classy”, Anne-Marie says.

She was thrilled with her students’

performance, and the many positive comments

on the school’s Facebook page also showed the

audience felt the same.

Whare to enhance inclusive atmosphere at RHS

Teachers and staff at Riccarton

High School continue to

promote a welcoming and

inclusive whānau atmosphere

built on strong and positive

relationships and the Riccarton

Way values, says principal Neil

Haywood.

“As a key part of that we are

introducing a whare (house)

structure where all students will

be placed in one of four whare,”

Neil says.

As he explains, the whare will

be led by a Kaiarataki (Head of

House) and a Kaitiaki (Dean of

House), who will be supported

by a group of whānau teachers.

Students will be connected

to their allocated whare

throughout their time at RHS.

Each whare will consist of whānau groups

comprising around 18 students from Years 9-13,

with one whānau teacher.

“This will allow older students to mentor

younger ones,” Neil says. “In Te Ao Māori this

system of older and younger learning from each

“The intention is that students will stay with the

same whānau teacher from year to year.”

Improvised theatre, or

Theatresports as it is more

commonly known, has a long

tradition at Riccarton High

School, with annual inter-school

competitions giving students the

chance to pit their creative skills

against other improvisers.

Last month the school team

was held at the Court Theatre,

Top tasks for the

spring garden

Words & P hotos Rachel Vogan

Plant & feed

The main jobs to focus on this month are planting,

feeding and weeding. In the edible garden, October

is one of the busiest months for sowing and planting,

while in the flower garden numerous bedding plants

should be planted out. It is the right time to fertilise

everything from lawns and flowerbeds through to fruit

trees and garden borders.

Weeds

Keep a close eye on the weeds – they’ll be out in force

now the soil has warmed, so tackle them by handweeding,

hoeing or spraying before they take control.

Once pulled out, weeds can be left to shrivel and die

in the sun, or add young ones to the compost heap.

Weed spray is an easy way to control larger garden

areas, driveways or along berms. Find one that suits

you and your garden, but don’t delay – now’s the time

to deal with them. Once garden beds are clear, add a

layer of mulch to keep more weeds from springing up.

Wildflowers

Wildflowers are easy to sow: simply scatter the seeds

on bare, cultivated soil, water lightly and walk away.

They will fill in bare empty gaps and spaces, and the

birds, bees and other beneficial insects love them,

boosting both honey production and pollination. Phacelia

is popular with honeybees and sets seed readily,

so is almost certain to pop up again next season.

Citrus

Prune back and fertilise citrus over the next month or

two, ensuring you pick any remaining fruit first. Aim

to reduce the overall size of the bush and open up the

centre of the plant to allow more light in and air to circulate.

Pruning will encourage plants to push out new

growth, flowers and next season’s fruit. Fertilise with

citrus fertiliser twice a year, once in spring and again

in autumn – not too much. A drench with a seaweed

tonic will give the plants a welcome boost too. Add

mulch around the base of the plant to enable the soil

to retain moisture and ensure citrus is well watered

over summer, as this is when the plants are working to

produce next season’s fruit.

Lawns

New lawns can be established this month. Whether

you’re sowing seeds or laying an instant lawn, prepare

the soil carefully in advance by cultivating and levelling

it to ensure there are no slumps or hollows where water

can sit and pond. Fertilise the ground and rake it in.

(You can reward existing lawns with an application of

lawn fertiliser too.) Next, either lay the turf or scatter

seed evenly over the area, being careful to get a good

coverage. Don’t be tempted to mow lawns too low; this

does more harm than good. Lawn clippings are not

suitable for mulch. The piles get too hot, become slimy

and cause disease problems, so put them in your

compost bin.

Vegetables

Sow seeds of beans, eggplant, capsicum, radish,

carrot, tomato, cucumber, courgette, sweet corn and

chilli. Plant out main crop potatoes now, along with

yams. Both need a well-dug soil in a warm sunny spot,

and remember to blend in potato food prior to planting.

For potatoes already in the ground and growing,

mole up (mound up) once the foliage appears through

the soil. This encourages a bigger harvest and keeps

sunlight off the crop as they develop. Plant out seedlings

of celery, spring onion, cabbage, cauliflower, kale,

pak choi, broccoli and beetroot. Stake broad beans

and peas to keep them from flopping and lying on the

ground.

Sporty SUV

hard to resist

By Ross Kiddie

Price – Skoda Kodiaq RS, $71,990

Dimensions - Length, 4699mm; width, 2087mm; height, 1685mm

Configuration - Four-cylinder, four-wheel-drive, 1968cc, 176kW, 500Nm,

seven-speed automatic.

Performance – 0-100km/h, 7sec

Fuel usage – 7.7l/100km

SKODA

KODIAQ

RS: Sporty

variant

with diesel

engine.

There’s no denying sport utility vehicles are the cars of

choice for today’s buyer, as global sales figures show.

The choice is overwhelming, especially in the mid-size sector.

If family or recreational requirements call for an SUV, but

you want something more towards sporty – then Skoda has

the car for you: the Kodiaq RS.

The Kodiaq has been with us for a year or so now, and lands

here in three variants: an entry-level model at $44,990, a

high-grade Sportline at $64,990, and just recently an RS

model joined the ranks. The RS sits at $71,990 and is characterised

by its flashy looks, inside and out, and high-power

driveline.

Herein lies a secret. Under the bonnet sits a 2-litre diesel

engine, and while you wouldn’t ordinarily expect diesel to

be the basis for performance, you have to remember Skoda

has had many sports models with diesel engines, and it is a

concept the company does very well, even in motorsport.

In the Kodiaq, the turbocharged four-cylinder unit pumps

out 176kW and a feisty 500Nm at the bottom end. The latter

is what makes the RS so special – not only is the specific

output high, maximum torque is available from 1750rpm to

2500rpm, which is where the engine wants to constantly

work. As a result, there is dynamic engine performance, midrange

boost will offer a 4.2sec overtaking time (80-120km/

h), and an off-the-mark time of 7sec to make 100km/h from

a standstill.

Even if you aren’t in a hurry, there is a constant willingness

from the engine that tantalises the driver, and if you take

into account the manufactured exhaust sound, which throbs

constantly, the RS is hard to drive without wanting to give it

some freedom.

There are several drive modes and, depending on which is

activated, the exhaust sound can be encouraged or left in a

more subtle tone. The Kodiaq is also a pretty useful off-roader,

with modes that channel power more usefully through

the four-wheel-drive platform.

There is another element adding spice to the driveline;

power is channelled through a seven-speed direct shift

transmission, and this configuration is one of my favourites.

DSG is more of a manual-type gearbox, although there are

only two foot pedals; the beauty of this is the lack of load

through the transmission, engine power is mostly unimpeded,

and with quick shifts the feeling of performance is

well enhanced.

I took the test car through some tight, hilly roads close to

Sheffield, and although the roads were greasy I felt at ease

in the RS. Grip in the first instance is supplied by sticky Pirelli

Scorpion tyres (235/45 x 20in) and they offer substantial

steering feel along with direct turn-in.

It has to be remembered the Kodiaq has traditional SUV

handling; it sits high at almost 1.7m, and with long-travel

suspension isn’t as nimble as a sedan. However, the spring

and damper rates arrest body movement well, along with the

parameters that allow for high occupant comfort. You would

expect nothing less from this Czech Republic manufacturer,

which has drawn significant build-quality direction from the

Volkswagen group.

Perhaps one of the most exciting aspects the RS offers is

the point-to-point ability. iI will lunge out of corners and blast

without lag through the paddle shift system to the point

where speed needs to be chiselled off. High-grade brakes

take care of that and with the grip naturally associated with

four-wheel-drive the RS feels well attached to the road, and

is dynamic and forceful when asked to respond.

This all from a car that has a vastly different role to play as

well; it is the quintessential mid-size seven-seater that looks

after its occupants in terms of fitment, specification and

safety. At $72k it needs to be well appointed, and it leaves

little to chance.

It also has fuel economy on its side – Skoda claims a combined

cycle average of 7.7-litres per 100km (36mpg).

It takes a very special car to win the New Zealand Motoring

Writer’s Guild Car of the Year Award and the Kodiaq took the

honours for 2017.

The RS adds another ingredient into the equation, and it certainly

captured my attention with its performance, economy

yet practicality all thrown in for good measure.

This stylish four-bedroom home is at the higher end of the price range and is located in Ciaran Close, Kintyre Estate.

Quality the focus for long-established building company

For nearly seven decades now, Enterprise Homes

Ltd has been providing Canterbury families with

smartly designed, high-quality, brand-new homes and

property.

Established in 1951 by builder Ian Renwick as Renwick

Construction, it started trading as Enterprise Homes

Ltd in 1972, and is the longest-established residential

building company active in Canterbury today.

In its formative years, the company built homes under

contract for clients and purchased and developed

land to provide completed house and land packages

ready for the market. These business streams were

complimented at different periods in the company’s

history when it was a major supplier of government

housing in Canterbury.

Today, the business’s key focus is on designing,

building and delivering high-quality, completed house

and land packages to Canterbury homeowners within

their own subdivisions.

“We design and build high-quality homes in a range

of sizes priced from $415,000 up to $850,000, which

we fully complete and then take to the market,” says

Enterprise Homes general manager, Rob Sloan.

“We have three subdivisions in Christchurch – two

in Yaldhurst and one in Burwood, and all our homes

come as complete packages including window

coverings, flooring, quality appliances, landscaping

and fencing.

“Each home in our subdivisions is unique. They are

designed and sited on their individual sections to

maximise sunlight and indoor/outdoor living. They

offer generous living spaces and are complimented by

designer kitchens and quality bathrooms,” Rob says.

“It’s important to us that our subdivisions have

appealing streetscapes and we avoid having

streets with rows of repetitive house designs. Our

designers work hard to ensure each home has its

own individuality and it contributes well to the in-built

environment.

“Enterprise Homes has gained a solid reputation for

the quality of our workmanship and the delivery of

our after-sales service should any remedial work be

required. This is reflected in our annual sales with

no less than 30 per cent of our orders coming from

repeat clients or client referrals,” he says.

“We even have some third-generation clients, and

many other clients who are in their second or third

Enterprise home.”

With quality being the focus in every aspect of their

home construction, Enterprise Homes consciously

takes a well measured and organised 26 weeks

to complete their homes, whereas many housing

companies try to get homes built in 18 weeks, or under

in many cases, Rob says.

“We give our tradespeople agreed, generous time and

a safe environment to execute their job. This way they

can get it done safely and to the highest standards,

without tripping over other subcontractors.

“Enterprise Homes has been working with our subcontractors

and supply base for many years. During

this time, we have forged many strong and trusting

relationships and we have full confidence in the quality

of workmanship and materials we are provided.

“So, whether you are starting out on the home

ownership journey, or wanting to move into a highquality

home, small through to large, we have the

designs, price points and locations to meet your

requirements. Give us a call on 348 5189, and check

out our website, www.enterprisehomes.co.nz.”

Successful season

for local league club

It has been another tremendous year, both on and off

the field, for the Hornby Rugby League Football Club

president Brent Tomlinson says, with many highlights

for this “big little club”.

“Our junior numbers grew again, with Hornby fielding

at least one team in every grade offered by CRL, if

not two. Every team from 11’s through to Premiers

experienced finals football, with four teams winning

their respective grand finals – 11’s, 12’s,16’s and 18’s.”

The club’s presidents side played an undefeated

season and won the CRL 10-a-side tournament.

“Our premier side had an outstanding season, playing

some very attractive football. They made another

Canterbury Grand final, unfortunately losing the game.

However, their efforts have been recongnised with nine

of them being selected to represent Canterbury in the

National Provincial Competition (Canterbury Bulls),”

Brent says.

The players are: Tevin Arona, James Baxendale,

Regan Stanton, Jordan Coleman, Caius Faatili, Brad

Campbell, Keletisia (David) Tongotongo, Rulon Nutira

and Caleb Tohovaka.

The Bulls assistant coach is the club’s premier coach

Breakfast Bolognese

Ingredients

• 400-500g Quality Mark beef mince

• 2 tablespoons olive oil

• 2 red capsicums, finely chopped

• 1 large brown onion, finely chopped

• 2-3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

• 2 heaped tablespoons tomato paste

• 1 400g can chopped tomatoes

plus ¼ can of water

• 1 tsp dried oregano

• 1 tsp dried basil OR handful chopped

fresh basil

• 1 dessertspoon balsamic vinegar

• salt and pepper to taste

• 4 eggs

• 4 pieces of whole grain sour-dough

bread

• 2 tablespoons parsley,

chopped for garnish

• 25g Parmesan for garnish

Method

Heat a splash of oil on medium heat

and add onion, cooking until it becomes

caremelised. Add garlic and cook for a

further minute. Add mince, dried oregano

and dried basil and fry until browned.

(If adding mushrooms and courgette or

any other veges add toward the end of

this stage). Cook until vegetables have

softened.

Add tomato paste and fry for one minute,

then add chopped tomatoes and simmer

over gentle heat until the sauce has thickened

– about 20 minutes. Add balsamic

vinegar and season with salt and pepper

according to taste.

Create four hollows in the bolognese

mixture and drop an egg in each hollow.

Keeping pan on a low-medium

heat, cover pan with lid until the eggs are

cooked through but yolks still runny. It

takes longer to poach the eggs in the bolognese

mixture than poaching in water

so patience is essential. Serve mince and

one egg on toasted sourdough bread and

garnish with chopped parsley.

Chef’s tips

• Boost the breakfast vege and add 1 cup

chopped mushrooms and/or 1-2 small

grated courgettes

• For an even richer sauce add an extra

tin of tomatoes and reduce the sauce

down longer.

• Break eggs into individual pouring

bowls before pouring into the sauce.

• You can poach the eggs seperately then

add to the sauce.

• Use leftover bolognese sauce from the

night before.

Travel bags to suit

every customer’s needs

If you and your family are planning a holiday and need

a new suitcase or two, you can’t do better than browse

through the extensive selection at Just Bagz. Located

in Dressmart Hornby, the store is filled with bags of

every type, the main focus being on travel bags for all

budgets and requirements.

Owner/operators Graham and Julieann Griffiths have

extensive experience in the industry and can advise

customers on the right bag for their needs. The range

includes quality luggage from leading manufacturers

such as Samsonite, Eminent, Riccardo and Tosca,

which are available in a wide selection of colours,

designs and sizes.

For example, the new Tosca range, which has just arrived,

includes a very attractive blue, a pretty shade

of peach, as well as red, white, black and a stylish

leopard-skin print.

When selecting luggage, customers have the choice of

hard or soft types, and this comes down to personal

preference, Graham says. He also points out that

modern luggage is now much more user-friendly, with

90 per cent of bags now having four wheels, making

them very easy to manoeuvre and transport. For

security, the majority of today’s bags also have built-in

TSA locks.

Just Bagz also has a range of travel accessories

including locks and adaptors, passport holders and

luggage labels.

Backpacks are always popular with travellers, and Just

Bagz has a wide selection of these – adult sizes in various

styles, sizes and colours, and children’s styles with

novelty designs of their favourite cartoon characters.

Also on display are wallets, shoulder bags and handbags

in both leather and man-made materials, in a

wide range of prices.

So, call in and have a chat to Graham or Julieann. They

will be very happy to offer advice on the right luggage

and accessories for your travel needs.

Welcome relief

for allergy sufferers

Many of us are happy to see the arrival of spring and

the warmer weather, but for hay fever sufferers, the

new season may not be so welcome. For them, spring

and summer can mean sore, irritated eyes, sneezing

and blocked noses, sinus infections, tiredness

and poor sleep, which can all add up to time off from

school and work, and reduced performance when sufferers

do attend.

And with one out of every five New Zealanders suffering

from allergic rhinitis, that’s quite an impact.

However, help is at hand thanks to the South Island

Allergy Service. Based at Riccarton Clinic Medical

Centre, 6 Yaldhurst Road, their team of highly experienced

and qualified specialists offers a technique

called desensitisation or immunotherapy. This encourages

the body to build up tolerance to whatever sparks

the allergic reaction.

The first step is skin-prick testing, an almost painless

process to identify exactly which allergen sets off your

reactions. Then, the desensitisation process begins,

usually at home and as early as possible before the

hay fever season begins in earnest.

In addition to hay fever, the Allergy Service team uses

this technique to treat many other concerns such as

food allergies and intolerances, which are common

and can be life-threatening. Some symptoms such as

hives, eczema, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea are

obvious, but other symptoms, especially in children,

can be confused as general eczema, reflux or colic.

Testing and accurate diagnoses can put parents’

minds at rest, and immunotherapy can begin a gentle

process to reduce the allergic reaction.

Other allergens can be found in the air that we

breathe. Dander from the much-loved family pet, dust

mites and mould can result in rashes, swollen eyes

and asthma. Trying to avoid these triggers is a great

solution, but not always possible, so again, accurate

diagnoses will help determine just what is the cause

and what can be done to minimise symptoms.

To find out more about their services and this effective

and potentially life-changing technique, call (03) 361

0400 or visit www.allergyservice.co.nz

Riccarton Clinic’s purpose-built premises at Church Corner.

Modern healthcare in two different settings

The third-busiest medical facility in Christchurch,

Riccarton Clinic at Church Corner has been providing

GP services and urgent medical care for almost three

decades, treating thousands of patients every year.

The continued growth of the clinic prompted the purchase

and re-modelling of a nearby residential property,

which was transfomed into a general practice suite.

Acccording to the clinic’s general manager Mark Darvill

it is “deliberately quite different from our existing,

purpose-built facility”.

With its period features, the charming mid-century

building, located at 20 Brake Street, creates a calm environment

for both medical staff and patients.

The original wallpaper and Axminster carpeting were

retained where possible and beautiful rimu flooring has

also been exposed and lovingly restored. Adding to the

ambience, are the desks, beds and other items of furniture

sourced by the Riccarton Clinic staff to fit with the

peaceful, period style.

“it’s like stepping back in time.” Mark says. “The look and

feel of the property invokes a calmness and wonder in

everyone who visits.”

Patients are offered the convenience of four carparks

and a disabled parking space, ramped access at the

rear, and additional parking nearby. The beautiful gardens

feature many original roses (some over 50 years

old), established camelias and other shrubs. Indeed, the

garden won a prestigious Community Board award two

years running.

The facilities at Riccarton Clinic’s Church Corner site,

which deals with both scheduled appointments, and

urgent care without appointments between 8am and

8pm, were purpose-built to provide health care in a

modern, clinical setting. In contrast, the GP rooms at 20

Brake Street offer up-to-date health care, 9am to 5pm,

in an atmosphere of old-fashioned charm.

To book an appointment at either site, or to find out

about all the services offered by the Riccarton Clinic,

Regional holidays

in Europe

a popular choice

Bookings for the 2020 holiday season are well underway

at House of Travel in Hornby, with a strong trend

towards regional trips in Europe.

“More of our customers are choosing to spend three

or four weeks in one European country, rather than

visiting several countries in one trip,” says business

owner Paula Waldeck.

Popular countries for these in-depth holidays include

Croatia and Italy, she says.

“For example, the Puglia region in Italy, which is a real

‘foodie’ area, is an up-and-coming destination, and we

can arrange for our customers to stay in traditional

Trullo houses.”

There are also walking and cycling trips available in

Italy, where visitors can enjoy the beauty of the Italian

countryside at a leisurely pace, or for those wanting

to explore via a faster mode of transport, small group

Vespa tours are available.

Another increasingly sought-after holiday option is

cruising, Paula says, with Croatia high on the list of

preferred options. There are seven-night cruises on

small ships accommodating just 40 passengers. They

visit a different Adriatic island every day, such as Hvar,

Korchula and Mljet, where passengers can explore the

area and sample the local delicacies.

“Cruises leave from either Dubrovnik or Split, and

we can put together an island-hopping itinerary that

will give customers a wonderful cruising experience

around this beautiful country,” she says.

South Pacific cruising is becoming increasingly popular

too, with cruises sailing around New Zealand and

Australia, allowing people the opportunity to sample a

cruise before taking a longer one further afield.

“The added benefit of a cruising holiday, of course,

is that it caters for all generations – everyone finds

plenty to enjoy on a cruise ship,” Paula says.

After slipping down the destination list in recent years,

Greece is on the way back up, with many people

choosing to spend time there for some R&R after a

busy itinerary in Europe, Paula says.

“Again, we can put together an island-hopping itinerary

with travel via the high-speed ferries, giving our

customers the opportunity to take in the sights of the

popular Greek islands such as Santorini, Mykonos,

Rhodes and Crete.”

Closer to home, places like Fiji and Bali are experiencing

massive growth in visitor numbers.

“Our customers know these destinations very well,

what type of accommodation they prefer, such as a

villa or resort, and they know they get good value for

money,” Paula says.

House of Travel Hornby recently celebrated its fifth

year in business, and Paula and her team thank customers

for their ongoing support and look forward to

organising many exciting and memorable holidays

over the next five years and beyond.

Wycola Hair Design

New hair salon owner back where she started

For experienced hairdresser Heather Jackson, her 35-year career has

come full circle. This week she has taken over the ownership of the

Wycola Avenue salon where she started her apprenticeship all those

years ago.

Originally called the Jon Salon, the business has relocated twice

within the shopping strip in Wycola Avenue, Hei Hei, with the

name being changed to Wycola Hair Design. The most recent

move to new, refurbished premises was in 2017.

The previous owner, who had the business for 15 years,

has retired, giving Heather the opportunity to go back to

her original workplace as the proud owner. Her extensive

experience in the hairdressing industry has included working in

and managing salons for 16 years in the Papanui area, and the

last 10 years in Hornby.

Her skills and passion for her craft have gained her a long list of

loyal clients, who have followed her from salon to salon, and she is

thrilled to welcome them, and new clients to Wycola Hair Design.

“Clients become like your family,” says Heather. “I have seen them grow up

and now I do their children’s hair too.”

Her part-time stylist Robyn has worked in the salon for eight years and also has a loyal clientele. Both

of them offer the full range of hairdressing services, including cuts, colouring, perms, sets, styling and

blow-waving.

“I love what I do, and I’m excited to now be running my own salon. It was the right time to do it,”

Heather says.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

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 and

wellbeing.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

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

(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 will know if

it is going to work for them or not, without

financial commitment.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

A natural remedy for good health

Black Seed oil is often referred to as “The Remedy

for all things.” The Prophet Muhammad called it “a

remedy for every illness except death.” Black seed

oil is extracted from black cumin seeds (Nigella

sativa) & has been used therapeutically for over

3,300 years, since its first reported discovery in

King Tutankhamun’s tomb. For thousands of years

it has been used by practitioners of Ayurvedic &

Chinese traditional medicine for an endless list of

conditions, from migraines to diabetes & cancer.

Since 1959 scientists have carried out over 600

peer review studies proving many of its remarkable

health benefits. It has been shown to be medicinally

very effective against various illnesses including:

cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, inflammatory

conditions, infertility, neurological & mental illness

as well as various infectious diseases due to bacterial,

fungal, parasitic, & viral infections. According

to the “National Institute of Health” superbugs

are becoming a significant public health risk

as they are virtually impossible to treat. In the

USA an increasing number of hospital patients

are developing infections from superbugs with

more than 90,000 of these patients dying every

year. Researchers at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical

College wanted to confirm the benefits of black

seed oil against these superbugs compared with

common antibiotics. According to the study,

“out of 144 strains of superbugs tested, most of

which were resistant to a number of antibiotics,

97 were inhibited by the black seed oil. Microbes

or micro-organisms have been linked to most

disease & there are few things known to be

as effective against them as the black seed oil.

Croatian scientists studying mice with cancers

found that the phytochemicals in black seed oil

resulted in a 52% decrease in tumor cells. Diabetes

drugs can have numerous side effects but research

by the “Indian Council of Medicine” found that

black seed oil helps regenerate pancreatic cells &

decreases elevated serum glucose in both type 1 &

type 2 diabetes.

Amazing Herbs in the USA produce the original

& #1 selling organically sourced premium black

seed oil. When looking at unbiased reviews of

this oil on the internet it is amazing to see the

incredible results people are getting with it.

Comments like: miracle product, this product is

amazing, it works!!! It really works! are common.

that is sweeping the globe. This machine is based

on LED technology and offers eleven beauty and

healing treatments within one facial mask.

LED was invented by NASA as they were

looking for a light source to grow plants in space,

from this they found that it had amazing skin

cell rejuvenation and it wasn’t long before LED

infrared was used in hospitals around the world.

Doctors then noticed patients started looking

younger whilst under a program of RED LED

light treatments after their surgery and injuries,

which led them to study colour. It was found that

skin cells recognise colour and that each colour

has a job to play in the performance of the living

skin cell.

Anti-Ageing – Wrinkles, Age spots, Scaring

Anti-Acne – Antibacterial, Reduces
