International studies place New Zealand second after the UK for asthma incidence, sixth in the world for eczema, and tenth in the world for allergy, with one in six New Zealand adults, and one in four children experiencing asthma symptoms. Also 70 to 80 percent of asthma in New Zealand is asso- ciated with allergy. For most people, asthma, allergies or eczema are chronic conditions, often lasting a life- time, however the normal medical treatments only provide relatively short term relief of symptoms, and most carry significant long term health risks if not used appropri- ately. Asthma remains the most common cause of admission to hospital for children. Many people with asthma think they have their condition under control when they don't -- they have just accepted the symptoms as part of life,'' says Linda Thompson from Asthma New Zealand. In a response to the need for improved care for those with asthma, allergies and eczema a new specialist practice, Auckland Atopy Clinic has been established in Ponsonby. It aims to address the short- comings in the standard medical treatment using a holistic, inte- grative care model bringing together the best in both conven- tional medicine and proven com- plimentary medical approaches to, in conjunction with the patient's GP, better manage the patient's condition, and more importantly the underlying immune imbalance at the core of most asthma, allergies and eczema. Diet, lifestyle, and a genetic predisposition (family history) play major roles in not just the frequency and severity of asthma, allergy or eczema symptoms, but in the management of the immune issues underlying the conditions. Family history is an important risk factor for allergic rhinitis and asthma. Environmental exposures in pregnancy including diet, bac- terial exposure, and maternal smoking, can modify a baby's immune function. Poor diet has also been linked to asthma. Meanwhile a healthy diet high in fruits, vegetables, and grains, or a Mediterranean diet', can pro- vide some protection against wheezing and asthma in child- hood, while high levels (5-6g a day) of DHA, one of the comp- onents of fish oil, can have a ben- eficial impact on the outcome of atopic eczema. As with any chronic health condition, while for most patients pharmaceuticals remain at the core of controlling their symptoms of asthma, allergies and eczema, there needs to be a more holistic approach to better managing these conditions in order to both enable optimal long term health outcomes and minimise the risks of long term medication,'' Says Craig Rhodes of Auckland Atopy Clinic.

Company Theatre's Music Hall is a great way to end the year with a laugh and a song. Excerpts from over 60 old-time songs are in the show. Based on the popular Victorian Music Halls, the full evening's enter- tainment involves chorus and solo items, both comic and serious. Each new item is introduced by MC, The Chairman' Mr Lee Chambers in top hat and tails. Participation is encouraged -- you'll be asked to cheer the her- oine and hiss the villain in the melodrama, The Seamier Side of Life'. The show is directed by Ruth Chapman who has over 25 years' musi- cal theatre experience. Some of the 16 chorus members have never been in a big production such as this before, whereas others are veterans of the stage. A highlight of the evening is the perform- ance by Keith Leggett, who toured for 16 years with the original Black and White Minstrel Show. The show opened at the Victoria Palace in England and was a 1960s favourite with both live and television audiences. Another highlight is the wonderful duet ren- dering of Galway Bay' by soprano Delwynne Win- ter and tenor Greg Stockwell. The large cast has given plenty of challenge to wardrobe mistress Cathie Sandy, who spent hours researching and recreating the elegant Victorian costumes. There are five chorus brackets, each with a complete costume change. Bring your sing- ing voices for a singalong at the end. There is also a tal- ented five-piece band on stage, led by pianist Colin Roderick, under the musical direction of Lee Chambers. The lighting is by Scott Thomas who has just finished working on 42nd Street' at the Civic. The show runs from Saturday November 13 to 27. Tickets for the opening night include a free glass of wine or bub- bly. Early booking is advised. There are two Sunday matinee performances at 2pm on November 14 and 21. The Saturday November 20 perform- ance will celebrate Com- pany Theatre's 30th anniversary and is reserved for members and invited friends. For all other perform- ances phone Richard at The Rose Centre on 445-9900. Prices are $25 with $20 conc- essions. www.company theatre.co.nz.
