Geoff Nicholas The Best Disabled Golf Player

The name Geoff Nicholas has become synonymous with the legends of golfing greats in Australia and internationally. Geoff is an inspiration to the ever-growing number of amputees turning up at golfing tournaments across the nation and overseas. His dedication and determination, not to mention his achievements, resulted in the Order of Australia being bestowed on him in 2004.

Geoff Nicholas was born on July 1, 1961 at Southport, Queensland, with both legs severely deformed below the knees. He was one of the last victims of Thalidomide. Unable to get adequate medical treatment in Queensland, the Nicholas family moved to Sylvania in Sydney and over the next 12 years Geoff underwent seven operations. By age 13 his right leg had to be amputated and his left had been partially reconstructed using bone from his right leg.

Geoff clearly recalls his first game of golf at age 14, playing with three school friends at the Kareela Public Course in Sydney. The year was 1975 and Geoff admits to having felt more than a little apprehensive as he stood one-legged on the first tee ready to tee off. Not surprisingly, his first swing moved the golf ball 20-odd metres and it took a further five strokes of equal quality before the ball would land on the par-three green. He then six putted to score a 9-over par 12. “I remember thinking at the time that there was definitely room for improvement in my game,” he recalls.

Geoff completed the nine holes, walking the entire distance. The following day he suffered the consequences with blisters and boils on both legs and severe pain. It was these excruciating years that provided Geoff with the hardened resolve to become a golfer of repute. Between 1978 and 1981 Geoff overcame the problems of balance and his gruelling regimen of constant practice started paying dividends.

In 1981 Geoff moved to a single figure handicap of 9, an event which he describes as his biggest thrill. In 1983 he joined the Lakes, a world renowned championship course built around the lakes that formed Sydney’s original water supply. Practice paid dividends and between 1984 and 1986 Geoff’s handicap shot down from 9 to 4. The determined 22-year-old was immediately drafted into the club’s Eric Apperly Shield team, and he became an integral part of the Lakes’ success that year. The most notable feature of this improvement was in his short game.

In 1985 Geoff was invited to trial with the Lakes Pennant side and won a place in the 8-man squad, where he won three of his six matches in a relatively undistinguished season. Later that year he qualified for the club championship but was beaten in the first round by a seasoned campaigner. In 1986 he was elevated in the order to number 3 and won four of his next five matches. Later that year Geoff again qualified in the Club Championship for the match play rounds and after a close opening round encounter with former Eric Apperly Shield team mate, Stuart McAskill, Geoff defeated three of Australia’s outstanding amateur golfers, Trevor Wood, Roy Vandersluis and Colin Kaye over 36 holes to win the championship.

Geoff won the championship again in 1989 and in between won a number of other major amateur events including the Lakes Bowl, the Cowra Easter Tournament, and the Mollymook amateur. Entering the US Amputee Tournament for the first time in 1989 Geoff had his putter stolen the night before the championship commenced. With a strange putter he was lacking his usual confidence on the greens and finished runner up in the event.

The following year, 1990, marked Geoff’s arrival as an elite performer. Entering as The Lakes club champion, Geoff had an excellent 5-2 record for the pennant season followed by a win in the challenging Bonnie Doon medal. In June he went to Wales and there won the inaugural British Open Amputee Championship by the astonishing margin of 13 shots. Then in August, at the Country Club in North Carolina, Geoff won the US National Amputee Championships by the equally impressive margin of 8 shots.

He followed this with a win in the US National Amputee Match Play Championship thus becoming undisputed world champion in Amputee Golf. In 1998 Geoff became the first amputee golfer to earn his PGA Tour Card. Geoff dominate Amputee & Disabled golf internationally in the 1990’s and 2000’s and earned the reputation as one of the true superstars of golf.

The measure of Geoff Nicholas’ success can be found in his humble, yet inspirational, attitude to the sport – and life. All in all Geoff Nicholas has been crowned World Amputee Golf Champion 12 times in the past 20 years. Us mere mortals can only admire Geoff for his achievements and stand in awe of the guts and determination demonstrated by such a humble, down to earth and likeable man.

Kitchen Modifications for Disabled Cooks

Golfers are renowned for their gourmet tastes at the top end of things, and disabled golfers are no different. After a challenging day on the links, it is a real pleasure to sit down to an elegant repast, perhaps, accompanied by a glass of vino or a sparkling ale. Three to four hours physically and mentally concentrating on the fairways and greens demands some nutritious refuelling. Perhaps, for the disabled golfer it is, even more, challenging. Golf, however, is a great leveller, and in this game everybody has a handicap. What about cooking at home?

Kitchen Modifications for Disabled Cooks

I have always considered the traditional wheelchair to be poorly designed. Sure, it can provide locomotion and a place to sit. It does, however, immediately place the occupant far beneath the eye line of a standing human being. I would like to see wheelchairs that are more than just mobile chairs. A device that could lift up the occupant, so that he or she could carry on a conversation on more equal terms with standing human beings. This is important if disabled people are going to be seen as more than their disability; it could stop the world from looking down upon them, all the time.

In the kitchen, too, this raising up would allow disabled home cooks to wield a chef’s knife over a chopping board. The kitchen modifications for disabled cooks would be dependant upon the height they could achieve in relation to the necessary height of the bench tops and stove. Making kitchen improvements means that more people can enjoy the art of cooking. Cooking is a creative act and it can add to a person’s sense of self-esteem and achievement. Imagine cooking for loved ones, family and friends despite your disability.

Economic constraints have always been emphasised when talking about things like wheelchair design. Perhaps the National Disability Insurance Scheme will allow a more reasonable and visionary discussion about things such as this. Surely, a hydraulic lift and tilt function within a new modified wheelchair would be worth the investment if it transformed the lives of those who inhabited it. Imagine the expanded work opportunities that would be made possible by this invention or engineering feat. It is time to lift the bar when it comes to disability in this country. Equal opportunities are based on a level playing field and right now that does not exist, even in the kitchen.

Getting Fit With A Disability: Why Nothing Is A Hindrance

Who says disability should get in the way of your desire to get fit and healthy? With so many options for exercise now, there’s no reason why anybody – and not just the disabled, should just sit down and not prioritize their health. A cleansing diet is good, but there are many options in this day and age that definitely don’t discriminate no matter what and how your body is. Sometimes, it’s all a mentality. If you have the drive to get fit and be healthy, then get up and find a program that caters best to whatever condition you are in. If you are on the lookout for options and fitness trends that can work for you, then you are in the right place.

It may come off as a surprise for many, but most exercise regimens are very doable by every person. Most fitness programs can easily be tweaked as needed, they will still result to optimal results either way. If a person with disability is more comfortable being in a space with people who are just like them, there are many classes out there as well offered by gyms that cater to their needs. Some even have instructors who are disabled as well. Not only does this improve morale, but it will provide people with disability a stronger sense of health and a clear path of wellness and fitness.

Made especially for you

Some of the special classes and exercise programs that are available are for flexibility, strength training, and cardiovascular purposes. These areas reduce disable people’s risk levels of getting strokes, increase their muscle strength, and to help reduce body pain. This is great for them, as they are improving their overall lives as well. Other than all that has been mentioned, it is very important for them to keep active and to keep their body moving. It is known, not only for disabled people, that it isn’t good for your health just to stay in one position for a prolonged period of time. So if they are confined in a wheelchair, there are many chair-centric regimens that they can do easily.

Going on a cleansing diet also works well, as a big factor of fitness is monitoring food and nutrition intake. It is always a good decision for anyone to eat clean, as they reduce the risk of getting various illnesses from unhealthy eating habits. When going on this type of diet, some foods that are usually consumed are whole grains, natural fruit, and foods aren’t processed. This is easy for people with disability as this diet doesn’t discriminate. It requires minimal assistance in meal prep, and ingredients are readily available in your neighborhood supermarkets. Eating well alongside a solid workout program will do wonders for any type of person.

Disability is not a hinder for greatness

Probably one of the most notable figures for disabled people who aim to get their body on check is Natalie du Toit, a swimmer from South Africa. She has lost her leg in a freak accident back in 2001, but that didn’t stop her from being an Olympian even after that horrible incident. In 2004, she represented her country in swimming at the 2004 Paralympics. Not only that, but she actually qualified for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing as well.

Another notable figure would be Natalya Partyka of Poland. Despite having no right arm, she still competed in the 2004 Paralympics and qualified for the Beijing Olympics for table tennis. With this huge achievement by these figures, anybody with a disability can do great things. If all people had the same level of determination as they had, then everyone else in the world would achieve greatness as well.

There are many benefits why people with disability should work on their fitness. Research says that working out improves sleeping patterns and reducing the likelihood of insomnia. It also keeps their heart strong and their muscles even more developed. In terms of morale, exercise has been known to be a highly effective antidepressant. There are so many good things that good health can bring, and this is enough reason for anybody to take the initiative to be healthier.

Consult with an expert

Before taking the plunge, a consultation with a doctor or a gym instructor is advised. Any fitness regimen should be crafted in such a way that no condition gets worse. Getting fitter and healthier is the priority here, and if done without consultation, it will do more harm than good. If you want to have a customized program, consult with an expert who will come up with the best one for you.

Disabled or not, nothing should hinder you from being fit and healthy. It must always be kept in mind that whatever condition you’re in is just a small facet of how you are, and the thought of being healthy and fit is universal. The fitness world does not discriminate, and every shape and size is welcome.

Health Care Insurance

DisabilityBenefits& Other Health Care Insurance Needs? Medical Credentialing Specialist to the Rescue

Medical credentialing companies have now become necessary in providing people with a network of insurance companies and health care service practitioners these companies tie up with. Each of these companies has a medical credentialing specialist who is responsible for providing the key services for the credentialing company. These services include facilitating disability benefit claims from insurance providers, as well as claiming for other health care insurance benefits.

These specialists are responsible for knowing the eligibility and procedure in claiming the particular benefits from a partnered insurance provider. So if you have doubts on which insurance providers to sign up with, then you should look for one which partners with a credentialing company. In cases where disputes arise between the insurance provider and the claimant, the credentialing specialist can act as mediator to settle these types of arguments.

Disability Benefits for Australians

Those with a family member having a disability are entitled to financial support by the government, in addition to the support that should be given by a specific private health care insurance provider. The medical credentialing specialist should know the eligibility and claim benefits for these situations.

Pension to Support Persons with Disability

Financial support is given for people with physical, psychiatric, or intellectual disability that prohibits them from working. Persons who are eligible are those:

  • who are between 16 years old and of Pension Age;
  • who are permanently blind;
  • who have been deemed as having physical, psychiatric, or intellectual impediment which led to them beingunable to work for more than 15 hours every week, or above the required minimum wage for the following 2 years, and have been in active participation for a Program of Support.

Financial Support for Children with Disability

There are government services such as the Youth Disability Supplement program and the Child Disability Assistance Payment program that help provide financial support to families with a child who has physical, psychiatric, or intellectual disability. These programs help cover the cost of caring for a child with a disability. There are insurance providers who also offer annual added benefits for this similar condition.

Financial Support for Persons with Disability Aged 16 Years Old and Above

There are a number of support payment programs that can help provide financial aid to families with a family member 16 years or older who is incapacitated to work or is restrained to a limited amount of work because of a disability.

The Mobility Allowance helps subsidies transport costs for people with disability and who cannot use the public transportation without assistance, on a temporary basis or for a longer period.

The Pension for Disability Support is another form of financial support for people 16 years of age and older who are restrained from working because of a physical, psychiatric, or intellectual disability.

The Sickness Allowance provides temporary payment for people who are self-employed or employed in a company but can no longer work for a temporary or extended period of time due to certain medical conditions. Students who are unable to continue their study due to an injury or illness may also be eligible.

Private Health Care Insurance for Maximum Financial Disability Support

The current subsidy by the Australian government for people with disability is a tremendous help, especially for the rest of the family members who are caring for them. However, if you can afford an additional private health care insurance, then get one, so that you can increase your chances of worry-free financial burden in the future because anything can happen beyond your expectations.

Get maximum protection for your loved one with a disability, and choose an insurance provider that partners with a medical credentialing company because that shows the insurance company’s credibility, professionalism, and adherence to providing quality health care services to its customers.

a. Behavior at school/ place of work: inability to comply with requests.

b. Attitude towards job/ school: considered as a place/ source of discomfort.

c. Substance abuse: such people rarely abuse drugs.

g. Development appropriateness: regressive and immature.

h. Interpersonal relationships: they usually have difficulty in forming interpersonal relationships with colleagues/ school mates because of the belief that they’ll be rejected/ ignored.


What is stress?

According to Robert Kirby a psychologists, stress is a general feeling of pressure and strain. A little stress is desirable, healthy and also beneficial since it plays a significant role in motivation, reaction to a new environment and adaptation.

However, excessive stress is extremely dangerous because it significantly increases the risk of stroke, mental disorder (e.g. clinical depression), heart attack and ulcers.

Psychological stress is primarily caused by perceptions (real or imaginary) that may make someone be extremely anxious about a certain situation, especially if the individual strongly believes that his/her resources (usually finances) for dealing with challenges are insufficient for overcoming that particular problem.

Classification of stress

Psychological stress can be classified into four broad categories:

1. Good stress (also known as eustress)

2. Distress (bad stress)

3. Under-stress/ hypo-stress

4. Overstress/ hyper-stress

Psychologists recommend that people who wish to have productive lifestyles should strive to balance between hypo-stress and hyper-stress.

Spiritual healing

Robert Kirby spiritual healing can be defined as the process of transferring healing power from a spiritual source an individual who is sick/ unwell.

The healing power originates from God, passes through a spiritual healer who then transmits it into a recipient by physically placing his/her hands on him/ her (patient).

Spiritual healing can be used to treat nearly all medical conditions (but not everyone). Some patients are more responsive to this type of healing, while others are less receptive (because of various factors). Therefore, there are great variations in the results of healing processes.

Faith in the healing process as well as the healer significantly contributes to overall success, though it isn’t mandatory. In fact, some people believe that it’s not compulsory for the patient to have faith since actual healing is caused by spiritual energy.

Robert Kirby Sydney spiritual healing has the capacity to help people in a wide range of ways. The patient may either be completely or partially cured. In the second case, healing may enable the patient to deal with his/her situation in a way that is more effective and efficient.

It’s very rare for someone who has previously received healing to revert back to his/her old condition. This is because spiritual healing causes permanent change.

How To Implement An Effective Employee Health Program

As the cost of healthcare increases, employers are becoming more involved with their employees’ overall well-being. While this can be difficult for them, there are a few tips that as an employer you can follow to ensure that it does not affect your company’s return on investment, engagement levels and incentives.

Recognizing importance of employee health

If you have healthy employees in your workforce, you will avoid cases of absenteeism, reduction in disability employee claims and medical costs, and ultimately more productive employees. This is because their health is a key factor in the success of the company.

Research on programs

While there is no singular definition of what program you should use for your employees, you should endeavor to research on the available ways in which your employees can improve their health. Whether you opt to hold regular meetings to talk to them or send emails to them on certain articles that relate to health, the choice is yours.

Alternatively, you can seek the assistance of corporate health services which can create for you a program that suits your organization and encompasses all the employee needs. You can even arrange with them to have employee retreats on weekends to learn of ways to boost their health as well as increase teamwork.

Get senior level support

You should find ways to ask the senior level management to incorporate employee health into the vision and mission of the company. This is because without their support, the health program you choose won’t work. At times, if the management is not practicing good health that they are also receiving from the corporate health services they have, this will not motivate employees to practice good health and wellness that they should have.

Even an employee who has been having a disability may stop working to improve themselves simply because it is not working for the seniors yet it was working for them.

Define and measure goals

Quite often, a program will begin without clearly set goals. Since good health is a gradual process and not a sprint, the program should slowly progress employees to good health including those with disabilities such as obesity. This means that whatever program you arrange with the corporate health providers, it should have a clear objective in mind. For example, the program can encourage employees to walk more.

Don’t do it alone

Having people in the corporate health services field assist you implement the program either near your offices or at some other area can help in the effectiveness of the program. Thus, you should be able to first seek the opinion of employees of what they would like before proceeding to select one.

The success of the company is built on various factors. Depending on how you approach these matters such as health, the performance of your employees can either improve or worsen. Thus, if possible, getting corporate health services is the best option. This is because they are well informed of what is required in a program and can help you come up with one.

Nootropics in The Treatment of Anxiety

What are nootropics?

Nootropics are drugs that are used to treat cognitive disability in individuals. Over the years, there has been renewed interest in the role of these drugs in modern lifestyles. Part of the reason for this is that now, more than ever, many more people are living life on the fast lane. This lifestyle brings with it a host of conditions that affect one’s cognitive functions in varied ways. One of the most common conditions today is anxiety. Understanding how nootropics can be used for anxiety treatment is one of the medical ways in which this condition can be addressed.


Anxiety and its Effect on Cognitive Functioning

In the recent past, anxiety has been recognized as one of the most common disorder affecting people from all walks of life. This may be attributed to the fast-paced world we live in as well as the intense pressure associated with technology and modern advancements. Anxiety, to a small extent, is a prerequisite to getting through one’s daily chores, and is normal. When this anxiety is heightened, so much so that an individual cannot lead their lives normally, it becomes important to incorporate medical attention. This is where nootropics come in handy.

What Causes Anxiety?

Anxiety is an emotion that is generally unpleasant, and is often linked to tension, worry and discomfort. Biochemically, anxiety is brought about by a breakdown in the brain’s neurotransmitter system. This leads to a decrease in the levels of neurotransmitters, most notably GABA (gamma-Aminobutyric Acid). GABA is the main neurotransmitter in the brain, and anything that interferes with the concentration of this neurotransmitter is likely to cause anxiety.

How do Nootropics Work in the Treatment of Anxiety?

Nootropics used for anxiety treatment have a dual function: to decrease anxiety as well as address cognitive disability. In order to identify the ideal nootropics for this treatment, individuals may start their search in nootropic stacks. These stacks are, by definition, a combination of nootropics that may be taken at the same time as part of an extensive treatment plan.

For patients who prefer individual nootropic drugs to stacks, it is important to understand the different classes of anxiolytic nootropics available. Racetam is the first category of nootropics relevant for the management of anxiety. Examples of drugs in this category include Piracetam and Aniracetam, both of which have proven effective in treating anxiety and improving cognitive function.

Peptide nootropics are also another category of anxiolytic nootropics. These drugs are basically derived from peptides, the short chain amino acids that build proteins. A perfect example of drug in this category is L-Theanine. L-Theanine may be combined with a host of other compounds to effectively treat anxiety and improve basic cognitive functions.

Phenibut is one of the most popular additions to anxiety treatment plans. While it is not a nootropic, Phenibut works in synergy with nootropic drugs used in treating anxiety by working on GABA receptors in the brain. As a result, it is often manufactured and purchased alongside the cognitive enhancers.

Buying nootropics today is easy, considering the availability of multiple online platforms. This is why individuals seeking treatment for anxiety need not suffer in silence anymore. You can visit for more information.
