Chatting with Dr. Angela reminded me of the Chinese proverb that goes something like this:The same can be said about investing in our health. And that is exactly the theme that Dr. Angela MacDonald, a chiropractor in Maple Ridge, BC, helps us unpack in her chapter in Moody Bitch to Menopause Chick…and in this sneak preview interview. Dr. Angela wants all women to know these three things:Listen in to my conversation with Dr. Angela below.
Oh, I have these conversations on a daily basis! It seems that while many still don’t want to talk about menopause, a lot of us are still keen to know what are the secret solutions and magic wand solutions? We delight in the idea that there is a potion or magic fairy dust that can give us the quick fix. Perhaps that’s because the illusion of less work is appealing to us. I often say that there are no magic wands (other than getting informed and choosing the journey that’s right for you!)
Hormones naturally fluctuate throughout the month but they can also fluctuate un-naturally in response to lifestyle factors such as poor nutrition, liver toxicity, excess stress and not getting enough sleep. Fortunately, there are some simple steps that can be done to balance hormones naturally! The main female sex hormones are Estrogen, Progesterone and to a much lesser extent, Testosterone.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
