Ash's Random Post Dater

Use this form to set ALL posts in the selected category to a random date between these two values.

This will update the post dates on ALL posts within the selected category/tag (or ALL posts in your wordpress blog if both are set to default). Please do not use if you do not want to reset ALL post dates. I do not recommend using this on a site with lots of live posts - especially if you use a permalink structure that includes the date in the url. I use it on new sites (add all content, then set all posts to random date in the past). Use at your own risk! You will lose the current post date time (it only changes the date posted - nothing else)

Only use one of the following two. Leave both at their defaults ("ALL CATEGORIES"/"ALL TAGS") to reorder ALL posts

Reorder post dates in this category:


(leave on "ALL CATEGORIES" if you don't want to reorder all within a certain category)
OR

Reorder post dates with this tag slug (use the tag slug, not the tag):


(leave on "ALL TAGS" if you don't want to reorder all within a certain category)

Earliest Day - how many days back do you want the maximum one?

(put at 0 to put all posts in future)

Latest Day - Leave at 0 to make sure all posts are BACK dated.

(leave 0 to put all posts in past)

For example if you wanted your posts randomly set to a date in the next 30 days set the latest day as 30, the earliest day at 0

If you wanted your posts randomly set to a day in the previous 180 days then set the latest day as 0 and the earliest day as 180.

It randomly sets each post - the posts are not spaced out at exact intervals. It will readjust ALL your posts. Please make sure that you want ALL your posts to be randomised.

(Clicking this will randomly reorder all posts)

DHEA Overview Information

Supplements I Personally Use & Store I Buy From

DHEA OVERVIEW INFORMATIONDHEA

DHEA is a hormone that is naturally made by the human body. It can be made in the laboratory from chemicals found in wild yam and soy. However, the human body cannot make DHEA from these chemicals, so simply eating wild yam or soy will not increase DHEA levels. Don’t be misled by wild yam and soy products labeled as “natural DHEA.”

DHEA is used for slowing or reversing aging, improving thinking skills in older people, and slowing the progress of Alzheimer’s disease.

Athletes and other people use DHEA to increase muscle mass, strength, and energy. But DHEA use is banned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

DHEA is also used by men for erectile dysfunction (ED), and by healthy women and women who have low levels of certain hormones to improve well-being and sexuality.

Some people try DHEA to treat systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), weak bones (osteoporosis), multiple sclerosis (MS), low levels of steroid hormones (Addison’s disease), depression, schizophrenia, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and to slow the progression of Parkinson’s disease. It is also used for preventing heart disease, breast cancer, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.

DHEA is used for weight loss, for decreasing the symptoms of menopause, and for boosting the immune system.

People with HIV sometimes use DHEA to ease depression and fatigue.

Women who have passed menopause sometimes use DHEA inside the vagina for strengthening the walls of the vagina and for increasing bone mineral density.

Like many dietary supplements, DHEA has some quality control problems. Some products labeled to contain DHEA have been found to contain no DHEA at all, while others contained more than the labeled amount.

DHEA is being investigated and may eventually be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a prescription drug for treating systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and improving bone mineral density in women with lupus who are taking steroid drugs for treatment. The FDA is still studying the pharmaceutical company’s application for approval.

How does it work?

DHEA is a “parent hormone” produced by the adrenal glands near the kidneys and in the liver. In men, DHEA is also secreted by the testes. It is changed in the body to a hormone called androstenedione. Androstenedione is then changed into the major male and female hormones.

DHEA levels seem to go down as people get older. DHEA levels also seem to be lower in people with certain conditions like depression. Some researchers think that replacing DHEA with supplements might prevent some diseases and conditions.
