I have those same questions.
I'm also wondering if this has been considered:
Archive this forum (#4) and start a new forum (#5). #5 could be marked clearly that posts won't be answered by Andreas himself, but by people who know Andreas' work.
There is SO much information in these forums, and I would guess that some people aren't using them anymore because 1) there is SO much information to dig through, and 2) they see that it is no longer active.
Also, has anybody read "Heart Disease No More!" or "Simple Steps To Total Health" yet? They look good, and I'm wondering if they contain new info that isn't included in "Timeless Secrets of Health & Rejuvenation."
