Maybe it is oils that we need. There was a movie years ago about these people who got seriously ill with some kind of painful muscular disease and they got cured with something like 1/8 or 1/4 cup (don't quote me)of olive oil a day. Don't remember the title, the affliction or the amount! Sorry! PS. Read somewhere the diet should be 80% alkaline and 20% acidic. Sounds like that might be good info but don't recall where I read it.
