I'm anemic due to fibroids.I would like to go on a strict vegan diet for a month .To cleanse my body.Is it safe?No meat , eggs, dairy or fish .
Don't do it: Please forgive my frankness. Your body "cleanses" itself. You're an adult, and you know you're not going to get rid of a tumor that's making you bleed by eating only vegetables. You're iron-deficient but you say you're taking your iron pills "from time to time". You owe it to yourself and to those who love you to take real care of your health, restore your iron, and stop reading fantasy websites. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is a vegan diet healthy for kids? I became a vegetarian when i was a young teenager. More recently i turned vegan because i was having health problems caused by dairy. Because i became a vegetarian when i was so young, i never learned how to cook meat. I
Whether : Whether to eat meat or dairy is a personal choice. With that said - to have a balanced diet, a vegan needs to have a significant knowledge base. Vegan diets are often low on vitamin b 12, calcium, vitamin d, iron and other nutrients. If these are not obtained through the diet, there needs to be appropriate forms of supplementation. If you plan to raise your children as vegans, i really suggest you thoroughly educate yourself on the matter. It takes much more careful planning for your kids to fill their nutritional requirements if they are vegans. I would also suggest you work with a good nutritionist, to ensure that children's nutritional requirements are met. A possible option could be a primarily vegan diet with some dairy and /or meat supplementation. Raising children on a vegan diet is not child abuse. It can however, be trickier than a vegetarian diet or eating that includes fish and meat. If you are not vegan based on moral issues and your main concern is about cooking separate meals- how about making the same basic meals for the whole family and augmenting the children's meals to ensure that their intake is balanced? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
