I have been vegan for 5 yrs and my husband for 15... we both eat quite healthy however he has had serious dental problems including a root canal and multiple fillings with more to come. I had an all vegan pregnancy with my son who is now 2 1/2 he is very healthy and vibrant but has yet to be to a dentist... I more recently had my second baby... they are 22 months apart... While I was pregnant with her I craved eggs tremendously but never "gave in" now she is 7 months old and has no "defects" or anything but seems less vital than my son... I think my body was depleted because she has a weaker immune system and a respiratory issue we took her to a homeopath about and he asked if I ever craved eggs during pregnancy because her constitution was "calcera carbonica" that can often relate to a mineral deficiency in utero. I am now having severe problems with my teeth. I have at least 4 painful cavities and other tooth decay that is not yet painful but present. I bought "cure tooth decay" and researched WAP a lot of what they say makes sense and I have yet to find a lot of good hard vegan evidence that says otherwise. I am now breastfeeding both of them and it is taking an incredible toll on my health. My teeth are chipping, I am extremely tired, etc etc. I really don't know where to turn.. I am looking for good solid evidence of where vegans can get protein, phosphorus, k2, fat soluble vitamins A and D.... without foods like soy, beans, nuts and grains that contain high amounts of phytic acid which inhibits the absorption of these minerals. Because without those mentioned above where do I get my protein and what is left to eat besides veg? (which I love) haha. Anyway sorry if this is scattered, I am not all that together lately. Any help or support would be greatly appreciated. I am looking for scientific proof or real life experience please... I am a seasoned vegan but "it's best for the animals, enviroment, and health" arguments are starting to fade as my health fails.
