A "vegan diet" can be almost any diet at all, as long as it does not contain any animal-derived products. So there are theoretically MILLIONS of ways to eat a vegan diet. If her current food choices are giving her trouble, she can change it around in all sorts of ways (more cooked food, less raw, more greens, less starchy food, etc), until she arrives at a diet with a variety of foods that she tolerates well and thrives on. Keeping a "food diary" may help a lot. That way she can figure out which foods cause trouble, and which ones don't. Tell her not to give up.
