Alicia Wolf

Alicia was diagnosed with chronic Vestibular Migraine in 2016 after seeing multiple doctors that misdiagnosed her symptoms for months. Eventually losing her career to VM, she created The Dizzy Cook as a way to help others who were struggling to follow a strict migraine diet, and develops delicious head-friendly recipes while sharing her personal journey to recovery. Alicia’s focus is on presenting evidence-based natural treatments, along with finding relief through the joy of cooking. Her cookbook The Dizzy Cook: Managing Migraine with More Than 90 Recipes and Lifestyle Tips was released last April on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Target.

Alicia is heavily involved in the migraine community as she currently writes for “Migraine Again” and “Migraine Strong.” She also is the food editor for “My Chronic Brain” and plans local Dallas events for the migraine community through the national non-profit, Miles for Migraine. She is also a member of their patient advisory board. As an Ambassador for the Vestibular Disorder Association, Alicia continues to spread awareness about Vestibular Migraine by working with patients and advocates.
