Alicia Wolf is the Owner of The Dizzy Cook, a diet and lifestyle website for anyone with migraine, an Ambassador for the Vestibular Disorder Association, and a patient advisor for Miles for Migraine. She also contributes articles on Migraine Again and Healthline. After struggling with chronic vestibular migraine, she realized there weren’t many upbeat resources for people following a migraine diet or patient information on VM so she created thedizzycook.com. Her mission is to pass on critical information so patients don’t have to see 7 different doctors to be diagnosed and treated. Alicia's new cookbook The Dizzy Cook: Managing Migraine with More Than 90 Comforting Recipes and Lifestyle Tips is available almost everywhere books are sold. You can find her on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
