She also contributes articles on Migraine Again and Healthline. After struggling with chronic vestibular migraine, she realized there were not 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 do not 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.
