"Vestibular migraine patients face enough challenges without having to worry about what they eat and drink. Unfortunately, many foods and beverages can be migraine triggers. In The Dizzy Cook, Alicia Wolf provides hope to people suffering from migraine. Hope that they can eat delicious food that won't trigger their symptoms. Hope that they can cook meals the whole family will enjoy. Hope that they can live a normal life.
Learn from someone who has been there. Alicia's migraine journey was full of pitfalls, including doctors who dismissed her symptoms and the loss of her career. A migraine-friendly diet wasn't an immediate 'cure' for her, but she persevered and discovered how to test her triggers. This book is based on her trial and error experience, and validated by a registered dietician.
In addition to her mouth-watering photos, Alicia explains how to transition to a migraine diet, foods to avoid and embrace, as well as fancy beverage recipes so you don't feel like you're missing out. With plenty of variety and options for special diets - such as gluten-free and vegan - you're sure to be bookmarking your favorites! Many thanks to Alicia for being an 'Ambassador' for vestibular migraine. By raising awareness and normalizing these invisible conditions we can create a demand for migraine-friendly food, making shopping and eating out easier and more enjoyable."

"The Dizzy Cook is a great resource for migraine patients. Avoiding migraine food triggers can often cause culinary boredom for many migraine sufferers and their families. This cookbook helps migraine sufferers prepare delicious, interesting dishes while avoiding these triggers. It also provides ideas on substituting typically-used but potentially migraine-aggravating ingredients in well-loved dishes. While there are some migraine recipe books on the market, this is the first one specifically written for vestibular migraine sufferers."--Shin Beh, MD, Neurology, University of Texas Southwestern
"Alicia has been an excellent resource for me and my patients. Her personal experience and carefully researched articles have helped many of my patients understand how to treat their vestibular migraine symptoms. I highly recommend her website and this book!"--Edward I. Cho, M.D., House Clinic
"Alicia was able to give a new mood, technique and voice to previously bland and boring elimination diet dinner tables. The menu and options that exist in the 'migraine world' have been changed for the better. This cookbook has navigated the 'do not eat' list existing in this space with ease and exploration. The recipes are self-contained packets of information that are tidy and aesthetically beautiful... not to mention, tasty and delicious! As a migraine sufferer myself, and for the countless patients in our clinic who use these recipes day in and day out, we can't get enough of this edition and can't wait for another!"--Brooke Pearce, Au.D., Co-Founder of Dizzy and Vertigo Institute of Los Angeles
