"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.
