Dizziness and numbness sound neurological.  Does she see one regularly? Milk recommendation is probably for more calcium or Vitamin D which can be gained through supplements if the milk doesn't agree with her.  A disc issue can also cause numbness.  The "giddy" felling could also be due to blood pressure issues or dehydration.  Make sure she is getting plenty of fluids and has her blood pressure checked often (you can buy a home kit or go to most grocery stores or Walgreens/CVS).  Good Luck!

Has she thought about seeing a chiropractor or a wellness healer?

Soy milk does have a lot of vitamins - be sure to check the label to choose the brand that best supplements what she needs.  I know some brands are fortified with extra calcium or Vitamin D which might suit her best.  I hope that helps her!
