Patient Testimonials

Partners in Health: I am very confident in the breadth and depth of knowledge of Dr. Allison Becker.  In fact, she knows more about health than any traditional physician I have ever seen.  She studies and applies the art of healing.  I believe naturopathic medicine has something to offer everyone.  Particularly those like me who are confounded and disillusioned by allopathic medicine's treatment options for my conditions.  Dr. Becker takes the time to listen to what I have to say and she asks good questions.  She always makes certain that I understand her.  I feel like we are partners in maintaining my health.  -Patti in Evansville, Wisconsin

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Coordinated Care with Multiple Providers: I have the good fortune of seeing Dr. Allison Becker for nearly 6 years.  During this time, my medical care has been coordinated between an ND, an internist (MD), and an MD specializing in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).  I see Dr. Allison for regular care, the internist for more conventional medical needs that are covered through health insurance, and the specialist once a year (for which I must travel out of state).  Dr. Allison helps me manage all aspects of my symptoms, taking note of changes both minor and major, researching, advising or prescribing changes in supplements, diet, and life.   There have been many times a given treatment protocol by the CFS specialist required some further interpretation, assistance, or ongoing monitoring that just was not feasible with a specialist who is booked a year in advance.  I have also appreciated the insight from Dr. Allison who has a different (and often more detailed) perspective, alternative approaches, and more time with me than an MD has, while still being evidence-based.  -Kris in Whitewater, Wisconsin

Headaches, back pain: My headaches and back pain improved almost immediately. During my first visit you were patient and understanding and gave me hope that I could feel better. You told me about acupuncture and suggested several supplements. You explained each one of them so I was comfortable taking them. Over these past 12 months you were always wonderfully supportive of how I was feeling and talked to me about some changes I would make. During the past year, I've followed your recommendations and I'm so glad I did! Today, I feel much better physically and I like being in control of my own health and my life. Thank you so very much for all your time and patience. Mostly, thank you for caring for and about me. You've helped me become a person I feel good about and I am so very grateful! -Carolyn in Janesville, Wisconsin

PMS, acne, infertility: came to Dr. Allison to address my PMS, acne and infertility.  As a result of her care, my skin is clearer, I have more energy and my PMS is less and my menstrual cycles are normalizing.  It's been a huge change from conventional medical care.  She's more in tune with me as a whole and treats the root of the issues, not just the symptoms. -Cathy in Evansville, Wisconsin

Chronic arm and leg pain: As a result of Dr. Allison's care, I am much better.  I have no morning stiffness, decreased arm and leg pain and no diarrhea and stomach issues. Going forward, I know what I need to do to take care of myself.  The best thing I ever did was find her name on the internet! -Nancy in Whitewater, Wisconsin

Hiatal hernia, reflux: My initial appointment with Dr Becker was for a hiatal hernia, reflux and Barrett's Esophagus.  My hiatal hernia gave me much discomfort with breathing and eating.  My left shoulder hurt even with just drinking water.  Dr. Allison taught me special exercises for my hiatal hernia, correct breathing and timely meals. She also used herbal medicine to help me heal.  Now, I am much better. I breath deeper. I have no pain in my back or shoulder. I am able to swallow without food getting stuck and I no longer have a sour taste in my mouth. As a result, I have grown more mindful of my body and aware of what's going on.  Dr. Becker has helped me to learn about my body.  She is a great listener and a teacher.  It's wonderful to work with her on my health. -Beverly in Williams Bay, Wisconsin

Root-cause approach: I was bounced around from doctor to doctor.  They weren't able to figure out what was going on with me, what was causing me to be sick.  Working with Dr. Allison, I am now able to do every day activities again.  I am able to work after 14 months of being disabled due to my illness.  Dr. Allison never made me feel like I wasn't telling the truth.  She believed all of my symptoms and worked to find an answer.  With the other doctors, I didn't fit their textbook and they kept saying "that can't be".  I know what I'm experiencing and Dr. Allison found an answer.  -Kristel in Evansville, Wisconsin

Asthma: I was physically and mentally exhausted.  Asthma had taken over my life.  I was frustrated because I was only being offered drugs that had harmful side effects.  I wasn't getting more than 2-3 hours of sleep per night because I couldn't breathe well.  Now, with Dr. Allison's help, my life is back.  I now know my asthmatic triggers and how to manage them.  I feel safe taking what Dr Allison recommends because they are much safer. I am active, vibrant and happy.  The first night after leaving Dr Allison's office I slept a full night!  Dr Allison shares many concepts that just make sense about the human body and how it works.  I will try her for all my and my family's health care needs before I go anywhere else.  -Shane and Wendy in Edgerton, Wisconsin

Numbness, acupuncture: Most sincerely- It's difficult to express how much I appreciate your knowledge, insight and patience in treating me.  I came to you initially because of a concern with numbness and couldn't have anticipated I would find so much more.  Acupuncture has been a remarkable personal experience for me and the nutritional counseling I've received from you makes me hopeful for better health.- Deb in Janesville, Wisconsin

Knee pain, acupuncture: For years after I had both my knees replaced, I had terrible swelling and pain.  I was depressed and needing narcotics for daily activities and sleep.  With Dr. Allison's acupuncture, I have had minimal swelling, greatly reduced pain, I'm nearly off all my pain meds and I'm not the least depressed.  Her care changed me from a hermit in my house to a happy, busy person and this is no exaggeration!- Janis in Janesville, Wisconsin

Fibromyalgia: When I came to Dr Allison's clinic, I had extreme fatigue, chronic pain, fibromyalgia and insomnia.  Today, I have enough energy to spend time with my children and grandchildren and not feel exhausted when they leave! I have very little pain and I'm sleeping better too. Dr. Allison gave me my life back! -Dawn in Potosi, Wisconsin

Overweight, PMS: Before I came to Dr Allison Becker, my health was poor. I was overweight, tired all the time, moody and had severe cramping with my menstrual cycle... My health has drastically improved. I have lost 87 pounds, my energy is coming back, my mood swings are barely noticeable. I'm a much happier and healthier person.Dr. Allison found health issues that the doctors in my area refused to check me for. I'm very excited about my results and the treatment I have received.When someone says that alternative treatment are not the way to go I tell them to look at me ask my husband how naturopathic medicine has changed my life and made it better for both me and my family. I'm living proof that natural medicine works.  -Sherry in Newton, Wisconsin

Overweight, High cholesterol, High blood pressure: When I first saw Dr. Becker, I was quite overweight, had high cholesterol and high blood pressure. I was sleeping poorly, felt tired and generally lousy. After a number of months, I am so pleased to say that my blood pressure is into the normal range, my restless legs are quieter now and I am able to sleep. I am so happy to know that I can improve my own health through diet, exercise and without medications that have a long list of side effects. I feel empowered!  -Jenifer in Monroe, Wisconsin

Diabetes, fibromyalgia: I have had poor health for years including Type 2 Diabetes, fibromyalgia, heart disease, and chronic constipation and diarrhea, fatigue and general malaise. A combination of acupuncture from Dr. Becker and massage addressed my fibro pain very adequately. Finally-relief! We have also worked with my digestive system. I feel more complete- emotional, spiritual and physical concerns are still not always in sync but I have learned how to take better care of myself and where to go if help is needed again. I was impacted by the level of serenity and calm I experienced as a naturopathic patient, both in the clinic and with my naturopathic doctor. I felt personally valued by the entire staff and knew my concerns would always be addressed.  -Karne in Edgerton, Wisconsin
