At Sponaugle Wellness Institute, we believe truly “holistic” wellness treatment should not only heal the body, it should also heal the brain!! The brain is our most complex organ. Optimizing brain function in sick patients requires extraordinary knowledge of brain physiology, modern brain science and the expertise derived from treating thousands of patients with brain disorders.
Our Medical Director, Rick Sponaugle M.D., is an integrative medicine physician who has treated 9,000 patients with various brain and neurological disorders. Dr. Sponaugle has performed sophisticated brain research correlating over 10,000 Brain Chemistry analyses with neurotoxin levels and their associated changes on SPECT and PET brain imaging. Many of these patients suffered from undiagnosed Lyme disease, Bartonellosis, Mold Toxicity and environmental toxicity. Dr. Sponaugle’s treatment protocols have enabled eight Lyme patients to come out of their wheel chairs this year. Below are a few patients who chose to share their story.
Dr. Sponaugle continuously improves his treatment protocols for Lyme disease and, for healing the brain and nervous system. He has reversed the symptoms of ADHD, Anxiety, OCD, Alzheimer’s, Brain Fog, Brain Trauma, Dementia, Depression, Memory Loss, Neuropathy and Multiple Sclerosis in thousands of grateful patients.

Alexa Sponaugle, our teenage daughter, contracted Lyme disease when she was 13 years old. Alexa was a horse lover and spent most of her evenings working with horses. Ironically, a recent study in New Jersey tested 90 horses dispersed throughout the state and found 80 of the 90 had Lyme disease, something to think about. After two years of LLMD Lyme treatment, Alexa almost died from a mega-dose antibiotic therapy consisting of six different antibiotics every day.
Her Lyme literate doctors were bright and compassionate physicians, however, like most LLMDs, Lyme Literate Medical Doctors, they were hyper-focused on juggling various antibiotic regimens with disregard for the ultimate destruction they were causing to Alexa’s body and brain. In addition, Alexa suffered from antibiotic-induced down-regulation of her immune function, I explain the multiple mechanisms by which this occurs on our Lyme page.
On many of those dark days, Alexa could not navigate from her bedroom to our kitchen. Mothers will always rise to the occasion and save the day when it comes to their children. Through the intensive homeopathic research my wife, Kim, performed, research that as an ICU specialist trained in western medicine, I initially didn’t respect or believe, we designed a 90 percent natural Lyme treatment that ultimately saved our daughter’s life. Today Alexa is a healthy freshman in college.
