Premier Integrative Wellness Center for Lyme Disease & Mold Toxicity

The  Sponaugle Wellness Institute is a premier, world-class medical facility in Oldsmar, FL, providing advanced, research-based alternative and conventional medical treatments to patients needing to recover from the most complex cases of chronic illness worldwide.

At Sponaugle Wellness, we practice integrative medicine combining the best of Western medicine and natural medicine. The foundation of our Lyme disease treatment is to enhance mitochondrial function, which increases the killing power of the immune system's natural killer cells and antibodies. This is accomplished by reversing toxin-induced mitochondrial dysfunction.

Our typical patient has undergone treatment from multiple doctors and wellness centers, yet they have failed to regain their health. These complicated patients normally suffer from multiple undiagnosed medical disorders. Therefore, they require a more comprehensive diagnostic workup and a more intensive treatment than is available through routine “wellness” medicine.

Our Medical Director, Rick Sponaugle, MD is an integrative physician who attempts to prioritize treatment through quality forensic medicine. Performing an analysis of 400 numerical bio-markers in his initial consultation, Dr. Sponaugle's goal is to diagnose and treat the underlying cause of your multiple symptoms.

To more effectively treat patients with Lyme disease, Dr. Sponaugle uses experience acquired from working 20 years in critical care medicine and brain expertise derived from treating thousands of patients with brain and neurological disorders.

Dr. “Rick” Sponaugle has been recognized throughout the world as a leader in the integration of modern brain science into his addiction treatment model. He has been featured in the national media spotlight on such shows as the Dr. Phil show, Suzanne Somers show, Ricki Lake show, CNN, Anderson Cooper, FOX News, ABC News, CBS News, and NBC News, and PBS.

The average patient who walks into Sponaugle Wellness has seen 20 or more physicians, most of whom were not Lyme Literate or misdiagnosed the patient with one of the countless diagnoses mistaken for neurological toxicities from lipophilic toxins such as trichothecene or infections such as Lyme Disease or Epstein-Barr Virus.

Patient Success Stories

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.

We succeed where others have failed. At Sponaugle Wellness Institute, bedridden patients or wheelchairs for years have hope that they can walk again.

We cannot guarantee any treatment outcome or that every patient we treat will come out of their wheelchair. However, 35 chronic Lyme disease patients have left their wheelchairs at Sponaugle Wellness Institute.
