Welcome To Sponaugle Wellness

At Sponaugle Wellness Institute, we combine the best of Western Medicine and Natural Medicine to assist the healing of patients with chronic illness. Our patients have normally seen over 40 doctors and have undergone treatment at multiple wellness centers, yet, they failed to regain their health. These complicated patients suffer from multiple undiagnosed medical disorders. They require a more comprehensive diagnostic workup and more intensive treatment than is available through routine “wellness” medicine.


Our Founder, Marvin “Rick” Sponaugle is an Integrative Physician who attempts a more precise diagnosis through quality forensic medicine. The analysis and correlation of approximately 500 numerical biomarkers enable Dr. Sponaugle to better determine the true causation of sickness and to better prioritize individual treatment. Believing in functional medicine, Dr. Sponaugle approaches healing on an intracellular level using biochemistry and detoxification protocols to optimize mitochondrial function.


With an emphasis on Environmental Medicine, Dr. Sponaugle specializes in treating Brain and Neurological disorders derived from severe Neurotoxicity. Most patients require simultaneous treatment for multiple issues including Mold Toxicity, Industrial Toxicity, Gut Toxicity, Neurological Lyme disease and five additional stealth infections that are attacking the Brain and Neurological system.
