Meet the Founder of Sponaugle Wellness Institute


Rick Sponaugle, MD is an integrative physician who attempts a more precise diagnosis through quality forensic medicine. He performs an analysis and correlation of approximately 400 numerical biomarkers. This extensive evaluation enables Dr. Sponaugle to diagnose the underlying cause of his patient’s illness.
With emphasis on environmental medicine and tick-borne infections, Dr. Sponaugle specializes in treating brain and neurological disorders that are derived from severe neurotoxicity.

The majority of our patients require simultaneous treatment for multiple medical disorders including: Mold Toxicity, Industrial Toxicity, Gut Toxicity, Lyme Disease and several additional tick and mosquito-borne infections. These “stealth” infections commonly attack the brain and neurological system.

Patients with chronic Lyme disease commonly suffer with brain and neurological issues, in addition to multiple organ dysfunction, much like hospitalized critical care patients.

Dr. Sponaugle uses the experience he acquired from working in critical care medicine for 20 years and the expertise – derived from treating thousands of patients with brain and neurological disorders – to treat Lyme disease patients.
