INTERVIEWS WITH VIOLET AND CAROLINE

Featured Article Quotes – Read Full Article
“Environmental medicine has emerged as a new medical specialty because, at last count, American industry has manufactured more than eighty-one thousand synthetic chemicals since 1930. We are exposed to these toxic chemicals on a daily basis.”
“What is problematic is that these industrial toxins—benzene, toluene, pesticides, food additives and xenoestrogens like BPA, PCB, and phthalates, to name a just a few—being lipophilic or fatty in nature, freely move through the fatty membranes of the body’s cells migrating to and depositing in the fattiest body tissue. Because our brain is the fattiest organ in the body, consisting of some 60 percent fat, every decade an ever-increasing number of Americans are suffering from neurotoxicity—the excessive accumulation of environmental toxins in the brain.” [button text=”Read full Article” link=”https://sponauglewellness.com/mold-toxins-and-chemicals-article/” style=”primary” size=”normal” target=”_self” display=”inline” icon=”no”]

Press and Publications About Addiction*
“Addiction is not a primary disease, but rather a symptom, or a coping mechanism that patients use to bring their imbalanced brain back into balance. Dr. Sponaugle began correlating drug craving patterns with various brain chemistry patterns and changes seen on his patient’s brain scans. His Brain scan research proved that addicted patients use drugs and medications to stimulate underactive brain regions and to calm overactive brain regions. By the year 2000, Dr. Sponaugle and Sponaugle Wellness® were leading the world in addiction research. Unknowingly, patients strive to balance their brain chemistry which subsequently balances their brain’s electrical function.”
