Mold Toxicity Treatment
In 2012, Dr. Sponaugle gave interviews for two very informative books, Suzanne Somers’ book “Bombshell” and Brenda Watson’s book “Heart of Perfect Health.”
“In both books, I described in great detail the mechanisms by which environmental toxins – particularly mold mycotoxins – cause multiple medical disorders,” Dr. Sponaugle said.
Validation of Advanced Intravenous Treatment for Mold Sickness
Chris from New Jersey
- At 51.97 ppb, Chris’ original Trichothecene level was 260 times greater than what the federal government sets as critical (anything below 0.2 ppb is normal).
- In one day, Sponaugle Wellness Institute’s Advanced Intravenous Treatment for Mold Illness dropped Chris’ Trichothecene level From 51.97 to 1.74!

Research has enabled Sponaugle Wellness Institute to better determine whether the primary cause of an patient’s neurological symptoms is a Brain infection like Lyme disease or mold mycotoxin-induced, down-regulation of electrical activity in the brain regions that correlate with the neurological symptoms.
Sponaugle Wellness Institute now has a Brain Imaging database of 400 PET scans, 150 SPECT scans and 200 MRI studies in patients suffering from a combination of Mold Toxicity and Lyme Disease.
Common neurological symptoms caused by both Mold Toxicity and Lyme Disease include: memory loss, inability to grab words, slurred speech, stuttering, ataxia, loss of balance, dyscoordination, foot drop, limb weakness, resting tremor, intentional tremor and poor hand writing.
Mold Toxicity Causing Brain Cancer and Neurological Disorders
Mold mycotoxins can cause two types of Brain Cancer: Astrocytoma and Glioblastoma. Mycotoxins also cause severe destruction of Brain tissue. Some of the mechanisms of mycotoxin-induced neurological damage can be found further down this page.
When Mold Toxic patients begin experiencing neurological symptoms, they should immediately undergo quality treatment for mold exposure. It is important to prevent progression to neurodegenerative diseases like Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s.
Removing mold mycotoxins from the blood stream is not sufficient treatment: It is imperative to mobilize mold mycotoxins from the Brain to the bloodstream, where they can be effectively removed.
Through the years, Dr. Sponaugle has worked diligently to design and continuously advance intravenous neurological protocols to assist healing of mycotoxin-induced Brain damage and reverse mycotoxin-induced down-regulation of Brain activity.
Dennis – Louisiana
Below are the before and after PET Brain scans of Dennis, a neurological Lyme patient from Louisiana, who recently came to Sponaugle Wellness Institute. Bases on PET computerized calculation, three weeks of our neurological treatment produced tremendous improvement of his brain activity, including:
- 91 percent improvement in his Cerebellum
- 90 percent improvement in his Posterior Cingulate
- 69 percent improvement in his Caudate Nuclei
- 52 percent improvement in global brain activity.
Using colors as a guide: dark blue/black is indicative of good Brain activity, light blue reveals suboptimal Brain activity and yellow reveals a severe reduction of Brain activity.
Through computerized calculation, PET scans provide numbers for more objective evaluation of Brain activity. The PET scan computer calculates the glucose metabolism by brain region. Glucose metabolism correlates with electrical activity.
The first day I met this extremely intelligent business man, he had difficulty grabbing words. In addition, he had a slight stutter that went away after three days of neurotoxicity treatment. His neurotoxicity was derived from Mold Toxins, Industrial Toxins and Lyme toxins.
My preference is to reduce the Brain’s toxin load before I commence kill protocols in neurological Lyme patients. Effective killing of Lyme spirochetes, Bartonella, Protomyxzoa and other infectious organisms releases lipopolysaccharide toxins from their cell walls. Killing before reducing the Brain’s toxicity will temporarily make the Brain even more toxic.
Furthermore, clearing the toxic effect on the brain scan “clears the picture;” making it easier to evaluate the Brain regions that are underactive from infection.
Nine years ago, Amy was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. She credits the onset of her illness to her time spent assisting with humanitarian efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
According to Amy, she was exposed to quite a lot of black mold at that time. In the space of a month, she had begun to experience profound neurological interferences in her ability to walk. Eventually, Parkinsonian rigidity and episodic paralysis would find her bedridden and in desperate need of help.
After being unable to progress on traditional Parkinson’s medications, and with other integrative approaches, Amy tried Sponaugle Wellness Institute. Dr. Sponaugle’s management of her excito-neurotoxicity allowed her to turn a corner, and placed her on the path to progression that she was not finding elsewhere.
Mold Toxicity Causing Brain Disorders
Mold mycotoxins destroy the myelin sheath through lipid peroxidation and oxidative stress.
Mold toxins are lipophilic; fatty in molecular structure and fat soluble. The cell membrane of every cell in our body consists of a lipophilic structure. Therefore, these lipophilic toxins can travel uninhibited throughout the body. These fatty toxins move throughout our bloodstream, easily cross and destroy our blood-brain barrier, and then accumulate in our fattiest tissue; our neurological system thus, the term Neurotoxicity.
Our fattiest organ is our Brain which consists of 60 percent fatty content. The fattiest tissue in our body is actually the myelin sheath on Brain Neurons and peripheral nerves, it consists of 80 percent fatty content, 25 percent of which is cholesterol; another reason cholesterol levels below 180 are detrimental to our Brain and peripheral nervous system!
When lipophilic mold toxins saturate the myelin sheath, they displace healthy fatty acids like DHA and EPA from fatty acid chains, causing fatty acid oxidation and lipid peroxidation. Subsequent inflammation of the myelin sheath causes “burning” neuropathic pain, females in particular get burning pain in their feet and legs.
Inflammation of the myelin sheath disrupts the electromagnetic field surrounding neurons which causes a subsequent reduction of the electrical signal.
The red and white brain regions seen on her mold toxic brain, as compared to blue regions on the healthy brain, demonstrate excessive blood flow which correlates with excessive electrical activity.
The tests above were from a female college student, Susan, who was happy and healthy before going to college. Her personality changed after living six months in a moldy dormitory. She developed panic disorder which progressed to rage, and was subsequently misdiagnosed with Bipolar Disorder.
Our testing revealed Trichothecene levels that were twenty-fold the CLIA critical level. This excessive electrical brain activity was the true cause of her anxiety and Bipolar symptoms. After two weeks of our intravenous protocol for treatment for mold exposure, she no longer suffered symptoms of depression, fatigue, anxiety, panic and rage.
