Treating The Cause, Not A Diagnosis
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.
The majority of Sponaugle Wellness patients require simultaneous treatment for multiple medical disorders including Mold poisoning, Industrial Toxicity, Gut Toxicity, Lyme Disease, Bartonella, Babesia, Protozoa infections and intestinal parasites.
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.
Sponaugle Wellness Institute is most well-known for Lyme disease treatment, but there are a number of other chronic conditions that we also treat. Dr. Rick Sponaugle is the country’s leading Lyme disease specialist, but his expertise in brain research has led him to develop an unparalleled detoxification program to help alleviate symptoms related to chronic Lyme disease, mold toxicity, and industrial toxicity.

Alexa Sponaugle, our teenage daughter, contracted Lyme disease when she was 13 years old. Alexa was a horse lover and spent most of her evenings working with horses. Ironically, a recent study in New Jersey tested 90 horses dispersed throughout the state and found 80 of the 90 had Lyme disease, something to think about. After two years of LLMD Lyme treatment, Alexa almost died from a mega-dose antibiotic therapy consisting of six different antibiotics every day.
Alexa’s personality changed dramatically, our once cheerful Alexa developed an obsessive “worry” type of anxiety followed by intermittent panic attacks. Alexa developed social anxiety, yet before treatment, she was a social butterfly. She fell into a depression she described as a “black hole.” Her chronic fatigue worsened every month and she could no longer participate in family sports, this was particularly unsettling because Alexa was arguably the best athlete in our family.
