Dr. Sponaugle with his daughter Alexa who he healed of Lyme Disease

Dr. Sponaugle Healed His Daughter Of Chronic Lyme

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.

Click on the link below to read Alexa's full story of healing from Lyme, and how treating Alexa brought Dr. Sponaugle to where he is today with treating complex illness.
