My family and I found Dr. Sponaugle about a year ago when we were researching chronic fatigue.
My wife and I have been struggling with everyday life duties and just have the lack of energy to be able to accomplish things and we knew something wasn't right.
When we first arrive at Sponaugle Wellness Institute, we didn't know what to expect.
All we saw was several other patients there and Dr. Sponaugle gave us an educational seminar about how our brain works/reacts especially when it comes to mold toxicity.
When Dr. Sponaugle sat down with us, he just looked at us with a smile and said, "I know what you have been going through, you are suffering from mold toxicity." Mold Toxicity?!?
There was no way, we have a clean house and it cannot be the reason why we have been struggling all this time, with fatigue.
Test results confirms mold toxicity and when we went back home, sure enough, we found mold in two places: behind the tiles in the shower and in the attic.
We had never known about this and this was very scary moment for us, especially with two little kids living with us. With the mold being removed and following Dr. Sponaugle Treatment, I cant even begin to explain the positive changes in our lives.
In fact, my wife and I went Kayaking. We have been craving to do outdoor things with our kids and truly living our lives to the fullest.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Dr. Sponaugle and Sponaugle Wellness Institute for giving our lives back. God bless you.
Dr Sponaugle is a very knowledgeable and a very compassionate Lyme doctor.
After seeing more than thirty different doctors from all the most different specialties you can imagine and treating Lyme for the last 8 years, I found the answer to my chronic Lyme disease .
I had already been diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis and suffered from severe brain fog, chronic fatigue, burning pain in my legs and feet before Dr Sponaugle helped me to feel like myself again.
Treating Neuro Lyme and MS is no quick fix, I spent 5 months at the clinic. Just like most people, in the beginning, I was getting frustrated of the length of the treatment, but I came to my senses when realizing that I have suffered with this disease for most of my life and I was finally seeing results. It took time, but the recovery came for good.
No one else could help me, I tried multiple clinics and LLMDS before. and after suffering more than 12 years, I have my health again.
My brain was so bad before Dr Sponaugle's treatment. The burning pain in my legs ifs gone, my balance is back and beyond his neurological expertise, his integrative medicine approach has made me Feel and look 10 years younger
My husband is also very thankful to Dr Sponaugle. We will forever be grateful to Dr and his wonderful nurses.
I have been coming to Dr. Sponaugle's for the last three years.
My first program lasted 3 weeks and it was an amazing experience.
I have no idea of how Lyme disease was affecting my body and my mind!
I never thought about relating my other symptoms with Lyme disease.
My second natural Lyme treatment protocol stay to finish the job lasted about 12 weeks. That was a more intense experience. It's just like my daughter told me, you need to get it out of your system to start getting better.
And she was right, the "getting the toxins out" of my system was a very intense period, but I could always count with Sponaugle Wellness team and with Doctor Sponaugle as well.
I couldn't believe that such an amazing and busy doctor would actually sit down with me and walk me through the whole process during the whole treatment.
Doctor Sponaugle's bed side manners were very helpful during my recovery time. I felt like he really cared about me.
I now come back two times a year to just do some detox drips. I have seen his office and science grow.
Doctor Sponaugle's knowledge saved my life! He has taught me so much, and with that knowledge I am changing my family, my friends, and co-workers one by one.
Thank you Dr. Sponaugle and his amazing medical staff members!
God truly sent me to you Dr Sponaugle.
You put the puzzle together, you never stopped teaching me, or giving up on me when would grow tired and frustrated!
I have been home for almost a year now and everyday gets better as I live my life after Lyme disease.
I wish people would understand that it takes time to heal. After living with Lyme disease for so many years, I knew better that I would not be 100% a couple of weeks after treatment.
People sometimes need to setup proper expectations, specially when dealing with such invasive disease. Honestly, my gut was completely destroyed and my immune system was completely shut down from all the toxins.
Just to break that it took longer than the expected. But after almost a year being back home and getting my life back I can definitely said that it was all worth it and I wouldn't be here today if I haven't found Dr Sponaugle.
Been in the clinic for several months. No progress only $4-5,000 going out the door. Doctor is erratic. Keeps patients waiting 3-5 hours for appointments
I couldn't be happier with my Lyme treatment with Doctor Sponaugle.
Truth to be told the whole team at Sponaugle Wellness were always ready to help me.
Without getting into private details I didn't think I have much time left... until I found Dr Rick Sponaugle.
I went to Sponaugle Wellness seminar and left there knowing that I have finally found the help I needed!
My daughter had Lyme disease for about five and a half years. She was infected, we know for sure with 14 at least ticks at camp in Missouri.
She had weird flue like symptoms and we couldn't place what was going on. And I sent her back to the same camp. Where she got another 13 tick bites the next year.
We are lucky that we do know that she had actual tick bites. But, it became very severe and finally after a year and three months after the first infection we figured it out. We sent her to a doctor to get her properly tested. She came back very CDC positive which is very hard to get. It is unusual to get such a positive.
A few months later Bartonella showed up. Another few months after that bacillus showed up. We've been through years of antibiotic therapy. Ups and downs and ups and downs. We tried many, many other modalities and IV's and just by chance finally happened to find Dr. Sponaugle's wellness Center in Florida.
We've only been here for four weeks and when I brought her here she hadn't been able to get out of the house for five or six months she was bed ridden. She was almost catatonic. She could not even take care of herself. She was in a wheelchair to take her anywhere. She could barely even stay awake the first day we were here.
Over the few weeks all of a sudden with all of the IV's within a few days this is now my daughter. She still has a little ways to go because we still need to do more. But she is talking, she is walking, she went to the mall! She is back. And I can't tell you enough how this has turned her life around and mine.
And thanks to Doctor Sponaule and the whole medical team at Sponaugle Wellness Institute I can finally say she is on the road to recovery!
I would like to share my story as to how I ended up at Sponaugle Wellness Institute. My family history is full of mental health issues and addiction. Through most people’s eyes I look like I have had a happy healthy life. This is the farthest thing from the truth. As a child I can vividly remember waking up every morning full of anxiety.
I was paralyzed with fear all the time. I couldn't believe that at such a young age I was so sick. As I mentioned I had severe anxiety and depression. I was also always fighting chronic sinus infections and was treated with tons of antibiotics. I would get better for a week or so then be sick again. This is where the cycle of antibiotics would continue.
At age seven my mother was desperate for help to figure out why I continued to tell her every day there was something wrong with my body and brain. That is when our family Psychiatrist put me on Prozac.
From then on I saw over fifteen different Psychiatrists and multiple specialists who seemed to want to help me. I became more depressed and anxious to the point of not wanting to leave my own house. As you can imagine I was extremely frustrated and lost faith in everyone and everything.
My mother, who had been searching for years to help find, helped me find the right help. She found Dr. Sponaugle’s wellness clinic. After a tour it was finally clear to my mother that his research and treatment would address not just the outer layer but look at the underlying chemical imbalances of the brain that caused my mental health issues and addictions.
It was long five years of research and a few other cards that fate played in our families life that allowed me to be a grateful patient of Dr. Sponaugle and his team at SponaugleWellness Institute.
Seriously, I thought I had the onset of Parkinson's disease. I couldn’t focus, my muscles were so stiffed and my hands couldn’t stop shaking. I had been dealing with an unknown illness on and off for the past few years. In the winter, my symptoms had returned in full force and I was desperate to find an answer. I always lived in an older home and never occurred to me that all my symptoms could be related to black mold.
After researching online for Parkinson's symptoms like I found out that mold toxicities can have similar symptoms in your body. Looking for treatments and people that had similar symptoms, I found Sponaugle Wellness website explaining about mold toxicity. They have several patient testimonials on YouTube and the video about Amy called my attention because it was exactly what I was feeling. Amy was exposed to mold toxins while volunteering to clean an abandoned dorm for the Red Cross volunteers after hurricane Katrina.
From that moment I knew I needed to call Dr Sponaugle. Within a very short period from when I started my treatment, everything began to return to normal. With all I have gone through relating to my mold problems, I think that not having someone to help and understand what I was going through was the worst. I was feeling even sicker because all the several doctors I’ve seen where only trying to treat the pain, I spent thousands of dollars with “doctors” that didn’t even look at me when I went to see them.
Dr Sponaugle was very kind and literally walked me through the whole process. Dr Sponaugle really loves what he does and you can feel that while he talks to you. He really cares for your health. He spent the weekend studying my case, he came back on Monday with more answers than all the other doctors I received treatment ever did. And he explained in a way that made sense. I was so grateful I finally found professional help that actually knows and cares about that they do.
I am feeling so much better these days. I know I still have a ways to go to feel 100% again but I now feel that this goal is reachable. For anyone that is suffering from this illness, please do not give up. I know that it may feel like you will never get better. I hope that by telling my story it will help others who are going through this ordeal to know that there is hope out there. I am sending prayers for your speedy recovery. God Bless Dr Sponaugle and his staff!
