My son spent 3 months and this clinic for lyme and its co-infections. This doctor is rude and intolerant of questions. The worst part is that my son's symptoms not only didn't improve but worsened with the infusions , which is the only treatment. My son now has tremors and his mental functioning has worsened, with obsessive compulsive behavior , not present prior to this clinic visit.. You can see Dr. Sponaugle 1x per month Wait time to see him is about 3 hour
with Dr. Sponaugle never sitting down but always anxious to leave.
Avoid this clinic, which will take your money without caring and without results
My experience at Sponaugle Wellness Institute has been amazing.
I have been going to doctors for almost a decade now, and before I came to Sponaugle not one of them was successful in even giving me a diagnosis, not even the Mayo Clinic.
Before my start date I had several lengthy conversations with Pastor Philip who went above and beyond to answer all my questions and thoroughly explain their process.
When I started treatment I instantly knew I was in the right place for me and my health. The staff is AMAZING!! So kind, so compassionate, and they just go above and beyond for you each and every day and Doctor Sponaugle, such a brilliant and compassionate man himself. He take so much time with each patient, my first appointment with him was 2:30 hours, you won’t get that with your regular doctor! His dedication goes well beyond office hours as he holds seminars so we can educate ourselves about what is really going on in our bodies.
About 3 months into treatment Dr Sponaugle was able to give me specific diagnosis's, its hard to put into words what that means to a person who has been searching for answers for almost 10 years now. It gives you hope, lets you see light at the end of the tunnel. 7 months in I have noticed that on a steady, daily basis I have more energy. For the last 6 years I very rarely left my bed past 4:00 pm and these days I am up and out and about, sometimes till 11 at night!! Such a drastic improvement. I am sleeping better and have very little if any anxiety anymore. I am not done yet, I still have a great deal of healing to do but I know that Dr Sponaugle will get me there. I can confidently say that if I was giving the choice to go anywhere in the world for treatment there isn’t a question about it I would be right where I am at the Sponaugle Clinic. He is the only doctor I have ever really trusted and I know as long as I have him on my side I will make a full recovery.
At the age of 15 I was diagnosed with ADHD. I also had migraines and a hard time to focus.
Along the years, I started suffering from insomnia, lack of emotions, panic attacks, depression and suicidal thoughts.
Facing fear on a daily basis, I showed her strength when I decided to seek help. I knew something was wrong and I contacted Sponaugle Wellness Institute.
I thought I that I if I did come here they could help me. Like, there was a light at the end of the tunnel. They change lives. Doctor Sponaugle I think for sure, saved my life.
A couple years ago my son was having some behavioral issues. We noticed a decline in a lot of things in behavior, in ager, in explosiveness. Our family doctor just thought it was ADHD and we were trying to treat with different medications. It was just very hard for him to focus and to sit still in school and that kind of thing.
We also noticed at the same time a decline on his growth, he just stopped growing, so we went to an endocrinologist office that showed us that his pituitary gland was 100% malfunctioning as far as his growth hormone but nobody could explained why that was happening.
That's when we decided to see Dr Sponaugle. Since we’ve been here, it’s just being amazing because we found out at our first meeting somethings that explained the behavior things right away. He had an extremely high level of Benzene, which was even an alert level for an adult, which can make you agitated and angry for no reason.
Other than that, he had other toxins in his blood: ammonia and his was filled with toxins, with bug toxins. He’s gotten Lyme, bartonella, the mosquito, Protomyxzoa Rheumatica, that’s it. My son was one sick boy when came here. So it really surprised us how many things were going on.
As we go back home, through this time, seeing his grown... He’s grown two inches since we’ve been here. Incredible!!
And his pituitary has opened up and it’s now allowing him to produce, up over two hundred points. It’s been wonderful seeing that happened. And another just huge thing, we were on Vyvanse before we got here, we’ve been out of Vyvanse for nine weeks. We’re just celebrating that.
We want to thank Doctor Sponaugle from the bottom of our hearts!! God Bless Dr Sponaugle and his team at Sponaugle Wellness Institute.
I was feeling ill since I was fourteen years old. It's was almost ten years suffering with this invisible illness that not only took my health, my hope, it took a lot of friends away that couldn't understand or see how sick I was.
For them, it was hard to accept that I was bedridden for so long with something that no doctors in Montana could figure it out.
Losing words, having brain fog, the word searching and losing parts of myself were the hard thing to go over. When I started having seizures, I was really shaky, losing my legs sometimes. And then I just couldn’t be able to think. That was the absolutely scariest part of this whole thing for me.
I need to be honest and said that my treatment at Doctor Sponaugle took longer than most of the patients I've encountered at the SWI. I took almost double the time, but again, I was in a really bad shape. I guess nobody is the same, and in my case, I was almost losing hope.
It took me 30 weeks of treatment to complete recover from Lyme and all the toxins in my body.
What I want to share with other people that are suffering just like me is that it was an absolute blessing to have found Dr Sponaugle. I was incredibly lucky to find them in time. And had the opportunity to get treatment at Sponaugle Wellness. What I would like to ask for you is to be patient, because it works.
I wouldn’t be here today if I hadn’t come here! For this reason, I highly recommend Doctor Sponaugle and his amazing staff.
My daughter was a patient at the Sponaugle Wellness Center where she was being treated by Dr. Sponaugle for Lyme Disease and several co-infections.
We are from Ontario, Canada and we chose Dr. Sponaugle because of his reputation for taking on the treatment of the most dreaded bacterial infection of our time with proven results.
Doctor Rick Sponaugle and Sponaugle Wellness staff have put the caring back into Health Care for me and my daughter. Thank you so much for all your dedication.
My treatment and my child's treatment at Sponaugle Wellness was truly a medical miracle. It’s even hard for me to remember how sick we were. I looked so tired I couldn’t even keep my eyes open.
We found Dr Sponaugle via YouTube video testimonials. We saw real people telling real stories with suffering and all the miraculous turn around.
We were so moved to come. If anyone had felt like the doctors don’t understand or their own family in my case felt that it was just how my child is.
I just knew my baby deserved better than a life of just feeling sick all the time.
I am just so impress with how Doctor Sponaugle does his lectures. He will stay for hours and hours answering questions.
The staff here really cares about us and the people we sit next to when we're getting the treatment. That is really amazing thing. They have the same story.
Sponaugle Wellness is where everybody is so sick but all the patients are laughing and sharing because it feels like a second home a safe place here. Full of hope.
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!
