Successful Lyme Treatment – Carol

Carol’s Story:


                               Lyme Spirochete (Cystic Stage)


                                       Severe Bartonella

Severe Bartonella Infection

Carol came to Sponaugle Wellness Institute with severe chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and anxiety derived from a combination of mold toxicity, Lyme Disease and other infectious agents. She had been previously diagnosed with Lyme Disease and had already undergone 6 years of Lyme treatment before coming to Sponaugle Wellness Institute. Carol had been essentially bed ridden during the last three years of her Lyme treatment even though she was treated by top Lyme doctors in New Jersey and New York.

Carol’s previous Lyme treatment consisted of 3 different antibiotics every day for a 6 year period. The extensive antibiotic therapy Carol received over six years, failed to kill Carol’s Lyme infection, it simply worsened her health. Carol suffered more severe chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia with each year of antibiotic therapy.

Carol’s New York Lyme specialists failed to diagnose multiple other infectious agents from which she was suffering; Bartonella, Babesia, Mycoplasma, and the Protomyxzoa Rheumatica parasite that is carried by mosquitos. Some of these can be visualized on her blood smears above. Her Lyme specialists also failed to diagnose her severe environmental toxicity, toxins that had down-regulated her immune system’s “kill power” to a degree that left her defenseless against tick borne and mosquito borne infections.

After ten weeks of Dr Sponaugle’s comprehensive Lyme treatment, Carol saw a dramatic improvement in her health as can be seen in her before and after pictures. Carol recently saw another physician who validated via microscope that she no longer suffers from the above infections. We are currently working on the severe gut toxicity Carol suffered from her previous Lyme treatment.

Successful Lyme Treatment – Sara

Sara’s Story:

Sara suffered years of severe chronic fatigue which professors at prestigious New York medical centers discounted. She was finally diagnosed with Lyme disease by an LLMD in the North East. She underwent 17 weeks of intravenous Rocephin [5 grams/day] which did not kill her Lyme, the extensive antibiotic therapy only made her much more fatigued and exacerbated Lyme induced anxiety.

When Sara arrived at Sponaugle Wellness Institute, she was rather hopeless regarding herhealth. Once a vibrant tennis player, Sara struggled to get out of bed. Sara, however, soon became friends with Carol (right picture) and other chronic Lyme patients who were already on their road to recovery from Dr Sponaugle’s natural Lyme treatment.

Dr Sponaugle used German testing to confirm Sara’s Lyme diagnosis. Lyme disease was, in Dr Sponaugle’s opinion, the least of Sarah’s problems. Dr Sponaugle further diagnosed Sara with massive mold toxicity, her Trichothecene toxicity was 100 times the government set toxic limit of .18 parts per billion

German research and research from Michigan State University has proven that Trichothecene “shuts down” both the cellular and the humoral components of the immune system. With Trichothecene levels of 18 parts per billion, Sara had no chance of killing Lyme or any other tick borne infection, of which Dr Sponaugle diagnosed two more, Bartonella and Babesia.

You can visualize the tick borne Babesia parasite inside of the red blood cells on the above blood smear. Babesia, in a similar fashion to the malaria parasite, enlarges the size of the red blood cells, RBCs.

Our RBCs are on average 7 microns in diameter. Our pipes at the end of the circulatory pipeline, the capillaries in the micro-circulation, are only 8 microns in diameter. When the RBCs become enlarged from Babesiosis, they “get stuck” in the capillaries, thus, blocking blood flow in the micro-circulation. This is problematic for the entire body, but particularly for the brain, the heart and the lungs.

Babesia-induced blockage of lung capillaries causes severe shortness of breath, a hallmark of Babesiosis. Blood flow in the lungs is critically reduced when RBCs cannot travel past the lung alveoli [air sacs] to become oxygenated. This causes what we call in the ICU, a reverse shunt; Dr Sponaugle spent years training as an Intensive Care Specialist and now realizes many critical patients suffered tick borne infections of which he was taught nothing about.

Babesia-induced blockage of brain capillaries causes micro-hypoxia [lack of oxygen] in the brain. When lactic acid builds up in the brain, patients suffer tremendous headaches. Many headaches that are actually derived from a Babesia infection are commonly diagnosed by headache clinics at prestigious medical centers with waste basket terminology; cluster headaches or migraine syndrome.

Sara is a real trooper and a delight to work with, her before and after pictures demonstrate how much healthier she has become with our comprehensive Lyme treatment.

Teal

Teal’s Story:

Teal is a 17 year old from Colorado who came to Florida Detox and Wellness Institute in a wheel chair November, 2011. Teal was so fatigued, she could not stay awake. Teal suffered from such severe chronic fatigue, she had not been to a shopping mall for more than 3 years, quite unusual for a teenage girl. Teal had a history of suffering from Lyme disease for 5 years since the age of 12 when she was bitten by several ticks at a summer camp. Shortly after, she became bed-ridden from her Lyme disease, she reminded Dr. Sponaugle of the suffering his young Alexa had gone through just a few years prior.

Since age 12, Teal had been receiving Lyme Disease Treatment consisting of antibiotics on a daily basis, including three years of daily, intravenous antibiotics through a port in her chest. After receiving 5 years of failed Lyme treatment from various Colorado doctors, Teal moved to San Francisco and later to Seattle for more Lyme Treatment from renowned Lyme physicians. The various Lyme specialists prescribed different “antibiotic cocktails” none of which were successful in killing Teal’s Lyme infection.

When Teal arrived at Florida Detox and Wellness Institute, she could barely walk and she suffered with narcolepsy. The picture on the left was taken during her first appointment, Teal had to be woken from her daytime somulence to talk with Dr. Sponaugle. Teal set a new record for adrenal failure in Dr. Sponaugle’s clinic, morning Cortisol levels should be around 18, Teal’s AM Cortisol level was 0.3 almost immeasurable!

The picture on the right was taken after just 4 weeks of Dr Sponaugle’s Lyme Treatment.
The eyes are the window to the soul, look into Teal’s eyes, not at her eyes, as you compare her pictures before and after Dr Sponaugle’s Lyme Treatment. The night before her second picture was taken, Teal had gone with her mother to the International Mall in Tampa, her first visit to a shopping mall in 3 ½ years. Teal left her wheel chair in Tampa, a great symbolic event for Teal and her mother.

Jennifer

Jennifer’s Story:

Jennifer was a successful runway model in California until age 23 when she suddenly became “very sickly.” Between ages 23 and 33, Jennifer spent over $1,300,000 at California Universities and California Wellness Centers attempting to get a proper diagnosis and regain her health. In October, 2011, Jennifer and her mother came to Sponaugle Wellness Institute as a last hope to determine what was robbing this young woman of her health.

Upon Jennifer’s arrival, Dr. Sponaugle reviewed her lab data and informed Jennifer that he suspected severe mold toxicity and potentially Lyme disease. Subsequent testing revealed Jennifer was suffering from severe Trichothecene toxicity, Lyme Disease and a severe Bartonella infection.

Dr Sponaugle explained to Jennifer and her mother that the Trichothecene mold toxin down regulates the immune system’s “kill power” such that even young healthy women like Jennifer have no ability to kill tick borne infections like the Lyme Bacterium and the Bartonella bacterium.

At first, Jennifer and her mother were skeptical that a Los Angeles home could have a problem with hidden mold. Subsequently, they have found and remediated the hidden mold that played a pivotal role in Jennifer’s health issues.

The Lyme infection and the Bartonella infection were both causative for Jennifer’s daily headaches which were treated by California pain doctors with opiate pain medication. After 8 weeks of Dr. Sponaugle’s treatment for Lyme disease and Bartonella, Jennifer took her second picture. Had Jennifer’s mold toxicity, Lyme disease and Bartonella infection been properly diagnosed, Jennifer would not have lost her modeling career nor would she have spent $1.3 million on failed medical treatment.

Megan

Megan’s Story:

Megan was a teenage model before she became sick from what doctors in Mississippi thought was just Lyme Disease; she suffered with severe chronic fatigue and anxiety, all typical Lyme symptoms. After years of failed antibiotic treatment for Lyme disease, Megan and her family came to Sponaugle Wellness Institute in July of 2011. Megan’s Lyme doctors had failed to recognize that she suffered from much more than Lyme Disease. Megan was suffering from severe black mold toxicity, her Trichothecene levels measured to be 25 times the government set toxic level of 0.2 parts per billion.

Dr. Sponaugle explained to Megan and her mother that antibiotics would never kill Lyme when Megan’s immune system was essentially shut down from the Trichothecene toxin. Megan underwent Dr. Sponaugle’s proprietary intravenous mold toxicity treatment followed by the Sponaugle intravenous treatment for Lyme Disease. Within weeks, Megan regained her health and she lost 60 pounds of the excess weight she gained when her endocrine system was shut down from Mold Toxicity and Lyme Disease.

Kevin2


Kevin’s Story – Lyme Disease – Bartonella – Mycoplasma – Mold Toxicity – Opiate Addition:

Kevin was a healthy and happy young man until age 15 when he began developing symptoms of anxiety, panic disorder and rage. Kevin’s mother is a pediatric nurse who took Kevin to Johns Hopkins Medical Center where psychiatry professors misdiagnosed Kevin with bipolar disorder.

The Psychiatrists at John’s Hopkins prescribed several psychiatric medications for Kevin’s “bipolar disorder” which made Kevin more depressed and more disconnected from his family. When the bipolar medications failed to “dampen” the excessive electrical activity in Kevin’s brain caused by Lyme and Bartonella infections, Kevin, like many of Dr. Sponaugle’s patients, began using OxyContin to calm his anxious brain.

Kevin’s parents initially thought, as many parents do, that they were bringing Kevin to Florida Detox and Wellness Institute for his OxyContin addiction, they, however, received much more advanced medical treatment. Through a DNA test, Dr. Sponaugle diagnosed Kevin with genetics from which Kevin cannot make antibodies to the toxic gases produced by indoor molds, mold toxins.

Furthermore, Dr. Sponaugle explained to Kevin’s parents that German research had proven the black mold toxin, Trichothecene, found in Kevin, suppresses every aspect of the immune system, and therefore predisposes patients like Kevin to intracellular brain infections – typically Lyme Disease, Bartonella and Mycoplasma.

Second round testing indeed proved that Kevin was suffering from undiagnosed Lyme Disease and, through special blood smears sent to Frye Labs in Arizona, additional testing revealed a severe Bartonella and Mycoplasma infection. Physicians who are knowledgeable regarding Lyme and other tick borne infections know that Bartonella is notorious for causing panic disorder, rage and bipolar symptoms.

Dr. Sponaugle treated Kevin with his natural intravenous Lyme Treatment protocol which also kills Bartonella. After just four weeks of Dr. Sponaugle’s Lyme treatment, Kevin’s blood smear cleared of Bartonella as seen in the before and after slides. Kevin stopped taking the psychiatric medications that were prescribed by psychiatrists at John’s Hopkins Medical Center. He no longer needs OxyContin to calm his anxious brain and he no longer suffers with depression.

Kevin is now a happy young man as seen in his second picture. Kevin and his mother have also done a video testimony in hopes of spreading the word to other families whose children may have been misdiagnosed with psychiatric disorders by psychiatrists who are ill-knowledgeable regarding neuro-lyme symptoms.
