Pain and Brain Chemistry with Lyme Disease

Dr Rick Sponaugle uses brain scans to teach Lyme patient Eric of Pennsylvania the brain science of Lyme disease. Dr Sponaugle explains how he always optimizes brain function first when treating Lyme patients and why optimizing brain function reduced Eric’s total body pain by 80 percent in his first week of treatment at Sponaugle Wellness Institute.

Dr. Sponaugle has successfully helped many people to recover from Lyme. His approach is to treat the brain first. Very instructive video.

BEYOND THE HEADLINES

Lyme Disease
Hosted by ABC7’s Cheryl Jennings

Each Beyond the Headlines show focuses on a different topic affecting the people who make up the fabric of the Bay Area. What do you know about the disease that you could get from a tick bite? It’s called Lyme Disease.

At first, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control only reported about 30,000 cases a year. But, new studies reveal the numbers could be far higher… as many as 300,000 a year. Now, the CDC estimates that number could be as high as a million cases a year!
