Dr. Ayo Bankole ND
Dr. Bankole is a California State licensed Naturopathic Doctor and Physician Assistant.
Dr. Bankole has found that the straightest path to health is a balanced dose of being heard and thoroughly evaluated, some “doctor as teacher” principle, and a portion of personal accountability. His desire to steer people towards a solution to chronic disease by treating the true causes led him to Naturopathic Medicine.
It was at the Sonoran University of Health Sciences where he and his partner, Dr. Sasha Blissett met. Together they developed their Vitality Wellness Approach that combines personalized care, evidence-based therapies, education and health coaching to garner independence and empowerment in their clients. They have applied this approach to help hundreds of people live their best lives.
Dr. Bankole focuses on helping individuals overcome cardio-metabolic diseases like hypertension, cholesterol disorders, diabetes, and erectile dysfunction. He administers Chelation Therapy, along with detoxification and cleansing, to neutralize the effects of heavy metals and other cardiovascular disease promoting toxins. He is also trained in therapeutic Ozone Therapy, which he employs to treat conditions characterized by pain, inflammation, fatigue, autoimmunity, poor healing, and suppressed immunity.
He has over a decade of medical experience, beginning with being an emergency medicine Physician Assistant at Kaiser Permanente in California, Hu Hu Kam Memorial Hospital in Arizona, and Prince George’s Hospital Center in Maryland. He was front and center to the failures of conventional medical care. It further served to motivate him to develop and deliver a different healthcare model.
Dr. Bankole received his Naturopathic Doctorate from Sonoran University of Health Sciences (formerly the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine) in Tempe, AZ and his undergraduate degree from Howard University College of Allied Health in Washington, DC where he completed the Physician Assistant Program.

What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct and regulated system of healthcare that emphasizes addressing the underlying cause/s of illness while promoting improvements in lifestyle, nutrition, and the use of natural therapies. Other tenants include encouraging patient empowerment and appreciation for the relationship between the organ systems. Naturopathic medicine works with the body to heal, not just cover up symptoms. While Naturopathic Medicine’s first goal is to provide a pathway to healing from disease, the aim is ultimately to elevate energy, vitality, and life. Naturopathic Medicine is one of the oldest continuously licensed health care professions in the U.S.
