Treat the Cause of Your Allergies
Allergies affect up to thirty percent of people. Seasonal or year-round allergy symptoms affect the upper respiratory tract mostly and include congestion, runny nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes. Far from being just a nuisance, allergies contribute to pain, disrupted sleep, snoring, sinusitis, learning disabilities in children, fatigue, irritability, work absenteeism, poor work quality and even depression. They can worsen eczema and asthma. Indeed, allergies lead to decreased quality of life in children and adults.
Soley relying on antihistamines and corticosteroids provides temporary relief only. In addition to recognizing environmental triggers such as pollen, trees, grasses, dander and mold; sufferers of moderate to severe allergies should be evaluated for underlying issues like gastrointestinal imbalances, food sensitivities and adrenal dysfunction. A detailed evaluation and proper testing can identify these contributing factors to help bring relief.
“Since cutting out foods from my diet that I’m allergic to I have not had digestive issues or severe nasal congestion. I’m amazed that cutting out foods that I thought were good for me, caused a lot of the issues I’ve been having. I had no idea that I was hurting my immune system and my ability to fight off illness, by the inflammation caused by eating such foods. Now that I can focus on eating foods that are good for me, and taking supplements regularly, I know my immune system is getting the boost it has needed for a while.”
Allergy Drops Safely and Effectively Treats the Cause of Your Allergies
Those suffering from multiple environmental allergies or with food and mold reactions should consider daily allergy drops. Unlike allergy drugs, sublingual immunotherapy addresses the underlying cause of allergies. Allergy drops are given under the tongue in gradually increasing dosages until you develop a tolerance to the allergy-causing substance. Allergy drops can be used to treat patients of all ages safely and effectively. Allergy drops have been used around the world for more than 100 years, and numerous studies show that allergy drops are safe and effective.
How Do Allergy Drops Work?
Sublingual immunotherapy, also called allergy drops, works like allergy shots by gradually helping your body build tolerance to the substances that cause your allergies. The difference is that the medicine is placed under your tongue in liquid form, affecting the immune system through very specialized cells found there. The World Health Organization has endorsed sublingual immunotherapy as a viable alternative to allergy shots.
Who Can Benefit from Allergy Drops?
Although most people with allergies can benefit from allergy drops, they’re especially ideal for those who can’t tolerate or don’t respond to allergy shots, as well as those who are unable to commit to allergy shot therapy. These include:
- Infants and children*
- People with eczema
- Those who are needle phobic
- Those with chronic conditions including sinusitis
- Those with food and mold allergies
- Those with multiple allergies including dust, pollen, foods, and animals
*Allergy drops have proven helpful for children with eczema and frequent ear infections, which often have underlying allergic causes. Research shows that many children with untreated eczema and allergies often develop asthma and other chronic conditions later in life, so treating them early can have life-long benefits and may prevent development of other allergies and asthma.

Cardio Chelation Therapy
Heart disease remains the number one cause of death in the U.S. It is not unusual for someone to not know they have advanced heart disease until they have crippling chest pain or worse, a heart attack. More commonly one may be aware they have unhealthy arteries and may be taking medications for risk factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Sadly, treating those conditions with medications alone leaves many players involved in heart disease free to cause further damage.
That is why we offer Chelation Therapy.
With Chelation Therapy, disodium EDTA (disodium ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) is mixed and slowly infused into the vein with magnesium, potassium, ascorbic acid and B-vitamins. Chelation Therapy works by binding and neutralizing toxic metals like lead and cadmium, then removing them from the arteries where they cause disease. Excess calcium in hardened arteries is similarly bound and removed. These actions help restore the health of the cells that make up the cardiovascular system. Remarkably, Chelation Therapy is shown to reduce the risk of death by over forty percent in adults with and without diabetes, after a heart attack. Those receiving Chelation Therapy often report improved exercise tolerance, less chest discomfort with activity, and lower blood pressure within just a small handful of sessions
The wide range of Chelation Therapy benefits include:
- Decreases platelet stickiness
- May remove calcium from arterial plaque
- Improves cardiac function
- Improves blood flow
- Decreases arterial inflammation
- Increases arterial wall elasticity
- Improves cognition
- Decreases oxidative damage to lipids
- Improves bone mineral density
- Improves kidney function
- Improves circulation in diabetic wounds
Chelation Therapy helps address underlying causes of heart disease:
- Coronary Heart Disease
- Cerebral Vascular Disease
- Rheumatoid Disorders
- Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease
- Diabetes Mellitus
- Heavy Metal Toxicity
- Peripheral Neuropathy
- Kidney Disease
Cardio Chelation is a safe and effective approach to improving heart wellness and function. It maintains the added benefit of not only treating cardiovascular disease but addresses underlying risk factors, all while improving symptoms.

Detoxification & Cleansing
Environmental toxins are linked to the most serious illnesses, and avoiding exposure to them is nearly impossible. Our doctors can determine which chemicals have been hindering your health and offer a plan for detoxing and restoring your body.
“I did the heavy metal challenge test and it showed I was heavy with mercury and lead. I experienced brain fog, fatigue, and soreness. I felt on edge and struggled to get through the day. The chelation treatment has been significant to my health. The brain fog is gone! I am able now to carry on a conversation. I would definitely recommend Inland Naturopathic and will continue to do so.”
As U.S industries continue to release over seven billion pounds of 650 different chemicals into our air, water, and food, annually, the relationship between chemicals and human disease will become increasingly apparent. In surveys conducted by the EPA, Benzene, chlorobenzene, toluene, dioxin, furan, DDE, DDT, PCBs, and BPA are just a few of the long list of chemicals found in over 85% of people.
Many of these chemicals are being found in higher concentrations than what is believed to be safe by regulatory agencies and are even showing up in the wombs of pregnant women, newborns’ bodies, and mothers’ breastmilk.
Exposure to a growing list of toxins is linked to almost every human illness, including:
● Heart disease
● Autoimmune conditions
● Respiratory problems
● Chronic fatigue
● Reproductive abnormalities
● High blood pressure
● Endocrine dysfunction
● Mood disorders
● Neurological problems
● Multiple chemical sensitivity
Our doctors will evaluate your toxin exposure history and perform specialized testing as necessary.
During treatment, an individualized cleansing regimen using detoxification-enhancing foods and supplements will be prescribed to promote the safe breakdown and removal of toxins. Where indicated, heavy metal testing and chelation therapy to remove toxic metals will be recommended. Adjunctive therapies such as colon hydrotherapy and sauna therapy can be advised to hasten the removal of toxins.
Effective treatment relies heavily on the identification and avoidance of ongoing chemical exposures. Our doctors will guide you in determining where exposure is happening and how to minimize it.

Millions of women suffer from hormonal imbalances, which may be triggered by perimenopause, menopause, adrenal fatigue, or PMS. Combining holistic remedies with highly effective hormone therapy, our doctors help women and men find their unique paths to balanced hormones and restored vibrancy.
“I was experiencing anxiety and panic attacks. Dr. Blissett was very helpful. She helped since day one. Every visit, it’s a pleasure to see her. All recommendations from her have helped. Office staff, as well, are very nice people. I absolutely recommend this place for any concerns about health.”
“I’ve always been healthy and have eaten clean, but I was feeling like crap! So, I decided to do something about it. The changes have been phenomenal. I was steady gaining weight on a very fast-pace and I had never been over-weight. I am now losing weight slowly so I know I will be able to keep it off. It has been very beneficial for me.
Dr. Blissett is phenomenal! I had a lot of blood work at the beginning of the program and it told her all the supplements I needed. The tips from the Health Coach were amazing! It was a total life change and I highly recommend this team.”
The symptoms of hormonal imbalance can be obvious or underlying and may include:
● Hot flashes
● Irregular or lack of menstrual cycle
● Low energy
● Mental fogginess
● Pain during intercourse
● Weight gain
● Low libido
● Loss of motivation
● Bone loss
● Urinary incontinence
● Vaginal dryness
● Inability to manage stress
● Fibrocystic breast changes
In addition to unpleasant symptoms, hormonal imbalances can increase the risk of heart disease, blood-sugar disorders, forgetfulness, weak bones, lack of energy, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and underactive thyroid gland.
Men may experience a lowering of testosterone levels known as male menopause or andropause. Symptoms include fatigue, loss of motivation, irritability, depression, loss of muscle, and loss of interest in sex.
In many cases, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is an effective solution to not only ease uncomfortable symptoms but also decrease the health risks associated with declining hormones. Unlike conventional hormones, bioidentical hormones are biologically identical to human hormones.
Benefits of BHRT include:
● Regulating the menstrual cycle
● Improving breast and bone health
● Improving libido, cognition, sleep, and mood
● Increasing muscle strength
● Increasing skin elasticity
● Protecting and supporting cardiovascular health
● Better bone density
● Overall well-being
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapies are customized to each individual and may include:
● Estrogens to help relieve common menopausal symptoms such as mood, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, and osteoporosis.
● Testosterone to improve energy, mood, sexual desire, and bone health.
● Progesterone to help relieve night sweats and insomnia.
● Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) to help improve memory, relaxation, and ability to handle stress.
● Cortisol to combat chronic stress, fatigue, and inflammation.
Your bioidentical hormone prescription is determined by reviewing your symptoms during a detailed medical evaluation and, when necessary, laboratory findings (hormone testing with saliva, urine, or blood is sometimes used).
*Internet acquired testing kits are not recommended as they can give inaccurate results due to collection limitations and questionable scientific methods.
Utilizing a comprehensive, Naturopathic approach to address the underlying cause of hormone imbalances along with hormone replacement will resolve symptoms faster and encourage better results with lower hormone dosages. In some cases, the use of botanicals, nutrition, and supplementation can restore balance without the need for any hormone replacements.

Ozone Therapy, well researched and validated, has perhaps the broadest clinical use of any healing modality known. In fact, it effectively treats at least 130 different diseases. Therapeutic benefits unique to ozone’s three oxygen atom structure, are its ability to improve the body’s utilization of oxygen, bringing more adenosine triphosphate (ATP) producing mitochondria aboard, thereby upregulating energy production. That is why Ozone Therapy is so useful to individuals who have conditions characterized by energy depletion such as heart disease, respiratory disorders, and chronic fatigue. Ozone Therapy is perhaps best known for its ability to upregulate innate immunity to effectively treat bacterial, fungal, and viral infections. It accomplishes this by effecting cytokines, interferon, and by increasing hydrogen peroxide. Ozone Therapy can modulate the immune response, increasing its’ action in the presence of pathogens, while decreasing it in autoimmunity.
Individuals with autoimmune diseases are known to experience some of the most impressive benefits of Ozone Therapy. Ozone Therapy reduces systemic and local inflammation by inhibiting cytokine production and by modulation of T-helper cells.
Ozone Therapy upregulates resistance to oxidative damage by activation of nuclear factor erythroid 2–related factor 2 (Nrf2), promotes healthy aging, enhances innate protection against cancer, protects against liver toxicity, promotes phase II detoxification, reduces pain, regulates and recruits the body’s stem cells, powerfully reduces inflammation, and improves mitochondrial function.
- Decreases systemic inflammation
- Enhancement of innate immunity
- Enhances oxygen utilization
- Corrects mitochondrial insufficiency
- Upregulates ATP production
- Increases nitrous oxide production for vasodilation
- Healthy aging and antioxidant properties
- Upregulates detoxification
- Increases nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD)
- Increases red blood cell flexibility
Conditions that Ozone Therapy treats:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Disorders of micro circulation
- Respiratory disorders
- Local and systematic infections
- Nerve pain
- Musculo-skeletal pain and arthritis
- Gastrointestinal infections
- Bacterial, fungal, and viral infections
- Eye disorders
Ozone Therapy is an effective therapy with broad ranging therapeutic benefits. Blood ozonation is the most therapeutic way to receive Ozone Therapy. However, ozone is beneficial, even when locally administered.

Regenerative Injection Therapy
“There has been no knee pain since the first round of injections. Now, after Prolotherapy, my knee is much more stable with no buckling or slippage from side to side. The benefits I’ve noticed definitely exceeded my expectations! Also, great people to work with at the center!”
Regenerative Medicine is an innovative field of health care offering therapies that naturally stimulate the body to self-heal from injuries or arthritis. Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT) is also known as Prolotherapy and is administered in-office by a series of injections into weakened, injured, or painful joints, stimulating the reparative healing response.
Prolotherapy treats any form of musculoskeletal pain. Treatments can be used on new injuries or older ones that never properly healed.
Regenerative Medicine treats conditions including:
● Ligament and tendon tears
● Back pain
● Groin pain
● Joint laxity and hypermobility
● Tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow
● Pain and arthritis of the neck
● Knee pain
● Rotator cuff injuries
● Pain at ischial tuberosity
Decades of research has found that the body responds to Prolotherapy just as it would with any injury, by stimulating the wound healing cascade, the body’s healing biology at a cellular level. Ultimately, the structural integrity of the joint is restored, and pain-firing nerves are quieted.
Conventional therapies lack the regenerative quality of Prolotherapy and don’t address the underlying deterioration. Braces and support, pain medications, surgery, extended periods of immobility, etc. do nothing to stimulate repair of the affected tissue. By blocking the release of healing cells needed for repair, anti-inflammatories and corticosteroid injections accelerate ligament deterioration, leading to more pain over time.
Prolotherapy may be used in combination with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and stem cells. PRP has gained popularity, especially amongst athletes with sports injuries or persons with severe arthritis. PRP in Prolotherapy accelerates the healing process. When PRP is used, your blood will be drawn so we can acquire a highly concentrated sample of your own growth factor, containing platelets, which are then injected into the injury.
Research has found successful use of PRP in the treatment of:
● Tennis elbow
● Rotator cuff injuries of the shoulder
● Ligament sprains
● Osteoarthritis of the knee
● Tendon deterioration
● Meniscal tears
● Injuries to the medial collateral ligament
● Plantar fasciitis
For over fifteen years, Dr. Ayo Bankole has helped individuals regain function and freedom from painful joints using Prolotherapy. He is trained in the classic Hackett-Hemwall Prolotherapy technique through the American Osteopathic Association of Prolotherapy Regenerative Medicine and the Integrative Regenerative Medicine Academy.
If you are suffering from musculoskeletal pain and limited in your ability to perform or participate in the activities that you love, it’s time to experience the regenerative capabilities of Prolotherapy. After a series of treatments, you can expect to regain mobility and get back to living life to the fullest, without relying on damaging pain medications or dangerous narcotics.
