Our Story

Mikailah and Gloria met in Naturopathic medical school in Portland, OR and immediately bonded over their shared dream to open a nature cure center.

Following graduation, they went on to work at separate Naturopathic and Integrative medical practices. They both soon realized how difficult it is for patients to make lifestyle changes while stuck in their normal routine, and how necessary it is to have a space where patients can go to not only learn the tools for healthy living, but also FEEL the benefits when those tools are used on a daily basis. Their dream of hosting nature cure retreats together now became a necessity in order for their patients to really succeed in their health journeys!

Our Staff

Gloria Rangelova, ND

Born in Bulgaria, Gloria grew up with strong roots in natural healing. Gathering herbs, drinking teas, pickling vegetables and making yogurt were part of normal day to day activities. After moving to the US at the age of 12, she quickly experienced the harmful effects that processed foods have on the body and noticed how prevalent chronic conditions were in the states. She was inspired to share her knowledge and help people come back to a healthier way of life.

Gloria went on to study at the National University of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, OR (graduated in 2019) and completed additional trainings in herbal medicine, homeopathy, drainage therapy, pelvic floor therapy, nasal specific therapy, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. She became a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in California and went on to work at Sajune Institute for Restorative and Integrative Medicine before opening Glorious Health Retreats.

Vancouver Naturopathic Doctor

Gloria believes there is not one treatment that works for all, she prefers to get to know her patients on a deeper level in order to find the individual approach best suited for them.

In her free time, Gloria enjoys being active and spending time outdoors with her husky Leia- hiking, camping, snowboarding, yoga, rock climbing, stand up paddleboarding, and swimming to name a few. She loves wildcrafting and playing with herbs, making herbal medicine and natural beauty products. Traveling the world and dancing (salsa & bachata) is what brings her the most joy! Gloria is fluent in English, Bulgarian, semi-fluent in Spanish, and more to come soon!

Mikailah Grover, ND

Ever since a young age, Mikailah had a passion to help others. She completed her bachelor’s degree in environmental science at the University of Washington where she cultivated her love for the environment. Mikailah went on to study naturopathic medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. Here she became extensively trained in homeopathic medicine, herbal medicine, drainage and detoxification practices, whole-food nutrition, extended supervision of water-only fasting, and physical medicine techniques such as craniosacral, nasal specific therapy, and naturopathic manipulation.

During her third year of medical school, Mikailah interned at the TrueNorth Health Center in Santa Rosa, CA and here is where she became inspired to open an in-patient medical facility that offered her patients the opportunity to heal their mind, body and spirit, all under the same roof.

In her private practice, Dr. Grover specializes in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease, and recognizes that each person is unique and deserves a treatment plan tailored to their specific needs and goals. When not seeing patients, Dr. Grover enjoys spending time with her family, growing and preparing nutritious foods, and restoring her mind and body through yoga and time spent in nature.
