Dr. Rebecca Provorse grew up in rural northern California and spent her adolescence wandering the hills, vineyards and orchards of Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake counties. Her innate love of the natural world became woven into her wonder of science and medicine. She was pre-med at UC Berkeley in California and completed her bachelor's in science from the University of Oregon. In 2004 she graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) with a doctorate in naturopathy (ND) and a masters in Oriental Medicine (MSOM). She has taught at the graduate level, spoken at numerous professional events and published herbal monographs for supplement companies.
For over 13 years, Dr. Provorse has been in private practice specializing in endocrinology (hormone-related disorders). She was the first Wiley Protocol practitioner in Oregon, blazing trails in this state using circannual rhythmic replacement. She continues to offer this revolutionary hormone therapy (as well as static HRT options) to cis- and transgender adults in her practice.
Dr. Provorse treats thyroid disorders every day she sees patients. She is well versed in auto-immune thyroid conditions: Hashimoto's and Grave's disease, taking a integrative approach to therapy (lifestyle modifications, customized nutrition, medication management and nutraceutical supplementation). She has done extensive continuing education on thyroid issues.
Diabetes is the ultimate endocrine disorder. Dr. Provorse follows the teachings of Richard Bernstein MD and his student Mona Morstein ND in her management of types I, II and LADA diabetes. Interrelated to diabetes, is consideration of cardiovascular disease. Dr. Provorse implements integrative cardiology diagnostic and treatment measures for the basics, such as hypertension and elevated cholesterol.
In 2005, Dr. Provorse founded Glow Healthcare for Women LLC (a sole prop women's health practice) and in 2010 rebranded as Glow Healthcare Integrative Medicine (an expansion to care to care for all adults). In 2015, she moved her practice under the roof of Santé Aesthetics & Wellness in order to downsize and further specialize with the intent of improving the quality of care delivered to patients. She now sees patients part-time, investing her non-practice professional development into research, writing and public speaking. She is available for speaking engagements, as a contributor to professional magazines and for consultation.
