Our Mission

Our Mission is to address the root cause of your health issues and restore your health and vitality. Through partnering and education, you will receive the tools and direction to live an extraordinary life.

Our Core Values Of Care

Find the Cause

We figure out the underlying causes of your health issues because you’re a whole person – not a collection of symptoms.



Fix the System

We don’t treat symptoms. We reverse the chronic conditions which cause the symptoms.

Feel the Difference

Fixing the underlying condition means you are free to enjoy your life – not manage your chronic issues.



21st Century Medicine

Conventional medicine focuses on managing your symptoms with drugs.

21st Century Medicine is Functional Medicine and focuses on resolving the underlying cause of your condition. We seek to give you solutions, not more band-aids.

Co-Creating Health

Mentoring, patient education, a step by step approach, and accountability with your care team produces predictable success.

Innovative Treatments

Your body is intelligent and has the capacity for healing and self-regulation. When one system is not functioning properly the compensations can become complex requiring a deeper and more integrated level of understanding.

The Philosophy That Drives Us

“The patient comes first. Do whatever it takes to effectively, comfortably, and safely treat the patient.”

Dr. Glenn founded The Carroll Institute on the understanding that finding the Root Cause is the key to reversing chronic illness, and, the belief that the patient is an instrumental partner in returning their body back to health.

Dr. Andrew Weil, MD said, “We need a whole new kind of medicine”.

Traditional medicine or “20th Century Medicine” focused on treating symptoms with drugs. That doesn’t work any longer and has lead to a society plagued by progressive chronic disease. “21st Century Medicine” is focused on finding and fixing the underlying cause of your condition. Focusing on the “why.” Why do you as an individual have the problems you have?

At The Carroll Institute, we will leave no stone unturned when it comes to discovering your root cause and helping you reverse it.

“Dr. Glenn Has Definitively Changed My Life For The Better…”

I’ve had IBS and stomach problems for as long as I can remember. No matter where I went, no one could seem to help me. However, after meeting with Dr. Glenn I knew my problems could be solved. His comprehensive health assessment gave me the tools to finally improve my stomach health for good!

“The Team At The Carroll Institute Are So Good, They’re Life-Changing…”

All I can say is finally somebody listened to me. Before the doctor would just say your labs look fine. But I didn’t feel good and they would try and put me on anti-depression drugs. Dr. Glenn figured out that the root cause of my thyroid problem was my GI system.
