About Dr. Glanville

DIGITAL IMAGEDr. Paul Glanville has had the privilege of practicing family medicine for over 44 years. He received his medical school degree from University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1972 and did his internship at Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, Virginia in 1972-73. He moved to Colorado in 2006, became board-certified in family practice and was medical director of Basin Clinic in Naturita until 2009.

In 2007 Dr. Glanville realized that he was not “aging” very well and began looking into “healthy aging”, first researching adrenal dysfunction, low thyroid that is commonly missed by traditional Western medicine and toxic metals. Then in 2008 he found out about bio-identical hormones and was astounded at how they helped improve his own health. He started practicing integrative medicine in 2008 and has been in practice in Ridgway since then.

Dr. Glanville is passionate about helping aging people get healthy again and stay healthy to have an active, joyful live and be an important part of the world community again.  He believes too many “elderly” are “put out to pasture” which speeds up the lingering, miserable slow decline of their life that continues for the next 30 years! He believes elderly people can and should have a longer, healthier life past the usual “retirement” time – they can be active leaders in their community, adding back to others’ lives for decades.

A lot of his inspiration comes from his wonderful wife, La Vonne, whom he met in February 2006 and married in November 2006. His other passions are scuba diving (and underwater photography), downhill and cross-country skiing, hiking, Cross-Fit exercise, and woodworking (among other things).
