About Us:

Middle Path was founded with a mission and purpose based on the understanding that truly resilient health and quality of life must start with empowering the individual, who can then in turn better assist their family and friends, which in turn supports a healthier community, which then ripples outwards to the health of our ecosystems and planet as a whole.

All of our products, practitioners, and educational topics thus align with our company values and seek to provide only the best of service to our community, in the deepest gratitude.

Middle Path Nutrition and Wellness Center owner/founder, Ellen Selm, has a passion for people and place. Growing up in the foothills of western North Carolina has nurtured her deep love for the southern Appalachians and provided the backdrop for her interest in plants for food, supplements, and body care.


Ellen has over a decade of experience in the health and wellness industry and has spent half of her lifetime (and counting) studying nutrition, herbs, and holistic healing modalities.

When you visit Middle Path Nutrition and Wellness Center you will be greeted like the friend we’ve had for years – and no matter whether you’re just starting out with being more proactive for your health, if you’re feeling stuck in a rut and need some support, or if you are a prime example of a long-time wellness advocate, all the same we are here to support you!
