Paulette McMillan is the co-founder of the Center for Health and Wellness, an integrated center offering clinical nutrition, acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and Ayurvedic medicine.  She is a licensed practitioner in both nutrition and acupuncture.  Her training in nutrition included graduate work at Rutger’s State University and New York University. She completed her dietetic internship at Harper Grace Hospitals in Detroit, MI.

Paulette felt that combining her nutrition background with Chinese medicine would enhance her skills as a practitioner.  She completed 5 years of graduate level training in Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine at the Maryland Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland.  She is board certified in Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and Oriental medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

She has achieved the status of Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) by successfully completing the Certification Examination for Diabetes Educators. Achieving the CDE credential demonstrates specialized knowledge in the care of people with diabetes.

Paulette’s passion for advancing her knowledge of nutrition and healing has lead her to integrate the Functional medicine approach into her practice. She believes that the functional medicine approach to health is the most holistic and comprehensive model today.  To further her knowledge, she completed advanced training in functional medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine and the International and American Association of Clinical Nutritionists.  She was awarded the Certified Clinical Nutritionist (CCN) credential by the Clinical Nutrition Certification Board for her training in functional medicine.

Her interest in natural healing has led her to pursue knowledge in other areas as well.  She has studied western herbal medicine through the School of Herbal Medicine in Washington and the Ayurvedic system of medicine through the Institute of Vedic Studies in New Mexico.
