Holly J. Brown, DAOM, LAc is a Doctor of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, Licensed Acupuncturist, and Herbalist. She practiced as a primary care practitioner for 10 years in Florida prior to relocating to Maine.

A major focus of Dr. Brown’s work is the study of the human microbiome, gastrointestinal system, and autoimmune disease. In her clinical practice, she has found that many issues relate back to the gut, specifically bacterial imbalance, absorption, and the functioning of the organs of excretion. She is well-versed in the use of stool analysis, providing her the opportunity to interpret the influence of organisms as well as the functional aspects of the digestive system on all manners of human physiology, including immunity, inflammation, neurotransmitter production, absorption of vitamins and minerals, and biliary function. Through this analysis, she is better able to diagnose and treat a wide array of issues as well as play a dramatic role in the prevention of disease and the long-term maintenance of health.
