Hi I'm Dawn!

A Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and now thriving after years of deep adrenal burnout! Minerals gave me back my spark!

I have worked with women just like me to recover their health. All through one simple non-invasive test called an HTMA (Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis).

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

Mineral Imbalances and deficiencies may account for 80-90% of health issues. Addressing the mineral piece of your health puzzle, through this simple non-invasive test, will go a long way towards deeper lasting results that take you beyond surviving to thriving. Especially, if you've already tried cleaning up your diet and lifestyle and just aren't getting the results you want.


Here's how nutritional therapy through an HTMA can help you!
Your Nutrition Needs


You'll see what's going on with your metabolism and know what foods are best to support either speeding it up, or slowing it down. You'll also learn what foods to focus on for certain nutrients based on your mineral imbalances.


Your Mineral Deficiencies & Imbalances


You'll see what minerals are out of balance individually, but also in tandem with each other because certain mineral pairs work together. Every mineral has an impact on every other mineral, so this is really valuable info.


Your Heavy Metals & Detox Needs

HTMA is a screening tool for heavy metals including uranium, lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum and nickel. HTMA is a reliable indicator of toxicity and is helpful in monitoring detoxification progress.

Your Adrenal & Thyroid Health


This might be one of my favorite parts of the analysis. It goes beyond the hormones circulating in blood to what your cells are able to receive. Hair Analysis is the rest of the picture when it comes to recovering from adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism. If your hormone can't get into your cells effectively you need to know so you can do something about it.

Your Mental Health


Anxiety, depression, brain fog, ADD, ADHD, PMS and other mood disorders are often directly connected to missing minerals and excess metals. Magnesium, for example, when the body is deficient you can experience symptoms of anxiety, irritability and hyper-kinetic behavior (ADHD). Mercury, a heavy metal, affects your memory, mood and thyroid and can contribute to depression.

The Top 5 Ways HTMA Will Help You



1. Diet Plan & Diet Tweaks

There is no one size fits all diet. Part of the reason is everyone has different physiological needs, based on their current health (aka: biochemistry). I love the information you learn about your body through hair analysis because it goes beyond a diet framework and helps get more targeted information. It won't tell you about your food allergies, but it will help you see the best foods for your metabolism and current mineral balance. Which is super cool. I can't tell you how many clients had tried 'X' healing diet and it wasn't working for them, but once they got their results and we made tweaks to what they were eating it made such a huge difference.

Sometimes people have no clue where to start with their diet so they don't do anything at all. The information from a hair test helps give the confidence you need to make diet changes.

2. The Right Supplements

This is a big one. I know people mean well trying to include supplements to improve their health, but a lot of times they are just guessing. You can't really know what YOU need, right now, without testing. Even if 'so and so' famous health guru wrote an article about the merits of a certain vitamin, you still don't technically know your exact need for it, not to mention how it interacts with all other nutrients and minerals. You'd need a degree for that but based on lab testing too. It's also helpful to take only the right things to avoid making yourself feel worse, not to mention save $ on buying the wrong things.

3. Gentle Detox Strategies

Sometimes people think detox is a one time affair or something that is extreme. It's neither. Your body is detoxing daily and you can help it do it's job better by including simple targeted strategies and habits. Otherwise, it will be like not helping take the trash out every day. You get the picture, right?

4. Lifestyle Changes

You don't know, what you don't know, until you know. The cool thing about a hair analysis is that it also helps you consider things for your health, you didn't think of. Stress relief practices, how to test your drinking water and find better solutions, how to switch to healthier home and personal care products. And even considerations for the appropriate exercise for your current health status. Sometimes, just a simple lifestyle tweak can make an HUGE difference in how you feel.

5. Clarity & Relief

One of the biggest things I hear from clients is that they are astounded with relief because they had been trying so many things for their health not knowing what was working. Or if they were doing the right things. As well as relieved that something could finally help explain why they were feeling off in their health.

Curious about HTMA and what it can offer you? Check out some testimonials from my amazing clients.

Dawn was willing to challenge any issue that appeared for me and she did it well. Since starting to work with her, I have done nothing but positively progress toward my goal of optimum health.

I have learned more than I realized I ever could, I continue to learn daily it seems. I am eliminating the unhealthy learning and toxic buildup from the past mistakes and replacing with effective strategies for improving and maintaining my own health. I take no prescribed medications and no over the counter drugs at this point in life and I am thrilled about that! I'm in the midst of balancing my mineral ratios through a short-term supplement protocol in response to the HTMA (Hair Analysis).

~Heidi (Pennsylvania)

After years of testing, I had gotten a glimpse of the issues that were ailing me. However, one of my big hindrances was that I suffered from chronic fatigue, lack of clarity and memory loss. So whenever I would go to my Naturopath, he would explain what my issues may be, but I would always have a hard time relaying that information to my fiance, friends, and family because the reports didn't make any sense and my mental clarity was failing me.

Through one-on-one support with Dawn and my latest and greatest move, the hair analysis, I was able to see all of my potential ailments in one report. It was also broken into somewhat 'Layman's terms' and, through assistance with Dawn, I better came to understand the report.

The report and Dawn gave me a clear picture of what I needed to do over the next months to begin getting to a healthier place. The best part about it though was that I could forward this report to my fiance and loved ones, so they too could have an all-encompassing clearer picture of where I resided with my health.

I'm happy with the progress my body is making. I've been taking the test for my health for years and I can say definitively that I would recommend anyone looking to improve their quality of life to work with Dawn through this test first!

~ Hope (Oregon)

I had done a lot of healing before I came across Completely Essential Nutrition and I was in two minds as to whether to use their services.  I am so glad that I opted to go for a htma and consult with Dawn! Her advice and recommendations were extremely helpful. After using synthetic supplements as part of my healing practice I was starting to find that I was struggling to maintain the good level of health I had initially achieved. Dawn’s approach made so much sense and confirmed what I had begun to suspect, that a lot of synthetic supplementation was the not key to balance or long lasting progress.

~Heather (Texas)

My son with ASD had a MASSIVE turnaround using the HTMA process with Dawn. His symptoms (anxiety, sensory issues, inability to concentrate, lack of social skills, basically just a miserable kid) have dissipated by 75%. It’s truly amazing. 

~Laura (Cailfornia)

Working on a plan with my HTMA has restored my faith in healing with food. I had been to a family dr, naturopathic dr, integrative medicine dr through out the course of 3 years and didn’t feel any better. Tired, insomnia, headaches/migraines 3/4 weeks a month. Thyroid checked out fine, adrenals checked out fine, minerals (blood tests) checked out fine, but I still felt crappy. Through a serendipitous interaction on FB I found out about Dawn and her process this summer and got my HTMA done in February. I started with a healing crisis (increased insomnia, headaches, heart palpitations, anxiety) which spooked me a little but had great communication with Dawn and we made a few adjustments to my plan and by my second month I was sleeping so much better, and handling stress so much better, and by the 3rd month I was able to implement my full plan. Years of not taking care of myself will take more than a couple of months to fix, but I saw more progress in those three months than in the years before it with the random drs. Because I had to go slow I waited to get my second HTMA done until 6 months after instead of three so that’s this month. I’m excited to see where’s it at and what to do next.

~Covey (North Carolina)

I am 9 months in working with Dawn. My first HTMA showed low sodium and potassium and extremely high calcium and magnesium, suggesting blood sugar regulation issues, adrenal fatigue and extremely sluggish thyroid. All of my symptoms matched up with this test (modern medicine said I was perfectly healthy, but I never felt good… They thought I was crazy). Focused on sodium for a few months (because I noticed a difference with eating more salt) and my anxiety came down (also tried a couple other suggestions of hers which were great). Also, taking in more sodium got rid of sugar cravings almost immediately! Got a second HTMA and things were improving (and so we’re my symptoms). Calcium and magnesium levels came down (a good thing for me), sodium to potassium ratio improved. She told me to keep working on sodium and potassium balance as they were actually lower on the second test (can signify the body is in stress or detoxing). I cannot recommend mineral balancing highly enough. I was skeptical at first but I am now a believer. Please understand this is not a quick fix program and it takes work. There will be setbacks, which is inevitable when the body is truly healing from the inside out. I have good days and bad days, but the good days are getting better and the bad days are getting fewer. Getting my third test next month and excited to see the changes. If you are debating about it, just do it! Best wishes!

Completely Essential Nutrition and Dawn came highly recommended to me by a friend, a highly informed and educated Reiki practitioner. She has tried many things to help her and her family return to health. Some successful, some not so much. She has spent a great deal of time, money and effort. The work she did with Dawn including the HTMA is something that she felt gave her real answers and real results. I couldn’t agree more. The results were easy to understand and so were Dawn’s instructions and remedies. I am a medical intuitive with a worldwide following and I am very selective about the practitioners I use and especially the ones I recommend to my clients. I will highly recommend Dawn.

~Katie (Washington)

Just wanted to brag on the HTMA process and Dawn! I just completed my second HTMA about 10 months after my first and just had my consultation with Dawn. First, she went ahead and did all the analysis and consultation while she and her entire family are still recovering from the flu because she knew I was anxious to know my results – a real champion dedicated to the care and health of her clients!! Most of my results were improved after following the plan she developed for me last time and she did such a great job explaining the health journey – how my liver is waking up and how my body is using the different minerals – and encouraging me to continue and take some new steps as my health improves. It’s complicated but she makes this effort so worth it and I’m so grateful for the teaching and support to uncover the causes of the issues and how my body is created to work, not to just throw things at it to fix symptoms. Awesome company, process and consultant!

Testimonial for Dawn, Mineral Maven and HTMA Consultant, Extraordinaire 🙂

I’ve been working with Dawn for the past few years. Since we began, Dawn has helped me to understand my mineral status and what it has meant for my body. Dawn has a great deal of knowledge in how to interpret the results and she has a unique ability to prioritize what needs to be worked on.

Dawn has been my greatest supporter, always showing empathy and patience. She has reassured me when certain markers were not normal. Her encouragement has helped me to keep the big picture in mind, so that I can see how what we’re doing fits in with my healing. She gives me hope that everything is going to be okay; and, sure enough, it always is.

Dawn is always willing to answer questions and she asks for my input to tweak her recommendations so they are individual to my needs. I have made steady improvement by following the program that she outlines for me. Each step along the way has shown me that HTMA analysis is the way to go, as evidenced by my increased energy, better sleep, and clearer thinking.

I love Dawn’s focus of supporting the body, so that it can heal naturally. Healing takes time. I’m proof positive that staying the course and doing the things she recommends really works!
