Yasmina Old is an integrative health practitioner and an essential oils educator. She focuses on helping people take full control of their health through personalised healing programs designed to address the root cause of the dis-ease. These programs involve a holistic approach which includes nutrition, stress management, exercise, detoxification, restoring a healthy gut function and where necessary, functional medicine lab testing. She has a virtual practice for her private clients, but also loves working with everyday mums in her essential oil community to educate them and empower them through the use of essential oils to care for their family’s health. She believes that once mums take that step away from reflexively going to the doctors for everything, they begin to realise they have power and they start to feel capable and confident. Once that happens, it becomes very difficult for them to take anything at face value just because ‘an expert’ tells them to. Her dream is to grow her community of awakened mums who then turn round and help awaken others. “The conventional medical system is very tyrannical. Most doctors will not engage in a conversation with their patients, and people are often forced to accept interventions simply because they feel powerless. I teach women to take back responsibility for their health, and have the medical system serve them, rather than be passive recipients of treatments.” Yas lives north of Girona in the Alt Emporda region and runs workshops in Girona and Barcelona.
