Inspiring Conversations with Lisa Douthit

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lisa Douthit.

Hi Lisa, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I created my program because if I didn’t, I knew I was going to die – like for real- and so would a lot of others just like me.

After having cancer four different times, I found myself lying lifeless in a hospital bed with a terrible autoimmune disease that was slowly killing me. My doctors had given me every possible treatment they could think of, but none of it was working. I realized at that moment that if I didn’t do something soon, I would probably never be able to see my three children again.

That night in the ICU, I had a dream. It showed me all the limiting beliefs, all the twisted benefits I was getting from keeping myself sick, all the shit I needed to clean out of my emotional body so my physical body could recover. There were a lot of dark thoughts, a ton of childhood trauma, a lifetime of trance-like negative behavior that needed healing and remolding.

To live, I needed to take responsibility for my life so I started reengineering my brain to shift my beliefs and focus. Slowly as I let go of my past, my body started to relax. The more it relaxed, the better I felt. The better I felt, the more the medications that weren’t working before started to kick in. The spiral kept circling up until I could finally get out of the hospital and the bed I’d been lying in at home for a year.

I continued my work on patient zero (me) until I went from bedridden, to a wheelchair, to a walker, to skiing six months later.

Now I teach my process to people all over the world because I want everyone to life their best lives too in abundant energy and health.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Taking a hard look into one’s head is never a smooth road. It takes guts, patience, a lot of kleenex, and a strong drive to live from your soul and not from your fear. The choice was easy for me because the other option wasn’t great if I didn’t. What I realized was that we all have a version of being stuck. For me, it was literally being stuck in my bedroom unable to be a functioning part of society because of my health, but we all box ourselves in some way at some point.

Knowing how horrible it felt to be stuck inspired me to help others- but I still had serious health issues, three kids in elementary school, and no system to teach others how to heal. I had a lot to figure out if I was going to see clients. Eventually, because I practiced what I preached, I got stronger physically, mentally, and spiritually. I started seeing people from my home office. The more I worked, the stronger my desire to serve because I saw how quickly people shifted like myself. I worked out a system that continues to grow even ten years later.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
I remember thinking I needed to write some things down so my kids would know what their mom was thinking if things took another turn for the worst which turned into my book Wellness Warrior. I wondered how many other women were thinking they may never watch their kids grow up too? I wondered if they felt as isolated and depressed in their homes as I did in mine. It was a very dark time for me.

I am thankful every day that I figured out how to crawl out of my bed and back into life, but many don’t. I understand completely how people feel because after having seven deadly diseases – I’ve been there and can relate on a deep level. So many don’t know how to take your power back from disease. I’m really happy I got the opportunity to support hundreds just like me in finding their way back to themselves and their families.

My superpower is the ability to show the one on one and group clients I coach how to find their own superpowers so they can step out of the health care model (which I didn’t find particularly healthy or caring) and into the empowered lives they came to live trauma-free.

Do you have recommendations for books, apps, blogs, etc?
Untamed by Glennon Doyle is one of my current favs. It may sound funny but I actually re-read my own book Wellness Warrior sometimes to remember how far I’ve come and what is possible for my clients.

I love Brene Brown’s podcast ‘Unlocking Us’ and I follow Dr. Joe Dispenza’s guided meditations on YouTube. Some were my inspiration for my own guided meditations on my free app WellU in the app store.
