Every Body Holds A Story Podcast

Dec 1, 2021

Today we are speaking with SaraMae Hollandsworth.  SaraMae is a Wellness Executive + Entrepreneur, Physical + Spiritual Fitness Expert, Double Certified Health Coach & Personal Trainer, Speaker, Writer, and Athlete. SaraMae Hollandsworth had over 20 years of experience as a health and fitness expert and entrepreneur. She is a high-performance athlete and trainer who suffered a near-life-ending infection that landed her in life support and in a coma and ultimately caused her to have both legs amputated below the knees. Her story is one of rising from rock bottom and near-death to rebuild her life better, stronger, healthier, and happier than before. To repurpose her pain into power, purpose, and potential. She is committed to using her story to help others heal, thrive, and fulfill their God-given purpose.

In this episode we discuss:

1) The experience that SaraMae went through with multi-system organ failure and being placed in a coma for 2 weeks. Every time they attempted to take her out of the coma, she would crash and it was a miracle that she came out of her coma and survived.  She describes her time in the hospital in detail and what her body went to, how her kidneys shut down, how her weight changed from the fluid in that time.

2) The process from the beginning in the hospital to the time of limb salvage to the actual amputation of both legs was almost 1 year in time and that process then led to having her hip replaced twice as it is potentially where the infection started.

3) The foundations of the healing process and how SaraMae was all about the physical aspect of taking care of herself and when that was taken away from her for a year, she had to dive into the emotional, spiritual, and feminine side of the healing process.  This also allowed her to come back even stronger physically. She dove into the concept of “Savage Surrender”, forgiveness, letting go, and what a spiritual awakening can actually look like.
