Thomas Martin: As a former sufferer of heart failure as well as an LVAD recipient, I am sympathetic to these people. But what I learned is that heart failure can be reversed. Instead of going forward with a heart transplant, I took a holistic approach to my disease, reversed the failure and the LVAD was removed. I documented my journey and path to health in my book, "One Percent: My Journey Overcoming Heart Disease." I now speak to groups and blog on non-allopathic options to health. An LVAD definitely saved my life and bought me time to find answers, but I'm even more grateful that I chose this path and am back to a normal life with my own heart.
