Dennis H. Harris, MDDr. Harris graduated from Ohio State University Medical School in 1963 and completed his internship at Grant Hospital, a University affiliated hospital in Columbus, Ohio in 1964. He then entered a residency training program, specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Ohio State University. Upon completion, he moved to Dallas, Texas in 1966 to become chief resident in a Physical Medicine residency training program at Parkland Hospital, Southwestern Medical School, University of Texas. He completed the last year of his residency training in 1967 and moved to Scottsdale, Arizona to begin private practice.
In 1968, Dr. Harris established the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Scottsdale Memorial Hospital in Scottsdale, Arizona and was appointed director of that department which he operated until 1984. Dr. Harris then established the Southwest Pain Control Program and directed that program through 1974. This program was the first chronic pain control program in the Southwest, the eighth program in the country, and the first program to be performed on only an outpatient basis. After the efficacy of the program was well established, the entire program was moved to Mesa Lutheran Hospital in 1974 at the hospital’s request. The hospital appointed Dr. Harris as director of that program, and he maintained this position through 1983.
Dr. Harris subsequently maintained a practice devoted primarily to the non-surgical diagnosis and treatment of all conditions of pain. Many of Dr. Harris’ patients were involved in legal proceeding, having been victims of serious automobile or work-related accidents. These patients were often referred to Dr. Harris by the leading personal injury attorneys. This allowed Dr. Harris the opportunity to not only treat the most serious cases, but to also testify in hundreds of depositions and make countless court appearances as an expert medical witness. He became known throughout the West for his skill in the courtroom, as, out of the hundreds of cases in which he testified over more than 30 years, only one case was lost.
Professionally, Dr. Harris has been continually involved in lecturing and teaching, often lecturing groups of hundreds of physicians or physical therapists. He has presented several papers at national meetings and appeared before large medical audiences.
While in residency at Ohio State University, Dr. Harris became the co-inventor of a gel pad to prevent bed sores, negotiated a licensing agreement with The Stryker Corporation, and subsequently traveled the country, presenting the product at hospital meetings and medical gatherings. During that time, he designed the national sales and marketing program for The Stryker Corporation with regard to that product, and he then trained the national and international sales staff of The Stryker Corporation prior to the introduction of the product.
In spite of being trained in traditional medicine, Dr. Harris observed patient after patient experiencing severe, and sometimes life-threatening, side effects from medications. Believing that there was a safer, better and healthier way to practice medicine, Dr. Harris began reading, attending courses and going to lectures and seminars to learn about nutrition and natural health products. This opened up an entirely new world for Dr. Harris, and he developed a new passion—treating the whole patient instead of just symptoms…doing it safely and effectively with natural health products…and helping his patients achieve the best quality of life. Dr. Harris strongly believes that everything we do should be directed toward improving our quality of life.
In 1993, Dr. Harris created and began clinically testing a natural oral remedy to eliminate snoring. This product eventually became No More SNORzzz. In 1994, after clarifying the link between snoring, allergies, sinusitis and asthmatic bronchitis, Dr. Harris created and began testing a natural formulation for relief for allergy and sinus symptoms. 83% good to excellent test results were obtained. This product eventually became BREATHese.
Dr. Harris’ major passion in medicine has been the non-surgical diagnosis and treatment of pain. This propelled Dr. Harris into active research and development wherein, during the past twelve years, he has created an entire line of natural, safe, effective and unique products. His most recent efforts have been devoted to the formulation of products in four areas:
1. Pain—in which he draws from his 30+ years of knowledge and experience.
a. Livinity Relief Capsules
b. Livinity Relief Gel
2. Diabetes—a major problem so extensive that it has the potential to bankrupt national health care systems.
c. DermaLiv Extreme Body Care
3. Weight Management—a condition so common that it affects 2/3 of Americans.
a. LivinSlim Plus Capsules
4. Anti-aging—utilizing the latest scientific research to “turn back the clock” and prevent or retard the diseases commonly seen with aging.
To date, Dr. Harris has been granted three US patents—No More Snorzzz, BREATHEese, and GlucoLiv. The pain products are currently under patent pending status.
Presently, Dr. Harris continues an active research and development program designed to improve the existing products and create new products to effectively help and extend our lives.
Dr. Harris has appeared on over 2,000 local and network radio shows and continues to be one of the most popular and sought-after radio guests. Over the past five years, he has also appeared on over 75 television shows throughout the country.
During the past several years as Medical Director of Livinity, Dr. Harris has formulated unique products that are exclusive to Livinity. As a result, Livinity now has the finest product line of any network marketing company in the country. He has provided thousands of on-line consultations to Livinity members and their families, customers and relatives. This service has made Livinity stand out, as no other network marketing company can boast a similar program.
Dr. Harris has continued to teach under the auspices of Livinity, appearing at all of the annual meetings, Mind-Body Seminars, conference calls and other events. In the course of these discussions, Dr. Harris teaches about health challenges, products and the most important ingredients. Dr. Harris’ goal is to educate everyone in Livinity about the most commonly seen health problems and the safest and best approach to treating them. However, his main passion is to prevent the major health problems from occurring and help Livinity members live longer, live healthier and maintain the optimal quality of life.
