Pilot Study On Managing Opioid Addiction

IRB-Approved Pilot Study Shows Efficacy in Reducing Withdrawal Symptoms

Springfield, MO – Oct. 29, 2019 – Shealy-Sorin Wellness announces the conclusion of a
12-month IRB-approved pilot study among a small prison population to test the use of the
Gamma PEMF Therapy device on patients with opioid addiction.

Participants were required to wear the Gamma PEMF Therapy device for at least one hour per
day for a period of 12 months. Participants maintained initial and weekly logs regarding their
symptoms. These weekly scores, on a 0-10 scale, were segmented into 3-month increments. All
subjects reported a marked decrease in common withdrawal symptoms, including opioid
cravings, night sweats, and nightmares.

The researchers demonstrated significant benefits for patients, including:
● Reduction in Opioid Craving Occurrence (98.2% reduction from baseline)
● Reduction in Nightmare Occurrence (65.4% reduction from baseline)
● Reduction in Night Sweat Occurrence (85% reduction from baseline)

Continued monitoring since completion of trial (February, 2019) shows all 10 subjects remain
free of opioids. Additionally, all subjects remain free from incarceration and have rejoined the

Gamma PEMF therapy is a safe and non-invasive treatment. Participants in the pilot program
will continue to be monitored for an additional year after completing the program. Though
further research is needed, this study demonstrates statistically-significant benefits for opioid
treatment with Gamma PEMF Therapy. Further studies are currently being undertaken using

Gamma PEMF Therapy to treat both Chronic Pain and Chronic Disease.

Author Marc Berlin borrows from media headlines to masterfully weave a disturbing tale of psychological suspense.

Plymouth, Mass., October 11, 2019 — Indie book publisher Black Rose Writing has published ODDBALL IN 3G, a novel that’s not only entertaining but also highly relevant, involving both the opioid and chronic anxiety epidemics plaguing America.

Written by Marc Berlin, the book deftly mixes suspense with consistent doses of wry humor.

Robert Krieger’s life is quickly falling apart. He’s lost his job, his girlfriend has dumped him, and his elderly mother is pestering him about fixing her leaky roof. As a result, Robert’s developed GAD, aka generalized anxiety disorder. Making things much worse, he’s soon being threatened by an inner-city drug ring who believes he has a bunch of their cash. Normally a shy loner, Robert must soon resort to the same tactics the drug ring employs—extreme violence.

“I wanted to show how a perfect storm of internal and external crises can make otherwise shy young men become tomorrow’s news headlines,” Berlin explains.

OnlineBookClub.org says, “Right from the start, Berlin’s novel is a great read. Recommended to both crime and movie buffs, especially those who enjoy a character-driven story with a bang-up ending.”

ODDBALL IN 3G is available at Amazon.com, as well as the Barnes and Noble, Foyles and Target websites.
