Dr. Mark Pimentel's IBS Protocol Gaining More Acceptance Among Physicians and Patients

In His New Book "A New IBS Solution" He Explains to Readers the "Root Cause" for Most Cases of Irritable Bowel Syndrome

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 15, 2006 -- Today more physicians and patients are accepting Dr. Mark Pimentel's Protocol for Treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

IBS is the most common chronic medical condition in the United States; it affects people of all ages. Until recently many people have had to "learn to live with it" because there has been no known cure. For many people the pain and uncertainty of bowel function can be disabling enough to prevent them from working, traveling, and even socializing or having an intimate relationship.

For years, stress has been thought to be the main cause of gastrointestinal disorders, so most treatments have focused on stress reduction; but IBS patients still have symptoms even when not under stress. In addition, most of the current remedies are meant to treat IBS symptoms, but offer little relief and no cure. In Dr Mark Pimentel's new book "A New IBS Solution: Bacteria -- The Missing Link in Treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome" offers people the cure they have been so desperately searching for.

Dr. Mark Pimentel provides readers with the "missing link" -- bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine -- and sets forth a treatment protocol adopted by such renowned institutions as Cedars-Sinai Medical Center that will not only resolve IBS symptoms, but also prevent them from coming back. Dr Pimentel's approach reflects the research showing bacteria's link to other gastrointestinal disorders; Dr. Barry Marshall won the 2005 Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovering the role of bacteria (Helicobacter pylori) in causing peptic ulcers and even gastric cancers.

Dr. Mark Pimentel is available for interviews to share his information and remove the stigma associated with IBS.
