Dr. Pimentel Warns Patients That an Overgrowth of Bacteria Poses Potential Chronic Health Risks

SIBO (Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth) Now Confirmed as Cause of Many Chronic Health Conditions

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 1, 2007 -- According to Dr. Mark Pimentel (Dr. SIBO), author of the best-selling book, "A New IBS Solution," SIBO (Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth) is now linked to many chronic health conditions.

Dr. Mark Pimentel, the director of the Gastrointestinal Motility Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, states that while SIBO is a known cause of IBS, it is also now shown to be a possible cause of many other serious, chronic health conditions. In addition to Irritable Bowel Syndrome, some of the other conditions linked to SIBO include: Fibromyalgia, Interstitial Cystitis, Fatigue, Hypoglycemia, and Gynecological problems.

Dr. Pimentel describes in his new book, "A New IBS Solution," that there is a tremendous overlap between IBS and Fibromyalgia. "This correlation led us to investigate this link further. We decided to test Fibromyalgia patients to confirm that they, too, had this overgrowth, and tests established that a bacteria overgrowth was, indeed, present."

Additionally, Dr. Pimentel concluded based on similar studies that other common conditions are also caused by the presence of an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine.

Dr. Pimentel has been studying the complexities of IBS and SIBO for over a decade and now offers new, desperately sought-after, hope for the millions suffering. Dr. Pimentel's Revolutionary new treatment, dubbed "The Cedars-Sinai Protocol," is currently available throughout the country.

Dr. Mark Pimentel is available for interviews to share his information about SIBO, his treatment protocol, and chronic health conditions.
