Holiday Cheer or Holiday Blues? When Living With Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), the Holiday Season Is No Picnic

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 14, 2006 -- According to Dr. Mark Pimentel, author of "A New IBS Solution," the Holiday Season can be a particularly challenging time for people suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Dr. Mark Pimentel, the director of the Gastrointestinal Motility Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, states that while stress is not the cause of IBS, it certainly can exacerbate this condition.

As he discusses in his new book, "A New IBS Solution," Dr. Pimentel states that he believes that the root cause of IBS is actually the presence of an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine.

Dr. Pimentel has been studying the complexities of IBS 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.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is the most common chronic medical condition in the United States and affects people of all ages. Until recently many people have had to suffer in silence or "learn to live with it," because there has been no known cure or real treatment.

With symptoms of abdominal pain, bloating and altered bowel habits, IBS is more than just embarrassing and uncomfortable to discuss. It severely alters people's lives. For many people, IBS can be disabling enough to prevent them from working, traveling, and even socializing or having an intimate relationship.

Chances are if you do not personally suffer from IBS, you know someone who does. The time has come to tackle this disease, and "A New IBS Solution" explains how to do just that.

Dr. Mark Pimentel is available for interviews to share his information about the treatment protocol and causes of IBS.
