    Have IBS or symptoms of ?? YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK

    If you have IBS or symptoms of Ibs and are trying to "just live with it" or have had a doc tell you it's due to stress "Your blood tests show nothing abnormal" then you MUST read this book. Dr. Pimentel pionerred research into the CAUSE of IBS and found Most cases are due to SIBO ( small intestinal bacterial overgrowth ).The majority of doctors that try to dignose IBS DO NOT use a simple test to show if SIBO is present..it's called a Breath Test and measures the amount of Methane and or Hydrogen gases present in the small intestines.High amounts of these gases mean SIBO. There is a special mchine to measure these samples and the book gives you a web site to go to to find a doc in your area that has the equipment.The great news is that SIBO can be treated with 2 antibiotics and the results are often complete remission or great improvement in symptoms.Dr.Pimentel goes into great detail about the tests and treatment in language that the average person can undferstand.He also gives sample menu's and a list of the good and no no foods.After years of suffering I followed the advice...found a doc..got the tests..and am currently on the antibiotis. Although I have 2 more weeks of therapy to go I have noticed a Great Improvement in my symptoms. Read this book and you could be on your way to a happier and healthy life.If you have no symptoms but have a family member or friend with symptoms tell them to get this book or give it to them as a gift that they will never forget.This is a must read for IBS people.

    This is the real cure!

    I read this book while Dr. Pimental was my treating physician. I did everything he said to do. I was one of the few who had to work a bit harder but after 53 years of suffering I have been PAIN FREE for 18 months. This is particularly terrific because I was told by every other doctor I ever saw that it was because I was 'high strung'! The book is an easy read, and it works.

    A New IBS Solution: Bacteria-the Missing Link in Treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome

    I just finished reading Dr. Pimentel's new book, 'A New IBS Solution,' and was very excited to learn of his new protocol and the new information he offers about the cause of IBS. It was not too overly technical and easy to understand for the non-doctor. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for relief from IBS or who has friends/family with this condition.

    This well written and accessible book by Dr. Mark Pimentel is both informative and easy to understand. Dr. Pimentel's innovative and cutting edge approach to IBS gives hope to millions of people world-wide suffering with this miserable condition. I would highly recommend his book for those suffering with IBS and for those supporting friends and loved ones with IBS.

    A New IBS Solution: Bacteria-the Missing Link in Treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome

    After reading Dr. Pimentel's new book, A New IBS Solution it is clear he is one of only a few Gastroenterologists who really understands this condition. Most IBS Sufferers have realized long ago that all there symptoms were note all being caused by 'Stress' ' or that it wasn't 'all in their head' According to Dr. Pimentel its all in your Small Intestines. Having an overgrowth of Bacteria is the 'root cause' for most IBS Cases. I found his book very easy to read, I liked that he discusses the benefits of supplements, diet,and the history of how IBS has been treated. I would recommend his book to anyone who has IBS or know's someone who does! Last year Dr. Barrry Marshall won the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his work showing the connection between bacteria and Peptic Uclers. Dr. Pimentel would get my vote in a minute!
