"A New IBS Solution" offers a revolutionary look at the way Irritable Bowel Syndrome is currently being treated. Today, over 60 million people of all ages across the country are suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), the most chronic common medical condition, which is characterized by abdominal pain, bloating, and altered bowel habits. But because patients may find it difficult to discuss their problems with their physicians, they often suffer in silence, or worse, "learn to live with it."

This book merits your attention. It could likely explain the cause for your symptoms. The purpose for writing this book was to declare a unifying hypothesis for the cause of IBS. Numerous research studies peformed by Dr. Pimentel, and duplicated by many centers world-wide, point to an overgrowth of bacteria as being the missing link which explains the symptoms felt by 10-20% of the population. He does an admirable job at explaining the background for this new theory, along with treatment options. After reading this book you are more than likely going to want to discuss its findings with your own physician. --Jeffrey Robert, Founder IBS Support Group
