LYNN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Commonwealth Laboratories, Inc. and Health Point Press; publisher of “A New IBS Solution” by Dr. Mark Pimentel, are proud to announce their new partnership which will work to create and maintain multiple educational platforms to promote and provide information on Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO).
Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO) is a condition in which abnormally large numbers of bacteria, 100,000 bacteria per ml of fluid or more, are present in the small intestine. In SIBO, the form of bacteria in the small intestine is much more indicative of the bacteria of the colon and not the small intestine.
In 2006; Health Point Press, a California-based company, published a book by Dr. Mark Pimentel, Director of the GI Motility Unit at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, CA. The book outlines SIBO and, most importantly, the direct correlation it has to Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Furthermore, it explains a specific protocol for disburdening patients of their discomfort and leading them back toward a higher quality of life.
Commonwealth Laboratories, Inc. is referenced throughout the book as the recommended testing laboratory to help aid in the diagnosis of SIBO. Together, Commonwealth Laboratories, Inc. and Health Point Press look forward to providing continuous education on SIBO and its affects.
