Happy Colon Foods is changing the way patients prep for colonoscopies and working to make it a better experience overall.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (PRWEB) April 20, 2021
Happy Colon Foods announces its availability in Kansas City, MO through a new, ongoing partnership with Consultants in Gastroenterology, a division of Digestive Health Specialists. Happy Colon Foods is the only standardized kit of low-residue foods for use when prepping for a colonoscopy.
Happy Colon Foods was created and developed by Board Certified Gastroenterologist, Jeff D. Scott, M.D. With this method, patients eat small meals and snacks of low-residue comfort foods throughout the day, and drink water blended with tasteless laxatives and flavored drink mixes each time they eat. Studies show that a low-residue diet, which is very easy for the body to process, will yield equal or better colonoscopy prep results than liquid preps. It also helps the body cleanse itself without the unintended side effects of bloating, cramping, nausea, and vomiting that often accompany traditional prep methods.
“We are very excited to offer patients Happy Colon Foods,” says Dr. Tom Shireman, Board Certified Gastroenterologist at Digestive Health Specialists. “Too many screening colonoscopies were postponed last year and we hope the opportunity to eat and avoid many of the unwanted side effects accompanied with prep will motivate patients to schedule these important procedures.”
Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men and in women in the U.S., yet it is one of the few cancers that is largely preventable with screening. Each year, over 10 million people in the U.S. do not get screened because of the ‘dreaded’ prep and its unpleasant side effects – not the procedure. With a 98% rate of successful preps and demonstrated average Boston Bowel Prep Score of 8, Happy Colon Foods is changing the way patients prep for colonoscopies and working to make it a better experience overall.
Happy Colon Foods can be used by anyone preparing for a colonoscopy, and is particularly beneficial for patients who struggle with, or cannot go without eating, such as aging patients and diabetics.
“I'm delighted to work with the esteemed gastroenterologists at Digestive Health Specialists, to provide their patients with a different option that will help reduce and prevent the dread and fear of prepping that causes too many patients to postpone, or not schedule colonoscopies,” says Dr. Jeff D. Scott, Board Certified Gastroenterologist and creator of Happy Colon Foods. “In creating Happy Colon Foods, my goal is to have a major, positive impact on making it easier to get ready for a colonoscopy, and to change how patients view the process in the future.”
With this new partnership, patients at Digestive Health Specialists will now have the opportunity to choose Happy Colon Foods when they need to prep for a colonoscopy.
