Happy Colon Foods is changing the way patients prep for colonoscopies and working to make it a better experience overall.
SALEM, Ore. (PRWEB) January 21, 2021
Happy Colon Foods announces its availability in Salem, Oregon through a new, ongoing partnership with Salem Gastro. 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 prepare for a colonoscopy by eating small meals and snacks of low-residue comfort foods throughout the day and drinking 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.
“Happy Colon Foods, and low-residue diets in general, provide a better, safer and more tolerable alternative for bowel prep for colonoscopy,” Dr. Nabil Choueiri, Board Certified Gastroenterologist and Medical Director at Salem Gastro. "Recent studies showed no difference in quality between a low-residue diet and liquid only preps. The patients seem to like it more. I highly recommend it!”
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.
“Colonoscopies save lives, but too many people postpone or do not schedule them, due to the dread and fear associated with the process,” says Dr. Jeff D. Scott, Board Certified Gastroenterologist and creator of Happy Colon Foods. “This is the main reason I was inspired to develop Happy Colon Foods – to change the way patients perceive getting a colonoscopy and make it easier for them. We are so pleased to have partnered with Salem Gastro to offer a new option available to their patients when prepping for a colonoscopy.”
With this new partnership, patients at Salem Gastro will now have the opportunity to choose Happy Colon Foods when they need to prep for a colonoscopy.
“Happy Colon Foods is a great alternative to standard bowel preps used for colonoscopy,” says Dr. Falguny Bhavan, Board Certified Gastroenterologist at Salem Gastro. “We are so happy to offer this product backed by science and quality ingredients to our patients.”
