Control reflux, long-term1

Reflux sufferers, meet LINX® — a revolutionary treatment for reflux. It’s a simple device with life-changing potential. LINX is intended for patients (over the age of 18) diagnosed with Gastroesophageal Refllux Disease (GORD) as defined by abnormal pH testing, and who are seeking an alternative to continuous acid suppression therapy. Continue on to learn more about this small device and its results.

About LINX

Reflux Barrier — One of the causes of Reflux is a weak muscle in your oesophagus called the Lower Oesophageal Sphincter (LOS). The LOS is your body's Reflux Barrier. Normally your reflux barried acts like a one-way valve, allowing food and liquid to pass into the stomach, but preventing stomach contents from flowing back into the oesophagus. In people with reflux, the Reflux Barrier allows harmful acid and bile to flow back into the oesophagus.
Stomach Acid — Stomach acid plays an important role to break down food into molecules your body can absorb. When acid leaves your stomach, it's toxic and will wreak havoc on your oesophagus, lungs and throat, causing painful symptoms and leading to serious complications.

Oesophagus — Insult, then injury over and over again. When stomach acid rises upward, it wears away the lining of the oesophagus, causing irritation, inflammation and painful symptoms.
Throat — Forever froggy? Reflux takes a toll on your throat, causing hoarseness, dry cough, change in voice, difficulty swallowing and chronic soreness.
Lungs — Stomach acid can also enter the lungs. Once there, it can cause coughing, wheezing, bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma and other breathing issues.

LINX — LINX is a small, flexible ring of magnets that opens to allow food and liquid down, then closes to prevent stomach contents from moving up. Simple as that.
