How to Treat A Cold

by Dr. Ni Haixia at Hantang College of T.C.M., Florida

Cold is a serious issue. The U.S. federal government has spent numerous dollars and invested countless resources in medical research. But still, no cure has been found for a single disease, not even the simple cold.

The cold/flu vaccine was created to prevaricate the public from the poor result, claiming to prevent colds/flu. In fact, many still caught a cold despite the shot, and some even died after the injection of vaccines.

People continue to get colds after the vaccination. The so-called cold vaccine is simply a big scam.

On the other hand, T.C.M. has been curing colds since about 2,000 years ago. As long as one could study the ‘Treatise on Febrile Diseases‘ well, you can quickly treat a cold.

It was mentioned in the ‘Inner Canon of Yellow Emperor‘- The beginning of all diseases arises from the wind, which is the cold’s primary cause.

So the T.C.M. classic stated that if colds could be cured, all other ailments would be nipped in the bud.

This is similar to the W.M. theory that the human immune system could help fight cancer. However, W.M. has yet to propose any method to strengthen immunity.

On the contrary, many W.M. treatments would harm the immune system, such as antibiotics, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy.

The weaker the immunity, the more likely it is to catch a cold, and the more antibiotics prescribed. With such a vicious cycle, the human life span would be shortened for sure.

In T.C.M., the cold is divided into three stages. The first is the Taiyang syndrome, where the illness still stays on the human body’s surface. Here we should use drugs for relieving the Exterior Disorder, i.e., diaphoretic.

The second is the Shaoyang syndrome, where viruses stay in the endocrine or lymphatic system. We would use the reconciliatory drug that can expel the viruses via the urine.

The third is the Yangming syndrome, where viruses stay in the large and small intestines and cause constipation. We would use a cathartic prescription at this time to remove viruses from the feces.

These logical rules of treatment from above were established 2,000 years ago.

I often mention to my patients that if a doctor can’t even cure a simple cold, how could he cure cancer? It’s like a contractor who cannot even pain a wall; how could you expect him to build a whole house?
