Cold, another important pathogenic factor with yin quality, is divided into external and internal cold.
External cold, caused by external exposure to cold (winter, air conditioning), results in qi and blood stagnation, and manifests itself, for example, in fixed, cold-dependent pain. Internal cold, caused by the excessive consumption of cold foods or a deep penetration of external cold, results in qi and blood stagnation and a weakening of the zang organs.
