Lung Phlegm Cold is a syndrome in Chinese medicine. That means it describes one of the ways people using Chinese medicine describe how your lungs behave when ill. (This syndrome is also known as ‘Cold and Phlegm in the Lungs’.)
As an analogy, think of what happens when you pour cold water onto a fire. If the fire is strong and has enough fuel and oxygen, you’ll get steam. If the fire is small and weak, you’ll put it out!
If Lung Phlegm Cold persists, it can itself aggravate or cause other conditions like Stomach and Spleen deficiency. It can, surprisingly, in old people block things up so much that they develop Lung Dryness.
When Phlegm accumulates, it can produce or worsen Blood Stasis. However, usually this happens only to patients whose energy is already low, perhaps from other diseases, or because they are old.
