Cause

 

 

Large Intestine Cold

 

  • over-consumption of cold and raw foods
  • living in a cold environment

 

In traditional Chinese medicine “cold in the Large Intestine” is caused by over-consumption of “cold foods”. Such are foods consumed straight out of the refrigerator, ice cream, ice-drinks, and all raw foods, including fruits and vegetables.

Cold may also accumulate in the intestines if the abdomen is frequently exposed to cold temperature.


If you want to learn more about the Large Intestine and its functions from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine go to "The Large Intestine in Chinese medicine" in the Physiology chapter.

 

Symptoms

 

  • loose stools
  • watery stools
  • diarrhea
  • lower abdominal pain
  • cold sensation in the abdomen

 

Since there is no warmth/energy to consolidate the stools there will be loose, watery stools and diarrhea. As the cold is constrictive in nature it causes pain thus there is lower abdominal pain. There is cold sensation in the abdomen, the limbs are cold, and there is an overall feeling of cold.
