He says that most people's colds in the autumn and winter are caused by the cold weather. But a cold can also be caused by excessive heat, or weak yin factor or indigestion.

To treat the cold caused by cold weather, doctors need to use medicines to dispel the cold wind and open up the surface of the body. One example is Ganmao Chongji, a granule medicine to be taken after being mixed with boiling water.

Using vinegar smoke can help people with a weak yin factor prevent getting flu, not because vinegar kills bacteria but because vinegar is believed to help strengthen people's yin factor.

Doctor Yang also advises people to drink tea made of Maidong (dwarf lilyturf), chrysanthemum, and honeysuckle to prevent flu. To prevent an ordinary cold caused by cold weather, drink boiled water with black sugar and raw ginger slices, or boiled water with the white part of a spring onion along with its roots.
