Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a broad range of medicine practices sharing common concepts which have been developed in China and are based on a tradition of more than 2,000 years, including various forms of herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage, and dietary therapy. TCM focuses on strengthening the body's defenses and enhancing its capacity for healing and to maintain health.
1. Process of using herbal medicine:
Patients need to see a doctor first. Then doctor will give him the prescription of herbal combination for one week use. Next, patients go to get the amount of herb in pharmacy. Take it back home, boil them in a clay pot more than 2 hours and extract them into a drink. Or, they can purchase the extraction service in the hospital and take 14 medicine extraction pouches back home. And consume that 2 times a day.
2013 there are more than 430 million patients go to see doctors of TCM hospitals in China. In people's mind, TCM is one part of the traditional Chinese culture. People have the same view of TCM for thousands of years.
However, this is not the excuess of limiting us of developing and improving this precious traditional industry.
3. Easy forwarding life style:
More and more patients rather taking risks of trusting hospitals to extract herb than using more than 3 hours a day to extract herb at home. In this modern society, people enjoy the easy life styles and would like to pay for all conveniences.
Research shows that in summer more than 80% patients pay extracting medicine in hospital, in winter around 60%. Based on this, we can easily understand how important is the packagings design of pouches affect TCM users.
4. People's altitude towards TCM:
In a large group of modern citizens, who have high education, traditional Chinese medicine have bias of TCM as Superstition. Thus most of them would like to use either capsules and pills, or get more exercise than go to see a doctor. To educate the millennial that TCM has high efficacy and is trustworthy is the responsibility of everyone in the Traditional Chinese Medicine industry.

Patients have the choice to choose the extracting service from hospital. However, the extracting quality is lower than the home-made ones. On the other hand, in general, it takes more than 5 hours for patients waiting for their herbal extractions.
3.Current Messy & Lack of Information Packaging System;
What hospital offers normally is a big plastic bag with a bunch of messy pouches, which lacked important information on how to take the medicine correctly.
4.Drink Bitter Herb Medicine Twice Everyday;
Each morning and night, patients have to pour the bitter medicine into a bowl and drink it. The smells and tastes is really terrible. From my own perspective, I never finished my herbal medicine, which is the reason why it always took me longer time to cure. These horrible senses add abhorrent feelings to the overall remedy.
