In ancient Chinese fairy tales, Shennong, who was known as the forefather of Chinese agriculture, tasted hundreds of herbs in order to understand the medicinal properties of them. Today, traditional Chinese medicine is still playing a significant role and has formed a systematic discipline. The same herbal medicine has different effects depending on the place of origin. On the journey, Kevin found that Chinese medicine was no longer mythical. It seems as if all his experiences in the journey are inseparable from traditional Chinese medicine. It’s in the food you can't live without, the clothes you wear every day such as sachets and dyes, and it’s also in decorative paintings. It brings us a great enjoyment. Traditional Chinese medicine has been a part of life and it’s everywhere in our daily life. As for Kevin, this is just the beginning of his discoveries.
