1. Description of Our Community
Taipei Municipal Yongle Elementary School is located on the inside of Dadao-Cheng of Danshui front, is an elementary school of old community. Business was very booming here because the Dan-Shuei River facilitated transportation next to Dadao-Cheng in early days.
Because Chinese herbal medicine need to be imported from different habitats, and Di-Hua Street’s shipping is convenient, more and more Chinese herbal medicine stores chose to manage their stores here.
Therefore, Di-Hua Street has formed special gathering in Chinese herbal medicine industry culture.
2. Summary of Our Project
Chinese herbal medicine industry has existed for a long time, is one of unique Taiwan cultures. Chinese herbal medicine emphasizes adjusting physical condition from the inside out slowly, although short-term effect was not significant, but the treatment outcome is more durable.
Recently the doctor clinic is more universal, and the doctors can pay by National Health Insurance, efficacy of medicine more quick, so the Chinese medicine declines gradually.
Facing the change, traditional Chinese herbal medicine industry will put more innovative elements in Chinese herbal medicine, to make Chinese herbal medicine culture more universal and younger.
