Then, there is the whole cooking process which involves waiting 30 minutes after each meal then adding water and boiling/simmering the concoction for 30 minutes before drinking.  This process must be repeated (consistently) 3 times per day.

In fact, the cooking process is so tedious that they make a dedicated “Chinese medicine” appliance for making this routine chore a little more convenient.

Finally, there’s the most important part: drinking it!

Cheers!   Ganbei!
