Infuza, Unani medicine for colds and influenza, one of a selection of drugs and related material from India, 1975-1980.

This imported Unani Tibb medicine is advertised as a treatment for common and ‘epidemic’ flu. It is printed in English and Urdu. It is possibly aimed at the immigrant Asian community and Westerners. One teaspoon mixed in half a cup of warm water was taken before bedtime. Unani Tibb is a medical tradition. It is similar to Ayurveda, a medical tradition with roots in the Indian subcontinent.
