Joshanda, herbal medicine, Pakistan, 2004-2005

Joshanda is a popular medicine recommended by practitioners of Unani Tibb to treat flu, common colds, bronchitis and coughs, and to help ease congestion in the chest. Unani Tibb is an Islamic medical tradition practised mostly in Pakistan, India and other parts of Asia. Ideas of health are based on balance within the body and with the environment. Joshanda is a selection of dried herbs that are boiled in a cup of hot water, strained and drunk first thing in the morning and last thing at night. The mixture can be sweetened with honey to make it easier to swallow. The preparation was made by Hamdard (Wakf) Laboratories, a mass producer of Unani Tibb medicines.
