the episode opens, Dr. Wiley responds to a desperate
call from a construction site. Construction workers
are complaining about arm and shoulder pain from stud
work they're doing. “Doc, can you help us?” Donning
his hard hat and tool belt – with a short pause to
wink to the audience – Doc jumps in a cab and heads
over to the site. En route, the driver, another nuclear
physicist from Pakistan, of course, complains about
lower back pain from all the driving. “My back is
killing me, Doc. What can I do?”
to help everyone, Dr. Wiley shows him a series of
quick exercises which, by working the opposite muscles,
can relieve his pain. Even better, he can do these
in a minute at a red light so he won't miss his next
call. Before he exits the cab, the Doc suggests some
things the driver can do at home for more long term
relief. “Thanks, Doc. I feel better already!”
the construction site, we're in for some laughs and
some good advice as Dr. Wiley helps the crew with
their ailments, and shows them some things they can
do at home if they have partners, also. Of course,
he gets a few odd looks and laughs as he role plays
‘the partner' and helps demonstrate the cures. Best
part: no drugs or surgery needed.
up: some quick pop-up facts and remedies that anyone
can use. Did you know that a pregnant woman can end
her nausea in minutes by sucking on a common root?
for those times where Dr. Wiley doesn't have a quick
answer or wants to do some investigating, a few regular,
colorful health experts will be brought in to assist.
And when those special demonstrations are
needed, we've got the Doc's eclectic Heal-O-Lab, a
cross between a CSI set, a medical office and Dr.
Frankenstein's shop. It's an ideal venue to illustrate
the modern technique of “cupping” for example, which
does the same thing leeches used to do in medieval
times – and gives great results! Still, cupping
looks pretty painful. After seeing a shot of
Dr. Wiley covered with REAL leeches, though, cupping
therapy clearly looks like the better choice.
we're back with Dr. Wiley who has taken to the streets
to help passerby's. Queried with what folk remedies
and here-say cures work, Dr. Wiley provides answers
and advice, and follows that with some highlights
from the next week's episode. Stay tuned!
