A primitive approach to Ou MC decrescendo phenomenon with a hands-on therapy—The relation between human bilateral symmetry and disease
Abstract: The Ou MC decrescendo phenomenon (OuDP) involves the placing of the contralateral hand of the examiner on the acute abdomen of female patients (Ou MC manipulation), which results in an alleviation of pain [1]. Two front-end observations showed that placement of the contralateral hand on the acute abdomen of women alleviated pain (78 of 81 women or 96.3%), while placement of the ipsilateral hand did not (0 of 39 women or 0%). This method named as Ou MC handing remedy (HR) was used to observe the immediate and cumulative effects of OuDP on 38 cases, of which 27 were self-administered and 11 were administered by the therapist. The mean age of the patients was 55.8 years (standard deviation, 22.9 years). Five minutes after initial self-administered HR, there was pain alleviation in 14 cases and symptoms or signs beyond pain improved for another 6 cases while 7 cases unevaluated. Final results showed 9 cured, 5 with partial remission and the remaining 13 with complete remission. Five minutes after initial therapist-administered HR, pain alleviation was found with 10 cases while 1 case unevaluated. The final results showed 7 cases cured, 2 with partial remission, and 2 with complete remission. The resolution of non-infectious conditions (23/ 38) with OuDP is consistent with the restoration of normal tissue function, which seems to contribute to pain alleviation and defense against infections and tumors. Interestingly, the OuDP is capable of being invoked by either the patient or the therapist. These findings warrant further investigation.
