Regina Fabiola del Belgio si sottopone ad intervento sotto sedazione ipnotica


La Regina Fabiola, ricoverata l’8 gennaio 2009 presso l’Ospedale Universitario di Liegi, è stata sottoposta ad un intervento chirurgico, presumibilmente alla tiroide (ma il riserbo sulla vicenda induce a cautela), durante il quale è stata praticata ipnosedazione in luogo dell’anestesia generale, controindicata per i rischi dovuti all’età della paziente, ottantenne. La dimissione è avvenuta due giorni dopo, senza complicanze.

Il Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Liège, molto conosciuto nel settore per l’adozione dell’ipnosi come tecnica complementare in anestesia e rianimazione, vanta ad oggi più di 5100 interventi chirurgici su pazienti che hanno ricevuto l’ipnosi come strumento ausiliario, in associazione ad anestesia locale e leggera sedazione farmacologica.

Mairie-Elisabeth Faymonville, che dirige il team di chirurghi belgi, ha pubblicato diversi lavori sugli aspetti neurofisiologici degli stati di trance, in particolar modo di quelli correlati all’analgesia ipnotica, ed è nota anche grazie ai suoi studi circa gli effetti dell’ipnosi nella prognosi post-operatoria: tra i pazienti sottoposti ad interventi alla tiroide, rientravano al lavoro dopo una media di 15 giorni quelli che avevano ricevuto ipnosedazione, mentre chi era stato sottoposto alle procedure standard di anestesia totale tornava alla propria attività in media 28 giorni dopo l’operazione. Oltre a confermarsi come metodo efficace dal punto di vista economico, i pazienti dicono che si tratta di “un’esperienza molto speciale” riporta la Faymonville, che prosegue: “adesso seguiamo con questa tecnica persone provenienti da tutto il mondo”.

I medici e gli psicologi italiani, testimoni della ritrosia con cui le tecniche ipnotiche vengono spesso accolte dalla medicina ufficiale, non si demoralizzino: l’ipnosi è un fenomeno “carsico”. Dopo essere stata bandita dalla chirurgia nel 1845 in seguito all’introduzione dell’etere, infatti, è stata riabilitata dall’American Medical Association nel 1958, che l’ha inclusa nel novero delle pratiche mediche, dentistiche e chirurgiche. Chissà che con un po’ di pazienza e di onesto lavoro anche l’Italia - culla di cultura e di sapere da sempre – non riesca a riconoscere questa sua negletta prole. Certo, il regale precedente di Fabiola non nuocerà allo scopo.

Influenza di ipnosi e tecniche di rilassamento sul sistema immunitario

Nell’articolo di review pubblicato sul numero di Giugno 2008 dell’International Journal of Neuroscience, il Dr. E.C. Trakhtenberg dell’Istituto di Psicologia Transpersonale di Palo Alto riporta i dati di numerose ricerche che hanno studiato il legame esistente tra le tecniche di immaginazione guidata ed i parametri del sistema immunitario. Di particolare interesse i dati circa gli effetti dell’immaginazione guidata:
- Nel ridurre lo stress e aumentare la risposta immunitaria;
- Nell’influenzare selettivamente i globuli bianchi, i neutrofili e i linfociti;
- Nella diminuzione della conta dei globuli bianchi nelle fasi iniziali di immaginazione guidata e rilassamento, dovuta a fluttuazioni di produzione o marginazione.
Un precedente lavoro di review del 2002 del Dr. J. Gruzelier forniva evidenze circa la capacità delle tecniche di rilassamento e di immaginazione guidata nel controllo immunitario e nell’incremento dello stato dell’umore e del benessere globale. Due studi dell’autore evidenziavano l’efficacia di sessioni di ipnosi espressamente rivolte al sistema immunitario: tale tecnica permetterebbe di influenzare positivamente la funzione immunitaria, l’umore e, ancora più importante, il numero di infezioni virali nella stagione invernale. Un terzo studio dell’autore riguardava una popolazione universitaria portatrice di Herpes Simplex virus-2 (HSV-2): sei settimane di training avevano dimezzato la ricorrenza dell’espressione del virus e ridotto i livelli di depressione e ansia. Inoltre, i parametri biochimici evidenziavano un aumento delle funzioni immunitarie, in particolare delle cellule natural killer.

Violenza sessuale e ipnosi: i media ci aiutano a capire?

Recentemente, l’accusa di violenza carnale ed atti di libidine a danno di pazienti affette da disturbi alimentari, riconosciuta dalla sentenza della Corte d’Appello, che ha comminato 5 anni e mezzo di reclusione al Prof. Aldo Antonino Sodaro, porta in primo piano un tema che ci sta molto a cuore. La notizia, non tanto nel merito della sentenza e dell’accertamento dei fatti, quanto nel metodo con cui viene diffusa dai principali organi di informazione, induce ad un gran numero di mistificazioni: sia i titoli della televisione (“Con l’ipnosi abusava delle pazienti”), che dei quotidiani (“Re dell’ipnosi violentava le anoressiche”) danno per assodata la natura intrinsecamente coercitiva dell’ipnosi, alimentando le tinte fosche con cui è gia ampiamente rappresentata nell’immaginario collettivo, e attribuiscono a chi la pratichi un potere irresistibile in grado di piegare le volontà di pazienti completamente succubi. I professionisti che praticano quotidianamente l’ipnosi per scopi terapeutici (in medicina come in psicoterapia) sanno che le cose stanno diversamente; ciò che duole loro constatare è la facilità con cui i media cedano alle sirene del sensazionalismo, trasformando un argomento tanto serio e spinoso in una faceta vignetta di malcostume.
Nel corso della puntata televisiva Mi Manda RaiTre del 07/11/2008, viene ospitata una delle vittime costituitesi parte civile contro i reati del Prof. Sodaro, che attraverso un racconto dettagliato e drammatico ricostruisce i fatti oggetto del processo. Appena una manciata di minuti sono dedicati dal conduttore al Prof. Guglielmo Gulotta, cui è data occasione di ristabilire un qualche accenno di verità riabilitando la pratica dell’ipnosi al rango di disciplina scientifica. A nostro parere, lo spazio dedicato a questo approfondimento non è stato sufficiente a sgonfiare il clima di condanna e indignazione (alimentati invece dai titoli in sovrimpressione: “Con l’ipnosi abusava della pazienti”) che, se avranno calamitato l’attenzione di molti telespettatori, sicuramente non hanno permesso loro di farsi un’opinione informata della problema.
Nell’articolo de La Repubblica del 26/10/2008, a titolo “Re dell’ipnosi violentava le anoressiche” tale contraddittorio non è presente, per quanto sia rintracciabile un timido tentativo di ristabilire in seconda battuta una prospettiva più equilibrata quando il giornalista cita gli atti del processo: il Prof. Sodaro avrebbe commesso i reati sulle pazienti in virtù della loro “incapacità di resistergli a causa delle loro condizioni di inferiorità psichica, da lui stesso aggravate mediante suggestione ipnotica» o, comunque «adottando una condotta insidiosa e fraudolenta (simulazione di atti terapeutici) o improvvisa, tale da non rendere possibile un’adeguata difesa». Solo quest’ultima concessione pare restituire quelle caratteristiche di serietà e responsabilità di cui gli organi di informazione del terzo millennio dovrebbero dotarsi approcciandosi ad argomenti tanto complessi e delicati. E’ opinione di chi scrive che questo dovrebbe valere tanto più quanto più i fatti di cronaca siano gravi, le persone danneggiate vulnerabili, e i vissuti chiamati in causa così emotivamente connotati.
