CoronaVirus: arrivano gli anticorpi che esorcizzano la paura

CoronaVirus: arrivano gli anticorpi che esorcizzano la paura

Esiste un metodo tipicamente italiano per proteggersi da ciò che è sconosciuto e che spaventa: l’ironia e l’umorismo

Ironizzare su noi stessi e sulle nostre abitudini aiuta a rinforzare le difese immunitarie, ad allontanare la depressione e a ritrovare il gusto di vivere con spirito e fantasia.

La risata può infatti servire a ricontattare con più leggerezza i grandi temi della morte e della perdita e ad esorcizzare la paura della malattia.

L’umorismo rompe le convenzioni, spezza le formalità, allenta tensioni ed ansie.

In questo momento di agitazione generale provocata dalla scarsa conoscenza dei termini e degli effetti dell’epidemia in corso relativa al nuovo corona virus, stanno comparendo ultimamente sul web alcuni video davvero esilaranti, con tanto di accompagnamento musicale, che meritano di essere segnalati per l’ingegno e a creatività dei loro autori.

Ne ho scelti due. Questo è il primo.

In modi diversi, le risate fanno bene alla salute. Per esempio, all’Università di Oxford lo psicologo evoluzionista Robert Dunbar ha verificato l’effetto delle risate sul dolore e ha scoperto che la visione di video comici innalza del 10% la soglia del dolore. Dunbar ipotizza che la funzione analgesica sia dovuta alla liberazione di endorfine, neurotrasmettitori prodotti dal cervello che hanno un effetto antidolorifico e rilassante.

La risata – è oggi scientificamente provato – è il primo farmaco antidepressivo di cui nella vita dovremmo saper fare tesoro. Ridere ha una fondamentale funzione “depurativa” a livello mentale: più la risata è decisa e spontanea, più essa agisce come un fulmine, una potente scarica elettrica che ripulisce l’atmosfera dalle tensioni vaganti. Ogni risata, infatti, innesca una cascata di modificazioni a livello cerebrale, che poi hanno una ricaduta benefica sul piano fisico.

E questo è il secondo divertente video:

La risata ha origine dalla corteccia frontale del cervello, per poi spostarsi alla zona limbica, sede degli impulsi legati alle emozioni viscerali. Qui la risata provoca la secrezione di una serie di mediatori neurochimici che portano il messaggio fino al nervo vago. Dal nervo vago partono gli impulsi a contrarre il diaframma, l’apparato respiratorio e infine l’addome.

Tanto più ci si abbandona al ridere senza freni, tanto meglio l’effetto dirompente dello scoppio di ilarità produce un senso di totale abbandono. Sul piano fisico, questo provoca rilassamento muscolare, riduzione della pressione e delle tensioni, regolarizzazione del battito cardiaco, rafforzamento del sistema immunitario e una generale sensazione di benessere.
