Think allergies as the blind men and the elephant story.

"Once upon a time, there lived six blind men in a village. One day the villagers told them:

_Hey, there is an elephant in the village today.

They had no idea what an elephant is. They decided:

_Even though we would not be able to see it, let us go and feel it anyway.

All of them went where the elephant was. Everyone of them touched the elephant.

_Hey, the elephant is a pillar. - said the first man who touched his leg.

_Oh, no! It is like a rope. - said the second man who touched the tail.

_Oh, no! It is like a thick branch of a tree. - said the third man who touched the trunk of the elephant.

_It is like a big hand fan. - said the fourth man who touched the ear of the elephant.

_It is like a huge wall. - said the fifth man who touched the belly of the elephant.

_It is like a solid pipe. - said the sixth man who touched the tusk of the elephant.

They began to argue about the elephant and everyone of them insisted that he was right. It looked like they were getting agitated. A wise man was passing by and he saw this. He stopped and asked them:

_What is the matter?

_We cannot agree to what the elephant is like. - they say.

Each one of them told what he thought the elephant was like. The wise man calmly explained to them:

_All of you are right. The reason every one of you is telling it differently because each one of you touched the different part of the elephant. So, actually the elephant has all those features what you all said.

_Oh! - everyone said.

There was no more fight. They felt happy that they were all right."

The story is similar what we can see nowadays about allergies. Sometimes it looks like a psychological issue, but maybe it's just a different perspective.

We all may have our reasons.

More fun with allergy here.

Funny gluten here.
