Going to another country for treatment

I live in Sweden but they refuse to help me with my problems. They don't even bother looking into it and say that I am young and ''look healthy'' and should just go outside more and dismiss my case and won't even give me a chance nor care about any evidence I bring up. I believe this is the case not just for Sweden but is a constant thing that happens throughout the western hemisphere. I was looking at another country like Russia ( I know this country is a sensitive thing to bring up) and to me they seem open minded and caring to unusual medical problems. Has anyone done something like this and can any foreigners receive help? This is my last chance otherwise I don't know what I will do.

It would be nice to know what the origins of the problem are. For instance, if you have bacterial infections then Russia is adept of using Phage therapy which is wonderful for antibiotic resistant infections. The Germans have a cross therapies which include ozone therapy and many different types of modalities. I know of one clinic that deals with Lyme that is in Germany.

Traditional Chinese Medicine may offer some help, they were able to pinpoint some issues with me and offer both herbal approaches along with acupuncture. In my latest venture, they found a Stomach Yin deficiency which is said to be parallel to chronic fatigue syndrome.

Mehlsen Klinik in Copenhagen would be closest to you.

Have you tried Olli Polo? He's a Finnish sleep and ME specialist who works in Stockholm. He used to be practically the only ME specialist in Finland and he had a clinic in my home city Tampere, but he lost his license here several years ago because the officials deemed he's "endangering his patients" (with -gasp- oxygen therapy and LDN). I'd recommend contacting him first, it might be a bit easier than traveling abroad.
