I dont know much about chinese medicine but I am in contact with a chinese girl on another board and this post might be of some use to you:
When I was a small child, my brain wave showed that I was epileptic though rare clinical menifesations appeared on me. Only minor headache bothered me at that time. Then I started to take traditional Chinese herbs which you boil every day. Little by little my brain wave became normal and my head trouble faded off. If you can find a trustworthy traditional Chinese doctor, I suggest you to take his prescription. I have no idea if traditional Chinese medicine is alternative and it also use drugs, but comparing with composed chamicals, the herbs have more notable effects on epilepsy. And I boldly tell you that other alternative therapies can not take the place of drugs completely if they take any effects.
Hopefully this will be useful to you. Siberia to China is a long way to go for treatment but if it works and you have very few sources of treatment in Siberia then I would say go for it.
Let us know how you get on
