My 3 years old son was diagnosed with epilepsy.

Currently we are living in Siberia. Of course we tried to find help in big cities like St.Petersburg, but one of the doctors recommended traveling abroad because of very poor epilepsy treatment in Russia. They just give very strong drugs; don’t even care about side effects.


I heard that China has a very modern medical service in Pyongyang and that mix of modern and traditional Chinese medicine can be very effective with epilepsy.


I think we are going to try it.


Does anyone have any experience with Chine medicine?

Or maybe someone would like to join us on the trip?

Hi there,

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:


Hi djdaz,
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

Good morning, This is my first time on so forgive me if I do things wrong. I too am looking for alternative medicine (not medication) to help control my seizures. Has anyone used acupuncture, and how do you feel about it? I also saw an advertisement and will ask my Dr. about it but he always seems to discourage anything that is alternative than drugs. I am tired of being a zombie and want to take my life back. I have had seizures most of my life, I am 52 and have been on most of all the drugs you can be on with no success. They won't operate on me, to risky so they put a "Vegas Nerve Implant" in me in 2001 which wasn't successful for me. It is successful for many people though; don't get me wrong. I have been having an increase in seizures for the last 2 yrs. (8-12 complex partial/mo.) I believe that I am going through menopause and that is causing me to have more seizures. Just like when I started my period when I was 9 yrs. old I stopped having them until I was in my 20's. Is there any other woman going through the same experience? What irritates me is my male Dr.s seem to discount my belief. I believe we know our own bodies, and we pay them to listen and help us. Perhaps someone can help me? Thank you Sharon
Reason for edit:
I have had to take out the phone number that you posted as we are not allowed to post offline contact details (for yourselfr or another company). Darren
