Dr. Peter Zilahy
Dr. Peter Zilahy has been practicing complementary and alternative medicine for more than 34 years. He brings to his patients years of experience and knowledge. Dr. Zilahy prides himself in being “ahead of the curve” when it comes to natural methods. For example, in the early eighties he was advising patients to stay away from trans-fatty acids and lowering cholesterol when a cholesterol reading of 300 was normal. In 1989 he was one of the first practioners in the state to implement an exercise center for spinal conditions when the standard of care was bedrest. Dr. Zilahy was awarded “Chiropractor Of The Year” by the Connecticut Chiropractic Association. He was elected to the board of directors of the Waterbury Chamber’s Healthcare Council and to the examining board of the American Clinical Board of Nutrition. He was the first chiropractor and acupuncturist to be granted privileges in a Connecticut hospital at St. Mary’s.
Honor the self-healing miracle that lies within each and every one of us. The power that made our bodies can heal our bodies as long as we can remove the interference that is preventing health and support the body in its healing.
I take a comprehensive natural approach to meet the patient’s most immediate needs. I draw from my experience of practicing complementary medicine utilizing the best of natural methods (acupuncture, chiropractic, nutrition and exercise) to treat the patient’s chief concern. I then offer a partnership to help patients to go beyond their symptoms to prevent recurrence and then help them make lifestyle changes to achieve their optimum level of health.
