Meet Dr. Zilahy


Dr. Peter Zilahy has been practicing complementary and alternative medicine for more than 33 years. He has an extensive knowledge in functional neurology, orthopedics and medicine along with acupuncture and clinical nutrition. 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.
