Biography

When choosing a Chiropractor, you must find one that is aligned with your own core values and beliefs. So, let me share with you my own philosophy on health. I believe in Vitalism. I believe that each and every one of us – at our deepest core – is a unique expression of the cosmos. We are immersed in this fabric of consciousness just as each cell of the body is immersed in the collective conscious of the human being. It may not be aware of its immersion, but it’s the source from which it receives information and power. And, just as the cell communicates through the structure we call the nervous system, we too communicate with this unified field of consciousness through intuition, inspiration, creativity and insight. Our ‘natural’ state is when we are connected with this higher intelligence – only then are we in alignment and fully alive. The Chiropractic I choose to practice is based on the principles of Vitalism. The nervous system [brain and spinal cord] controls and communicates with every cell, tissue and organ in the body. It is the power that flows through the nervous system that gives LIFE to your body. When the energy is not in alignment, the body – and all its functions – will suffer. My job, as a Chiropractor, is not to heal you. Your body already knows how to do that. My job is to remove the interference to your nervous system. If you nervous system is not communicating clearly with your body, this will manifest as poor cell regeneration [ the process of new cells replacing old cells ]. Poor regeneration – over time – leads to poor cellular function. When cells and organ systems fail to regenerate optimally, the effects are cumulative. Once it reaches a threshold, the body sends a signal. It manifests as pain, tension, numbness or tingling and inflammation. This loss of neurological coherence or integration is known as a subluxation. [sub] = less than [lux] = light, [ation] = condition. In other words, a condition of less than adequate light. What is light? All energy is light, including the energy that flows through your body. Our focus isn’t pain relief. Pain is the messenger and its telling you that your nervous system is not in alignment. Our focus is alignment. Its addressing the cause – not the symptoms. symptoms ONLY resolve when the underlying CAUSE is corrected. If this resonates with you, then you’ve come to the right place.

  • He's No Pastry But Dr. Filo Is Crisp, Buttery and Supple
    Reviewed on March 23rd, 2016  •  Verified patient
    Dr. John Filo's adjustments are "crisp" but not forceful, "buttery" because he slides the adjustment into place as if your joints are lubricated and supple because body and joints feel remarkably supple when he's making his adjustments and I was subluxation for quite some time and my muscles were in spasm.

    Treatments always make me feel better, it's close to my home, he always runs pretty close to appointment times. I'm always pleased with my treatments and Dr Filo is a great, knowledgeable, and honest Chiropractor.
