Since 2007, Dr. Joseph Dimalanta has had his own holistic and natural health care clinic on Guam working with patients practicing both Chiropractic and Nutrition for numerous health conditions. In his early years of practicing nutrition, Dr. D primarily focused on working with and coaching individual athletes and designing their sports nutrition plans for either sports performance or physique competitions.  He was very fortunate to have a lot of success working with and coaching many local athletes to win both local championship titles and National Physique Competitions (NPC) titles in the US.

As the number of his nutritional patients and different types of cases and conditions grew,  Dr. D discovered a new found mission and passion working with non competitive athletes and the chronic disease population on Guam. Dr. D’s mission now is optimizing health naturally through nutrition and he is committed to taking on the great challenge of reversing diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity on Guam with his patients.

Because of the challenge of whole food availability and the easy convenience to eat unhealthy foods and meals on Guam, Dr. D set forth to create a one of a kind meal prep with successful Executive Chef Lingo Quichocho. Specializing in incorporating local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients into his cooking Chef Lingo brings all his special talents to make it a one of a kind meal prep and team.

The Health Bistro team aim to create a truly customized meal prep that is guaranteed to be delicious and satisfying, and achieve the full health results you’re looking for.
