How to Inspire Others and Heal Your Friends and Family

Do you know anyone with a serious health issue? Are they unreceptive to Paleo despite your pleading and all the results you have experienced? Are you frustrated that your family or friends don't “get it” even though you know how much a diet change could help them? As a practicing Health and Nutrition Coach, inspiring others to make diet and lifestyle changes is one of Joe's areas of expertise. In this talk you will learn how to inspire your friends and family to eat healthier and be happier! Joe's transformation in health combined with his analytical mind developed at MIT led Joe to his current path of nutrition and lifestyle coach.

About Kamal Patel


Kamal's Presentation

Nutrition and Chronic Pain — Eat more, ouch less?

Paleo diets are sometimes beneficial for chronic pain issues, ranging from sports injuries to auto-immune conditions to systemic inflammation. What is the optimal diet for someone looking to address chronic pain? Is there sufficient evidence for any specific diet, nutrient, or supplementation? These are important but complex issues that are rarely addressed by the medical community. Kamal brings insight to these questions as a PhD student studying nutrition and pain, moderator at Paleohacks, and blogger.

This meetup will be help at the Mehtas in Back Bay. It's super easy to get to, we live right above the Hynes Convention Center T-Stop (Green line) and near #1, 193, and CT1 Bus (Mass Ave & Newbury). The Back Bay Commuter Line is about a 15 min walk.

We live at 360 Newbury St, Unit 807 (8th floor), Boston MA 02115 (You can GPS it) also I-90, exit Copley will get you there. We live above what used to be the Best Buy/Virgin Records on the corner of Mass Ave with the entrance on Newbury St in a concierge building – call the concierge from the touchpad (our name is on the directory but our phone is not connected to it) and the concierge will let you in. We are also above the Hynes Convention Green line subway.


1) cheapest but hardest to come on Newbury street/curbside parking.

2) Danker and Donahue Parking Garage (Cash only) on 341 Newbury St is the closest parking like 500 ft away. If this is full then got to #3

3) Pilgrim Parking Garage/Hynes Auditorium Garage (I think this might be cash only too – call to confirm)- take a left onto Mass Ave, then left on Boylston, then right on 50 Dalton St. Huge multistory garage. This is one block from where we live about 5 min.
