Educational Background

Dr. Sweta Adatia, MD (Medicine), DNB (Neurology) is a young and dynamic Neurologist specializing in the treatment of strokes. She attended St. Xavier’s High School and was ranked first in classes all the way through her school career. She then opted to pursue a career in medicine. She began an MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) in 1997 and completed her study in 2003, having obtained over 13 gold medals and prizes in subjects such as Physiology, Pharmacology, Forensic Medicine, ENT, Ophthalmology, Gynecology, and Internal Medicine. She choose an MD in Internal Medicine as her post graduate field and successfully completed her MD in 2006 with a gold medal.

Being interested in the structure and function of the brain, she moved in to studying Neurology at the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIMS). During this time she authored “Viva Voce in Neurology” which contains over 1000 questions of neurology and caters to the needs of MD/MBBS students undertaking exams in the subject. It was printed by an eminent Mumbai publishing house.

She then undertook a master’s in Neurology (DNB) at Lilavati Hospital and Research Center in Mumbai, a nationally top-ten ranked hospital in patient services. She completed her super-specialty course in 2010. During her training she became deeply interested in pain and stroke medicine and pursued these fields in her later training. Her fellowship in pain medicine was completed, under the eminent pain specialist Dr. Pradeep Jain, at Sir Gangaram Hospital, New Delhi. She then successfully concluded a two year fellowship in cerebrovascular strokes at Foothills Medical Centre, University of Calgary, Canada. The Calgary stroke program, one of the top ten stroke care programs in the world, has a yearly intake of over a thousand patients, it provides an incredibly rich learning environment and focuses on novel methods of research.

Other Achievements

Understanding that failing to know your inner self can lead to disastrous career choices led her to think more deeply on the process while she interviewed students. This led her to embark on a deeper study of the whole scientific process of effective and confident career choice. She thoroughly studied existing psychometric tests useful in choosing a career/job, including the MBTI, Mettl, Careerfitter, HBDI, and DISC tests. She completed most of these assessments simply to give herself a greater understanding of the tools the tests utilized. After personal study of many of these tests she decided to make a generic study of brain design. She used NBI (Neethling Brain Inventory), feeling it connected most accurately to a person’s existing life preferences and decision making abilities and to their skills in communication, business, and relationships. She found it to be a unique tool as it provided an opportunity to develop and grow unused or less favored areas of the brain.

She completed the whole brain training course under her able mentor Anna Santos at Abbotsford in British Columbia, Canada. Being interested in the science of career choice, she then pursued prospective and retrospective analytical research studies to ascertain exactly what helps students make confident career choices. She devised a test based on the NBI brain design test. The new test would map the right career choice for high school and secondary students. She is a whole brain master practitioner for Asia, the UAE and East Africa. Whole brain thinking processes help students, teachers, individuals, and corporate businessmen to think differently and achieve the pinnacle in their area of work. Gaining insight in to why we think differently improves communication, learning, business methodology, and career choice.

Dr Adatia also became interested in treating children with ADD, ADHD, and Autism and so she studied Neurofeedback Therapy at BSI International, California and is now a trained Neurofeedback practitioner certified in the USA. She also trained in Advanced Therapeutics in Neurofeedback for children and adults under the respected Dr. Brownback.

She is the founder of Chinmaya Brain Links in Mumbai. The first company in India run by a Neurologist specialized in understanding the principles of thinking and with a background training in Neurology, which can help people understand their thinking processes.

Dr Sweta Adatia is multi talented and has achieved mastery in many fields besides Medicine and Neurology. She has completed her Visharad (BA in music) in harmonium. She has competed in table tennis tournaments in various National/District level championships and won many trophies. She is deeply spiritually inclined and has a significant interest in the science of alternative medicine. She has completed the advanced pranic healing and pranic psychotherapy courses of Master Choa Kok Sui in Mumbai. She has formal hypnotherapy training in past life regression from the master Dr Brain Weiss of New York, the author of the extremely famous book “Many Lives, Many Masters”.

She has a great deal of research experience in the field of Neurology and has published many papers, both nationally and internationally. She authored a popular article, GROW MORE GREY CELLS, in the health and nutrition magazine published by Magna Publications, Mumbai. She has over 30 posters and publications to her credit at various national and international conferences. She also published an article for an ebook on strokes titled : Early symptoms, signs and diagnosis of Stroke.

After returning to Mumbai from Canada, being aghast at people’s ignorance about strokes, how they were confused with heart attacks, she and her close friends developed a HINDI acronym “BACHAV” for mass use. The acronym was presented at a national stroke conference and adopted by a renowned pharmaceutical company for the public and disseminated across India. The acronym helped people understand the symptoms of stroke in simple HINDI. Click www.step2health.co.in for more information.

Further studying the status of Neurology in India, she felt a need to develop an online access portal for patients where neurologists, neurosurgeons and psychiatrists could be easily reached for video or e-counseling, thus BRAINCLICK was developed. BRAINCLICK is a platform www.brainclick.in dedicated to connecting various neuro-doctors to society which also offers free brain health advice.

She is an active founder of the program MyMedtor for helping students appearing in NEET SS entrance exams effectively and successfully.

She lives a simple life and is dedicated to her subject. She is loved and respected by students and patients alike. In her spare time she volunteers at the Chinmaya Mission devoting herself particularly to value based education and the development of better schools in India. She has led many diverse sessions for teachers at seminars held by the Central Chinmaya Mission trust education cell and works closely with Swamini Vimalananda, the National director of education for CVP, a program responsible for over 8 colleges and 86 schools and the development of effective teaching techniques and learning tools for implementation in many more schools. She is the founder of a program called Personalized which effectively incorporates principles of whole brain learning to carve the program for effective learning and teaching strategies for children and teachers at schools.
