  • A Doctor Who Preaches What He Practices

    Well-known Canadian Tourette Syndrome specialist preaches what he practices

    This doctor knows exactly how a person with tics feels. He's gone through the same frustrations.

    Dr. Duncan McKinlay has Tourette Syndrome. At age seven, he noticed what he called a devil in his head. His parents thought he was delinquent. His classmates were sure he was nuts. He was unable to control his strange urges, and in his teens, it wasn't a question of whether to kill himself, but when.

    He was finally diagnosed at 19. Since then, he has focused everything he had on researching TS. It's now his life path. Since coming to understand all his strange ticks are release triggers for the high energy charging through him, he earned a doctorate in psychology. He's in nationwide demand for his workshops that enlighten, entertain, and boost the spirits of the one percent of Canadians living with Tourette's. A documentary film was created about Dr. Duncan by Symmetree Media (distributed through National Film Board of Canada).

    He found a way to control his tics and wrote a book so others can do the same.

    Nix Your Tics! A How-To Guide for Nixing Unwanted Tic Symptoms by B. Duncan McKinlay, Ph. D., C.Psych. (ISBN 978-0-9810684-0-4) has the power to help you make the tics of your choosing to go away—for good!

    This book has been endorsed by Paul Sandor, M.D. (Director, Tourette Syndrome Clinic, Toronto Western Hospital and Chair, Professional Advisory Board, Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada), John T. Walkup, M. D. (Department of Psychiatry, John Hopkins Medical Institute and Chairman, Medical Advisory Board, Tourette Syndrome Association), and many more.
