“Fatigue makes fools of us all. It robs you of your skills and your judgment, and it blinds you to creative solutions. It’s the best-conditioned athlete, not the most talented, who generally wins when the going gets tough.” ~ Harvey Mackay
What is Exhaustion Costing You?
Fatigue is expensive.
It costs us good health, ruins relationships, and hijacks our productivity.
Is exhaustion costly? Yes, without question.
In this article, we will be answering the following three questions:
- What are the common causes of fatigue?
- Should you see a doctor if you are always tired?
- What is Tiger Medical’s approach to reducing fatigue?
What are the Common Causes of Fatigue?
Common causes include poor sleep, chronic stress, and underlying health issues that haven’t been detected.
Our fast-paced, sedentary lifestyle characterized by drive-through lunches in a sack set us up for poor underlying health.
For those approaching middle age, the compounding of poor choices over decades leads to generalized fatigue.
The risk of severe fatigue ranges from low (could be as simple as restoring sleep) to severe (you have serious underlying health problems), necessitating seeking professional medical attention.
Should You See a Doctor if You are Always Tired?
Undetected, hidden illness risk is the primary reason you want to seek the attention and care of a licensed medical professional for your fatigue. It could be a simple fix; you don’t know, and because of the uncertainty, seeking a doctor is the best next step.
Fatigue is a tricky condition. It could be a canary in the coal mine for a more severe condition.
At this point, you have a decision to make. What approach to medicine do you want to take to find the solution?
1. Traditional Medicine
The first approach is traditional medicine.
In this approach, a diagnosis is sought to treat through drug or surgical intervention.
Other intervention possibilities exist as well, depending on the diagnosis. In this approach, one may move months from one hypothesis and test to another to seek a solution.
This approach is excellent at finding and treating disease.
2. Functional Medicine
An alternative approach is to test comprehensively, seeking the root cause or underlying mechanisms causing your functional medicine physicians to practice root cause analysis.
When you’ve ruled out significant diseases, this approach is excellent for solving a combination of mechanisms causing low energy.
What is Tiger Medical’s Approach to Reducing Fatigue?
Tiger employs a three-step process with each patient that has proven to work repeatedly in resolving underlying causes of common symptoms.
These symptoms keep you from showing up as the best version of yourself.
Here is how Tiger helps:
- Test to establish a comprehensive view of the truth about your health.
- Create a plan that is customized to your unique set of circumstances.
- The patient enters into a process that leads to results.
Tiger Medical employs advanced tests to view your health profile comprehensively.
You complete a health history survey, and our doctors review, interview, and customize your testing based on what they learn about you.
From test results, we customize your health recovery path.
You then enter into the Tiger Medical process that generates results consistently over time. You can go here to learn from previous Tiger clients how our approach worked for them!
