“In a culture fueled by burnout, a culture that has run itself down, our national resilience becomes compromised. And when our collective immune system is weakened, we become more susceptible to viruses that are part of every culture because they’re part of human nature - fear-mongering, scapegoating, conspiracy theories, and demagoguery.” ~ Arianna Huffington
Burnout involves stress due to a lack of workplace boundaries, toxic culture, and unfair expectations. When we also lack the tools to manage negative emotions and feelings about workplace stress, it can lead to burnout.
How bad is it? A recent survey by the American Psychological Association examined 1,501 workers, with 79% experiencing burnout at their current job.
Considering approximately 130 million adults in the U.S. are in the workforce, a stunning 102 million adults in the U.S. suffer from some level of burnout. You have a lot of miserable people feeling the same way you do.
If you are experiencing the discouraging effects of burnout, this article will address specific options for you to seek treatment and gain victory over burnout.
Note these strategies are from a medical perspective. You may need to significantly change your work environment or find a new job to prevent burnout from becoming a recurring issue.
This article will address the following:
- What Are the Medical Approaches to Burnout?
- How Does Tiger Medical Treat Burnout?
- Who Should I See for Burnout?
What Are the Medical Approaches to Burnout?
The first approach is traditional Western medicine, which you will experience with your primary care physician. This is an excellent place to start.
Your doctor knows you better than anyone medically. You must share this information with your doctor, who will evaluate your health data and provide a suggestion or a referral.
Your primary care physician may refer you to a mental health professional, as common mental health conditions will include psychological and physical fatigue and burnout as symptoms.
Ruling this out will likely be part of your primary care doctor’s plan.
A third option is to seek care from a functional medicine physician. This can be done locally or in a specialty clinic like Tiger Medical Institute.
Functional medicine is an approach to medicine that is holistic and root-cause. The goal is proactive treatment before a condition turns into a severe problem.
How Does Tiger Medical Treat Burnout?

Upon attaining relevant medical data and creating a customized treatment plan, you’ll then enter bi-weekly coaching sessions with a health coach in consultation with Tiger doctors to help you implement the treatment plan and eight health habits. Some of these habits will be excellent strategies to mitigate the impact of workplace stress.
The root cause of your physical burnout will be identified in the testing, and a plan to address it successfully will be included in your personalized medical plan and health coaching.
Who Should I See for Burnout?
