Burnout Prevention and Treatment

Burnout is a complex condition that can result from chronic stress, emotional exhaustion, prolonged exhaustion caused by unrelenting stressors including illness, passing of a loved one, workplace responsibilities, birth of a child, academic responsibilities and aging.

Adrenal fatigue can be a result of chronic stress and can lead to adrenal gland dysfunction. These are two concerns that frequently present in our office, and we have solutions that are holistic and integrative to address burnout and adrenal fatigue.

Did you know your personalized treatment plan could include a combination of lifestyle modifications, dietary changes, botanical medicine, and supplementation? Here are some examples of how I can you help you with burnout and adrenal fatigue symptoms:

Lifestyle modifications might include recommendations for better sleep hygiene, exercise routines, and an adjustment of work schedules to reduce stress levels. Stress reduction techniques, such as mindfulness meditation, yoga and acupuncture.

Dietary changes might be recommended to support the body’s stress response, such as eating nutrient-dense foods and avoiding processed foods and caffeine. This diet might be enhanced by specific doses of magnesium, vitamin B complex, and adaptogenic herbs like ashwagandha and rhodiola rosea.

Adaptogenic botanical medicines like Rhodiola rosea, Panax ginseng and St. John’s Wort to support the body’s response to stress might be indicated to improve mood, reduce fatigue, and improve cognitive function. These work on the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis.

If you are someone who constantly gets sick, we can assess your candidacy for supplements that include probiotics, omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, and vitamin D to strengthen your immune system.
