Hello, I am Nancy Thong and I’m extremely grateful to be part of this amazing functional health team at Excell For Life!
I am an AANP board certified Family Nurse Practitioner with 6 years of experience. I earned my Masters of Science in Nursing with honors from Indiana University in 2014.
My focus has always been Primary Care and health promotion. My passion is to help patients find the root cause of their health problems and help them stay healthy in mind, body and spirit. I believe more importantly the mental and the spiritual aspects are the most imperative. I have quickly learned over the years of practice that a pharmaceutical drug is not always the answer as a treatment. It has been a blessing and refreshing to work in a clinical setting, like Excell For Life, where I have had the opportunity to integrate Western and Functional medicine. Currently, I’m pursing my certification as a Functionalist.
My special interests are managing chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, hypothyroidism, and asthma. I believe that physicals and health screenings are imperative to preventative health care. My most recent area of interest has been essential oils. Since being introduced to Young Living essential oils in 2018, the oils have become a part of my daily regimen and have greatly improved my overall health. The more I have learned the science behind essential oils, I now understand why it is coined “essential oils” because it is essential to our body.
I am also interested in research. In the past, I have co-authored several clinical pharmacology research publications, as an IU School of Medicine research nurse coordinator.
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking and spending time with family and friends. I like to stay healthy and running and gardening are a part of my life. I participated in my first marathon at Chicago in 2004-my goal was to finish the race without injury which I met! I also enjoy travelling, one of my favorite countries I would like to re- visit is Israel. By far, the greatest joy has been my mission trips to Dominica Republic, Latvia, Swaziland, Uganda, and Kenya. My goal is to do more over-seas mission trips to third world countries.
I look forward to partnering with you and your family to reach your optimal health!
