Inside Story

Simone Wan

"Driven by my passion to better the lives of others, I have created safe, time tested, powerful plant-based formulas that help alleviate common ailments without compromising your health."

Simone's Story

I suffered a life changing event in 2002 - 11% of my body was second and third degree burned after a pressure cooker exploded in my NYC apartment. After 3 weeks in the ICU burn center, I was prescribed vast amounts of opioids and anti-depressant drugs for pain and anxiety. After experiencing severe side effects and dependency from these drugs and with no over-the-counter solution, I knew that I needed to find a healthier way to heal.  With the help of the healers in my four-year Masters program in Acupuncture and Herbology, I discovered my alternative path to getting well.  

My experiences have driven me to to help others who may struggle with pain and anxiety.  Over a decade of successful, professional practice on thousands of NYC and Connecticut patients have led me to marry Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) formulas that have been used for thousands of years and have proven highly effective for my patients, with effervescent technology and great taste for a magical combination.

It took 2 years to find the right U.S. manufacturer and in 2018, IN:Total Wellness products were born. 

 

Healed Within

In 2018 I published a memoir of my burn journey chronicling the experience of the accident and post surgical recovery, post traumatic stress disorder and my dependency on opioids and anti-depressant drugs. Whilst trying to be a “normal” late 20’s New Yorker, I soon realized my life would never be the same “normal” again. This memoir helped me heal myself emotionally, but the real heroes were doctors and nurses who help burn victims like me.

As such, I will donate 100% of the proceeds of this memoir to burnrescue.org, an organization that helps support the 15 million children who suffer burns and need treatment.
