Couple's Journey Through Adversity Leads To Award-Winning Assuaged Lifestyle Application
Inspired by a life-changing event, the Murphys embarked on a journey to help serve people in need by building impactful change through health and wellness.
The inspiration behind this application is even more impressive than the accolades it is receiving. Thane and Cynthia Murphy both have endured multiple illnesses and sought the curative properties of herbs and plant-based foods. Thane is a disabled USMC veteran who suffers from PTSD incurred by a severe Traumatic Brain Injury during his service. He has experienced invasive and debilitating skin rashes since childhood and was diagnosed as severely obese and pre-diabetic. Since then, he has found a cure through diet and nutrition, reversing everything.
Cynthia is a craniofacial disability activist who has overcome many chronic health conditions caused by Treacher Collins Syndrome, a genetic birth defect that affects the bones, muscles, and soft tissues of the face and skull. To date, she has undergone 16+ reconstructive plastic surgeries and is pending a second major jaw surgery.
As the Murphys suffered a myriad of progressively worsening symptoms, they realized that eating organically nutritious foods to battle those symptoms was challenging due to the scarcity of health resources and money. This challenge inspired them to seek to bridge the gap between healthcare and self-care to meet the needs of healthy living as a method for longevity. They are now going beyond charity and unifying people through love and compassion via the Assuaged lifestyle application.
"We are proud of Assuaged and all the qualities it stands for. The responses to our app have been very positive and we are organically growing more every day. Health and nutrition are vitally significant. Today, cancer and illness are on the rise and people need hand-holding. Our goal is to do just that: help people find the healing and physical wellness that we did, at no cost to them."
