About Slow Aging

Even if you live ‘hard and fast’, you may still want to slow aging, and if you do, you share the philosophy of the team behind Slow Aging. As well as providing extensive information about preventing disease, we also concentrate on supporting the structure and function of our bodies and optimizing our quality of life as we age.

Much of our slow aging information is backed up by current scientific and medical thinking, helping you to explore the different interventions available while supporting you in making informed decisions.

It was ten years ago that Slow Aging began, and since then, we have developed our Slow Aging Philosophy, our 7 Slow Aging Principles (AGELESS) and the bestselling book, ‘Fast Living, Slow Ageing’, the second edition of which will soon be appearing on the shelves.

About Kate Marie

Kate-MarieFormer nurse Kate Marie decided some time ago that she would like to reach the ripe old age of 130. Her search for practitioners to assist on this journey for longevity while remaining well is at the heart of much of the work that she does. Also important is Kate’s awareness of the lack of ‘best practice’ available for the many individuals that want to stay well and try to prevent disease.

Kate has had numerous roles, including strategic marketing, publishing and business development in the medical, and the health and aged care sectors. Kate is currently head of marketing for General Practice Training Queensland and a partner at Content Doctor.
