After a long ordeal and incorrect diagnosis, Els De Schepper is finally back: “Be critical when you receive a discount code from a doctor!”

Els De Schepper was out of action for months, but she fought back and is now ready to stand on the podium again. In September she will launch a new show and an accompanying book, but first she talks about her long agony.

Sleeping eleven hours every night and still being tired, a voice that failed, a memory that failed her: Els De Schepper was in bad shape just under a year ago. Depression and burnout was the diagnosis she received. A doctor prescribed her IVs and a series of supplements.

“And then something strange happened. I received a sheet with a unique discount code of 10 percent if I ordered supplements online. It is probably the case, and this seems to be a widespread practice, that the doctor receives 20 to 40 percent for each supplement prescribed,” says De Schepper.

“Possible conflict of interest”

“Then there may be a conflict of interest, because that doctor can earn a lot. I want to warn people: if a doctor gives a discount code, be critical,” advises De Schepper, who received a completely different diagnosis after consulting another doctor. She wasn’t depressed, she had long covid. Thanks to the right treatment, she is now on the mend again.

“I want to tell you what happened, but above all remember: I’m back and I’m going to play again. I’m back,” Els emphasizes, after which she tells her story here. Now that she has regained her strength, she will return in the autumn with her new show What am I doing here?! She receives a different BV each time, while the audience is actively involved in the show.
