Help Julian Young get urgent treatment for his vaccine injury: LifeFunder

Editor’s note: LifeSiteNews has interviewed Julian Young, who willingly shared documents showing that he was enrolled as a seminarian in the northeastern United States, that he received two doses of a COVID “vaccine,” and that he is now under medical care for autoimmune disease. 

(LifeSiteNews) — An autoimmune disease led to me leaving the seminary, and I believe my two COVID jabs are to blame.

My name is Julian Young.  I am an aspirant to the priesthood for the Catholic Church. I did not grow up in the faith, but a few years after I graduated high school in 2010 I had a life-changing encounter with God and experienced His radical love and forgiveness in my life.

This experience led to a journey towards spiritual truth, but since I did not immediately recognize Jesus Christ as the Truth and as God Himself, my search initially led me down an erroneous path of religious pluralism. For a while I thought of Jesus simply as an ordinary, although wise, spiritual teacher, and I naively viewed all religions as teaching the same truth albeit in different ways.

For the first time, I prayed to Jesus for help

At the time, this way of thinking opened up some undesirable doorways for me, allowing the Enemy to generate a lot of fear and uncertainty in my spiritual life and causing me to rethink my path. One night, while experiencing some anxiety about this, an interior voice prompted me to pray to Jesus for help. It was not something I had ever done before, but at this point I was more than willing since I felt helpless to control the situation that was unfolding in my life. This was the first time I recognized my need for Christ.

Our Lord was quick to answer as, over the next few days, I felt that a flame had ignited in my soul, which now recognized Christ as its Savior and Redeemer, alone deserving of all worship. Satan’s attacks on my spiritual life stopped soon after.

I began to bury myself in Sacred Scripture, and Divine Providence soon led me to the fullness of Truth in the Catholic Church. In 2017, I was received into the Church, taking our Lady, the Blessed Virgin, as my patron saint in confirmation.

It was around this time that I began to discern my vocation. A strong desire to unite myself to Christ in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass led me to consider the priesthood, and in 2019 I took my first definitive step in this direction, trying my best to respond to God’s call.

At first I packed up my bags and left overseas to France to join the Missions Étrangères de Paris as a propaedeutic [student], thinking that our Lord might be pleased were I to evangelize in the east as a missionary priest. However, after several months of discernment, I realized that this was not my call, so I returned home to the USA to join the seminary and begin the path towards diocesan priesthood.

As I settled into the daily seminary routine and pursued my studies, I began to feel a deep sense of happiness and that I was finally where God wanted me to be. Sadly, Satan would again make his attack, this time on a global scale, as we would all became painfully aware.

Happy in my studies, I decided to do the ‘safe’ thing and get the jab

It was 2020 when I began my studies and, of course, at this time there was still widespread fear about COVID-19. The “vaccines” were about to be rolled out, and there was a lot of disagreement about whether or not the shots were safe. By the end of my spring semester 2021, like so many others, I unfortunately allowed fear to dictate my decision and decided to do the “safe” thing for my family and get the jab.

The ill effects of this poor decision weren’t immediate, so at first it did not occur to me that there was any correlation, but over the course of the next several months I began to experience inflammation in my lower body that caused pain in my back, especially, making it hard to sit. I figured that I just needed to go to the chiropractor, which helped a little, but the inflammation persisted.

That winter I made the unfortunate decision to get “boosted,” and that is when things really took a turn for the worse. Around that same time, I had injured my foot while running down some steps, and I began to feel inflammation around the site of the injury. To my bafflement, I began experiencing soon after a mirror phenomenon of pain and inflammation in my other foot as well, although I had done nothing to injure it.

I figured that I just needed to see a doctor, and that my feet would heal soon, so I went to a podiatrist who put me in a boot for six weeks and told me I would get better. However, he could not explain why my other foot was experiencing the same pattern of pain. By the end of the six weeks, not only was I not better, but the pain in both of my feet had elevated to an extreme burning and tingling.

At this time I was in still at the seminary, and although I managed to finish the semester, it was very difficult to get around and also to focus on my studies while trying to figure out what was going on with my health.

By the summer of 2022, my health continued to get worse. The inflammation and burning spread up my body, leading me to be relegated to a wheelchair. I didn’t have much success during the summer with doctors, so eventually I was forced to take a medical leave from my studies. It wasn’t until some friends pointed out to me that I had been “vaccinated” soon before the decline of my health that I began to realize the likely connection.

While at seminary, Julian took two COVID jabs. Now he is in a wheelchair with autoimmune diseases and chronic pain. Conventional medicine holds out no hope, but the Spero Clinic helps patients who are suffering from severe chronic pain. Could you help Julian return to health and to his studies for the Catholic priesthood?

Mercury toxicity, complex regional pain syndrome, POTS

It has been a year now since I first took my medical leave, and I have had to surrender my status as a seminarian on an indefinite basis. During the course of the past year, it was found that I have mercury toxicity, which of course is a rare thing to have, but — not surprisingly — mercury has since been demonstrated to be in the COVID jabs along with other toxic heavy metals.

I was also diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), a rare autoimmune disease rooted in dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, which usually begins with a minor trauma (in my case the foot injury) to which the nervous system, being in a compromised state, has an over-reactive response. This causes the trauma to exacerbate into a full blown inflammatory disease, in many cases spreading to the entire body. This is what has already happened to me. People with CRPS say it feels like they are being burned alive, and I attest that this has unfortunately been my experience, especially during really bad flare-ups.

Additionally, although I am still being tested, one of my doctors strongly believes that I have postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), another debilitating autoimmune disease rooted in autonomic nervous system dysfunction. It affects one’s heart and blood pressure.  NBC News recently did a story on the spike of people being diagnosed with POTS after getting COVID. I have never had COVID, but I wouldn’t put it past the jabs to have the same effect.

I have been to the ER so many times in the past year that I have lost count.  I have seen so many specialists, and yet my life still consists of sitting in my house day after day in crippling pain praying that our Lord would restore me so that I can return to my studies and become His priest. Although I know God can bring good out of my suffering, it is a very heavy burden to me and my family. I have tried a lot of the detox protocols put out by  doctors and researchers trying to help vaccine injured people, and although I have seen some improvements, my development has not been linear, for other aspects of my health have continued to decline, leaving me with a daily struggle to survive.

It is for this reason that I am seeking the help of the LifeSiteNews community so that I may receive the proper treatment to regain my health and resume my vocation. To this end I reached out to LifeSite for help in raising awareness of my story. I was happy when they agreed to help me promote a LifeFunder for my cause as well – it was truly an answer to prayer.

For both of the autoimmune conditions that I suffer with, the allopathic (that is, mainstream) medicine world says there is no cure. Removing the mercury from my body is a step towards health, but my doctor says there is no guarantee that my autonomic nervous system would return to normal function afterwards: my body would still have to be “reset” somehow.

The Spero Clinic holds out hope for neurologic recovery

There is a clinic in Arkansas called the Spero Clinic. At this clinic, Dr. Katinka van der Merwe and her team use a Neurologic Recovery Program to help patients who are suffering from severe chronic pain like CRPS. They focus on neurologic rehabilitation and restoring balance to the autonomic nervous system, and consequently their treatment is effective for other chronic conditions rooted in the same type of neurological dysfunction, such as POTS. Dr. Katinka’s world-leading 12 Week Neurologic Rehabilitation program helps treat hopeless cases worldwide, and as of 2021 they have an 84% remission rate. Traditional allopathic medicine offers nothing more than pain management and physical therapy for CRPS, which alone are often ineffective, leaving people to suffer with it for the rest of their lives.

Unfortunately, insurance companies choose not to cover the treatments at Spero because they do not fall in line with traditional allopathic modalities. For this reason, many people seeking treatment with my condition at this clinic have had to fundraise, which is what I am seeking to do.

The average cost of treatment at Spero ranges from $32,000 to $41,000 depending on the severity of one’s condition. It is my hope to raise at least $60,000 to $70,000, which would cover the cost of treatment, travel, lodging, and food for myself and another person who will accompany me to assist in getting to my appointments.

The Spero Clinic has its own website and YouTube channel with many success stories posted on it. They may be found here.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story. I hope you will prayerfully consider lending your support so that I may continue my journey to priesthood.

May God bless you.

In Christ through Mary,

Julian Young
