Happy to report I watched the entire video during the FREE window.  (Thanks Karen for the heads-up!)

I found the information given to be presented in a clear and helpful manner with plenty of demonstrations.  I'm sure it would be extremely useful for people living in the southwestern parts of the U.S. and below due to the plants used in the demonstration being readily available.  It was a bit harder for me as I've never seen prickly pear in Alaska although Doug said it's available in all 50 states.  That isn't a show-stopper, of course, as there are other plants suitable for use in every region for making poultices.  It's just a matter of figuring out what they are with a little help.  

Having personally dealt with a serious infection that resulted in an amputation, I do believe in poultices as a method of healing.  However, it's important to know everything you need to know about using these methods long before you find yourself in a crisis situation.  Learning on the fly can have the wrong results.  As the video noted repeatedly, we are responsible for the choices we make in life and that includes our health and healing.

Just my thoughts.....

P.S.  If this is a topic you're interested in, I highly recommend the video.  Although it seems a bit long and drawn-out (I'm not a "sit down long" kind of person), Doug interjects enough personal stories to keep things interesting.

I watched it all. With some pauses I needed, because I can't keep my concentration there long enough.
Many of the plants he mentions do not grow here in the Netherlands. I know some of the medicinal plants that are growing here (garlic, plantain, but also some he doesn't mention). I understand now I have to get more used to them, try them on myself, get to know more. Very interesting subject!
