I use a Cuisinart Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt Maker (approx. $50) – a no fuss, no muss, super easy-to-use machine.
*NOTE: Cuisinart puts them on sale fairly often with a deal where you can buy a second freezer canister for free or a reduced price….so you can always have one in the freezer, when inspiration strikes!

The recipe is adapted from my favorite ~ wildly creative ~ ice cream cookbook, The Ultimate Ice Cream Book by Bruce Weinstein (1999, William Morrow and Company, New York).

With an interesting variety of minor health issues, I’ve decided to be my own client in my self-healing experiments. In the process, have assembled a journal of notes on my trial-and-observation method of learning.

12-8-2006 Notes from an email exchange with a friend

Interestingly, I, got “a raging yeast infection” (haven’t had one in years) a month ago – the last full moon around NOV 1st (2006). Just had another full moon on DEC 4th-5th. Is that when yours started? Wonder what the moon has to do with yeast infections? Am sure there must be a relationship…

Used steam distilled Essential Oils and nutrition to clear it up incredibly fast in a few days. Here’s what I did:
