Homemade Toilet Bowl Bombs!

In Colorado, I had an IV Chelation Clinic where we used IV nutritionals to help pull out toxins in the body.  One thing we noticed was that on Clinic Chelation days we literally had to clean the toilets three times per day. The toxins that our clients were releasing would leave a dark rim in the toilet bowl. So you know me, I set out to find a “solution.”  I came up with homemade toilet bowl bombs that we could put in the tank every morning at the clinic.  I tweaked the recipe a little here and there until I found just the right mix.  

PLEASE NOTE: Everything that we use in our environment that is chemical in nature contributes to weight gain.  Let me state that again: Fat-soluble toxins are known OBESOGENS (cause the body to strive for fat storage!!!)

So when I am looking to heal the metabolism, I look much further than the fridge.  I look under the sink, in the cabinets and get rid of anything and everything that can be slowing the metabolism down.

Here is my Recipe for Homemade Toilet Bowl "Bombs"

Blend 1 cup of baking soda, 1/4 cup of puréed lemon rinds. (I use my leftover I-Burn tea lemon peels, freeze and keep) and 1 1/2 tablespoons of liquid soap (I like Dr. Bronner's).  

Pour into an ice cube tray or small muffin tin and let it solidify overnight. Pop the "bombs" out and store them in an airtight container.

I freeze mine. Drop one into the toilet tank 1-2X per week and watch it fizz the bowl clean.

Here are 3 things I want you to think about and take action on!

  1. Remove: Any potential toxins from your environment that you can control.

  2. Release: Keep your colon moving and the liver detoxing.  The next Metabolism Revolution Challenge really focuses on these last two principals, (Release and Repair).  Please Join NOW!  We layer in the Metabolism Colon when we are releasing fat-soluble toxins.  It is loaded with magnesium citrate to support muscle relaxation and bowel elimination. Cape Aloe is added to support normal GI transit time and stool bulk. Triphala, a balanced blend of astringent fruits used extensively in Ayurveda, is present to support all phases of digestion, assimilation, and elimination. Gastrointestinal regularity, in turn, plays a fundamental role in detoxification, providing a major route for elimination of toxins.

  3. Repair: We must heal the gut and reduce inflammation of the GI tract.  My Metabolism Shake is loaded with turmeric, pre and probiotics, spirulina, lemon bioflavonoids, quercetin, and rutin that all help to reduce inflammation.  Remember inflammation slows the metabolism and reduces micronutrient absorption in the gut.
