It's well known that there are four main categories of persons who offer a korban toda (or say hagomel) to thank God, one of which is מי שהיה חבוש בב׳ האיסורים, someone who was bound by the two prohibitions.

What are the two prohibitions, and why does someone who was bound by them thank God?

You're reading it wrong: it's not בב׳ האיסורים, by the two prohibitions, but בבית האסורים, in jail. And the reason someone who was חבוש there needs to thank God is that חבוש כמבושל.
