Any type of cancer can cause significant symptoms and concern; however, bladder cancer is one of the most often overlooked types of cancer despite its aggressive symptoms. If you suspect you may have a bladder issue, your first course of action should be to see a doctor. But, natural remedies, such as baking soda, blackstrap molasses, and lemon, are important treatment supports.
What Is Bladder Cancer?
Bladder cancer is a fairly common condition that involves your bladder, or the organ in your pelvic region that contains urine. The condition generally begins in the cells that line the bladder and may spread to other parts of your system.
While it is often unclear what causes bladder cancer, several related factors have been identified. Some of the primary suspects for causing cancer include smoking, parasitic infection, radiation, and chemical exposure. In any case, some factor causes the cells in your bladder to grow and divide abnormally. This abnormal growth leads to the development of a tumor or mass of abnormal cells.
What Are the Warning Signs for Bladder Cancer?
A number of symptoms serve as warming signs that you may be developing bladder cancer. Some of the most common symptoms include blood in your urine, urine that appears dark brown or yellow or bright red in color, frequent urination, painful urination, back pain, and pelvic pain.
How is Bladder Cancer Treated Conventionally?
Conventional treatment for bladder cancer varies depending on the severity of your condition, which is why it is so important to see a doctor. In early stages, bladder cancer can be treated via surgery to remove the tumor, parts of the bladder, or your entire bladder. Additionally, immune-stimulating bacterial treatments as well as synthetic immune system proteins are often used to trigger the body’s disease-fighting response.
Are There Any Effective Natural Remedies?
Natural remedies are effective supports and go hand-in-hand with traditional medical treatment to treat bladder cancer safely and effectively. Some of the best natural remedies include baking soda, blackstrap molasses, and lemon. However, you may also benefit from a treatment known as the Budwig Diet; this is a treatment plan that focuses on feeding your body electron-rich foods to eradicate cancer cells.
1. Baking Soda
Cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment, so one of the key components to treating cancer is to adjust your body’s pH. You can effectively influence your pH positively by taking 2 teaspoons of baking soda diluted in 8 ounces of water daily. You can also use 2 tablespoons of baking soda in a tubful of bath water to enhance your treatment even more.
2. Blackstrap Molasses
Blackstrap molasses also helps to balance your body’s pH level. You can effectively adopt this treatment by taking 1-2 tablespoons of the syrup by mouth daily. The molasses also contains a number of important nutrients that will boost your immune system.
Lemon contains a potent amount of vitamin C – one of the most effective alternative cancer treatments. Drinking lemon water daily and simply adding lemon juice to any variety of the dishes you eat is an effective way to boost your vitamin C intake and gain beneficial antioxidant effects.
Cancer treatment often supports a holistic approach. Continue reading below for more suggestions from our readers.

[YEA] Hi. For the third time in a year, my husband found himself with bladder tumors. The first time, he was told they were pre-cancerous. The second time: "developing cancer tumors". This time, the scan, which he was seeing too, showed one of them to be much, much worse--round with a lot of white looking bubbles. There were three in all. We were concerned.
The pre-surgery physician said they were low-grade cancer.
He was scheduled for surgery in three 1/2 weeks. I immediately put him on:
1) one teaspoon baking soda with one teaspoon molasses in water--twice a day. STIR WELL. It's recommended to heat it to make sure it's mixed well, though my husband didn't. I already knew that this helped one guy get rid of his high PSA, and saw a lot of other testimonies on the net.
2) 20 mg Astaxanthin--this is a powerful anti-oxidant, and is that which makes lobsters red. I had this gut feeling it also might help since I've read about a connection between inflammation and tumors!
Surgery was today.... And to the amazement of the surgeon, they were completely GONE. I wasn't amazed and all I could do was laugh.
I later asked the surgeon innocently (since allopathic doctors tend to yawn about alternative treatments): what do you think caused them to disappear? He said "they may have been inflammation, since inflammation and cancer look the same. " When I asked how could that just disappear, he was clueless.
Were they cancer or where they inflammation? All I know is that when you read scholary articles, inflammation has long been associated with the development of cancer. They can be one and the same!!
So did the baking soda or the astaxanthin do this?? I don't know if it was one or both. BUT IT APPEARS TO HAVE WORKED.
I will keep him on baking soda (probaby without the molasses and a little less but twice a day) and astaxathin. I'll report how it goes as time goes by.
