Julia Bradbury, 50, has undergone a mastectomy after having been diagnosed with breast cancer. Today, she gave her fans an update following the surgery, as she shared a photo of herself enjoying a country walk and spending quality time with nature.
The star posted a snap of herself hugging a tree as she spoke about the benefits of having “healthy forests”.
Julia typed: “Trees communicate with each other; in healthy forests, they’re connected through underground fungal networks.
“They share water and nutrients through these networks. They even send distress signals about drought and disease.
“Nature is amazing. We need nature. We are nature,” she added.
While pictured holding onto a tree, Julia divulged she was letting go of her ill health and welcoming a bright and healthy future amid her breast cancer battle.
She continued: “I release all disease from my body and welcome health, love happiness and abundance into my life.”
In response, her followers sent her messages of positivity, as they agreed there was “no better medicine” than nature.
@JulzElsbury commented: “Positive thinking and the natural world. No better medicine. Good luck. There are many people sending you positive thoughts.”
While @Flowers00 remarked: “Very well said darling, with much love and all good wishes for a speedy recovery.”
@Annditchburn typed: “@JuliaBradbury I never knew this isn’t this world fascinating, sending positive thoughts to you.”
From her hospital bed, the Countryfile star shared a photo of her hooked up to medical drains on Monday and said that she felt “relief” the operation was over, because the anxiety leading up to the surgery had been “overwhelming”.
She wrote: “I’m out of surgery. These will be my new companions for the coming weeks and months.

“I need a drain to channel surplus blood from the surgery and I have to wear a special post-breast surgery/mastectomy designed bra for the next 6 weeks to protect my upper body post-op. (This one is by @theyahealthcare – made of bamboo fibres). The marks on my chest are markers for my surgeon to follow during the op.”
She added: “I feel relief that the operation is over. The anxiety leading up to it was overwhelming.
“I feel sad that such a brutal treatment is necessary in so many breast cancer cases, but I choose life. I will do anything I can to live to see my children grow up and if this was happening to any other member of my family, or them, I would swap places in a heartbeat.”
“I will follow Walt Whitman’s advice, ‘Keep your face always toward the sun and the shadows will fall behind you.’ To all you warrior women (and men) out there, I send my love.
“I’ll hold a little of my strength to get through the next few weeks and months. Namaste. The sacred in me recognises the sacred in you.”
Julia has the loving support of her children Zeph, 10, and twins Zena and Xanthe, six, as well as her husband Gerard Cunningham.
Her diagnosis followed a mammogram she booked in July on an annual recall.
The previous year she found a lump which was a cluster of benign micro-cysts.
She concluded: “I’ve now joined a sadly ever-growing club. Around 18,000 mastectomies are performed on the NHS in England every year.
“That’s up 50 per cent in the past 10 years. (Roughly 100,000 women have a mastectomy in the U.S. every year.) Since the ’90s breast carcinoma in situ (the type of cancer I was diagnosed with) has tripled in women and doubled in men. One person every 10 minutes gets diagnosed with breast cancer.”
