Summary: This booklet was published by the Brinkley Hospitals of Little Rock, Arkansas. Brinkley moved his hospital operations to Little Rock from Milford, Kansas, after his Kansas medical license was revoked. The cover of the booklet indicated that the Brinkley Hospitals are "for the treatment of enlarged and infected prostate glands, rectal and colonic diseases, varicose veins, hernia, or rupture." He changed the name of his radio station to XERA and it was located in Villa Acuna, Coahuila, Mexico, just across the border from Del Rio, Texas, where the Brinkley's had a home. This volume claims that XERA is the most powerful radio station in the world. The pamphlet is a revised version of an earlier Brinkley hospital publication titled Your Health (Kansas Memory item 210693). It includes illustrations to accompany the medical information. There are some editing marks so this copy may have been used to plan a revision. It is an expansion of the information contained in "After Twenty One Years" (Kansas Memory item 213226).
