panacea [pan-uh-see-uh]

(noun) Panacea is one of the most idealistic words in the English vocabulary; defined as a remedy for all ills and diseases in the world, it is a universal cure for all difficulties one faces in a global or personal experience. The origin of panacea stems from Greek mythology; Panacea was the goddess of Universal remedy. It is speculated that Panacea had an elixir or poultice, which healed the sick. This royal ancestry led to the utilization of panacea as the production of uniting the beauty of a healthy human condition as the cause of a solution. Therefore, a panacea is heavily wished to cure everything from the common cold to poverty. 

  • etymology:  Latin, from Greek panakeia, from panakēs all-healing,            from pan (pan) + akos (remedy)
