Panacea

Panacea (Gr. all-healing) A universal remedy. An answer or solution for all problems. Panacea (Goddess of Cures) was the daughter of Aesculapius (God of Medicine). In the Middle Ages the search for the panacea was one of the self imposed tasks of alchemists. Fable tells of many panaceas, such as Promethean Unguent (which rendered the body invulnerable), Aladdin’s Ring, Medea’s Kettle, Prince Ahmed’s Apple and so on
