panacea (noun) pan-er-SEE-er

A (supposed) cure for everything - illnesses and problems.

It is their food, their medicine, their panacea for all evils.

George Orwell, The Spike (essay). Amazon

To the code-breakers of Bletchley, to the Cabinet, the Chiefs of Staff and certain commanders in the field, this intelligence was referred to (as if to some rare commodity or magic panacea) as 'Ultra'.

Irene Young, Enigma Variations: Love, War and Bletchley Park. Amazon

Extra warm-up matches are not necessarily a panacea.

Mike Selvey, Guardian, 19 December 2006. Guardian
