Euphoria has its origin in the Greek and is obtained from the word 'euphoros'. Later, this word was taken into Latin. This word 'euphoros' is formed of 'eu' and 'pherein'. The 'eu' in 'euphoros' means good and 'pherein' means to bear. Thus, euphoros means healthy. It could also mean 'a feeling of great happiness or well-being'. The person who bears this feeling is denoted as euphoric. The things which deliver such happiness are also denoted as euphoric.

Foe example: hearing the news of the birth of his first child he was in a state of euphoria. Euphoria in this sentence explains that he was experiencing extreme happiness. 

Some of the words that could be used for euphoria could be: 
  • bliss
  • health
  • sanity
  • soundness
  • vigor
  • perfect health
  • good health
  • excellent health
  • robust health
  • rude health
  • bloom. 

Incorruption, incorruptibility, good state of health, clean bill of health, eupepsia, and St. Anthony's fire are some other words in Roget's Thesaurus that could be used for euphoria.
