Heal and Heel :

Heal is what you do when you get better.

Your heel is the back part of your foot.

Achilles’ heel was the only place the great warrior could be wounded in such a way that the injury wouldn’t heal.

Thus any striking weakness can be called an “Achilles’ heel.”

To remember the meaning of “heal,” note that it is the beginning of the word “health.”
