ge- is a prefix -zond- is cognate with the english sound, as in safe and sound (and I think related to latin sana) and -heit is a suffix, in english often replaced with -ness (closest translation for the word is wellness or actually soundness, but the literal meaning is health)

Hope this helps with remembering. Breaking a word down like this and analysing always helps me anyway :)

Yea and I would totally pronounce it differently, apart from things like ga- instead of ge-. You will put the pause and emphasis in different places, this will be more like ga-zun-tite. While it is gesúnd--heit ("ge-" sort of pronounced like kuh, but a very soft k)
