Wow, wow, wow. There aren't ANY homeopathic remedies that are proven to work. The entire premise is entirely false.

If you listen to the clip the nice man tells you why anything, paint chip or otherwise, cannot possible work. If you suck the little placebo under your tongue but there's only one drop in an ocean worth of it then you'll have to suck an awful lot of them to get even one molecule. (ref. Avogadro limit/number) If indeed you manage to suck an oceans worth of placebo and finally get your lucky molecule, what then does a molecule of nonsense do for your medical condition? The methodology and content are all bullshit.

None of them work or we'd never hear the end of it.
