Homeopathy: Placebo, or Not?

Homeopathy is ridiculed as pure placebo quack pseudoscience by many who have never investigated it beyond discovering that it usually involves very extreme dilution of the medicinal substance. A Placebo is a substance having no pharmacological effect but given merely to satisfy a patient who supposes it to be a medicine. But homeopathy has been around for 200 years and is still extremely popular.  Anyone who believes the propaganda from unknowledgeable sources (e.g. Wikipedia, “Amazing” Randi, Quackwatch, etc.) that homeopathic remedies are placebo should consider the following:
Homeopathic Remedy Placebo
They work on babies, animals, plants and people in a coma. Biodynamic farmers use homeopathic remedies to repel pests and treat plant diseases No Effect
The correct curative remedy will initially cause a worsening of the condition being cured if it is given in too strong a dose. A placebo might only cause a temporary improvement of the condition being treated.
One can do a “proving” of an unknown homeopathic remedy by taking it repeatedly over several days and it will temporarily cause symptoms that one has never experienced previously. This is a repeatable scientific experiment used to determine the scope of a new remedy. A placebo will have no effect unless the individual taking it has been “prepared” by being told what they are taking.
One can treat simple acute (self-limiting) conditions (e.g. minor burns, minor injuries, insect bites, etc.) and see unusually rapid cures. A placebo might only cause a temporary improvement of the condition being treated.
One can get treated for long term chronic (non self-limiting) conditions and see a deep lasting cure. A placebo might only cause a temporary partial improvement of the condition being treated.
There is 200 years worth of extensive documentation from around the world, of the clinical successes of homeopathy for both acute and chronic conditions of all types.  Very little documentation. A few studies have been done with placebos.
Homeopathic remedies have been shown to have a very small electromagnetic signature. None
