What is Homeopathy & Warning Signs of Incompetent HomeopathsPlease click on my username to know about me. It will help you establish the reliability of what is written below.
WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY
It was discovered by a German doctor, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in around 1784. What he observed was that a substance known to cause the symptoms of disease in a healthy person will induce a cure of those very symptoms, if administered in a sick person. The homeopathic medicines are called remedies. They are made by diluting a substance (e.g. a plant extract) in a special way.
HOW IS HOMEOPATHY SAFE
Homeopathic remedies are made using a special dilution process which makes the remedies safe when used properly.
There are no physical ingredients of the substance in the final product (above 12c potency) from which the homeopathic remedy is made, hence it is non-toxic.
There are a few different ways to conduct homeopathic dilutions but the most commonly used method involves taking one drop of the extract of the substance e.g. plant extract and mixing it with 99 drops of water. This mixture is then shaken upto 10 times by hitting it against something hard. This process is called succussion. This mixture now is called a dilution of 1C where C stands for centesimal. Then one drop is taken from this mixture of 1C and mixed with 99 drops of water and succussed. This new mixture is now called 2C. You continue going on in this way to obtain 30C, 200C and so on. In this way the homeopathic remedies are prepared.
Most commonly used potency is 30C. A high school student can tell you that after a dilution of 12C, there is no physical presence of the main extract from which the remedy is made (due to the Avogadro's law) thus making the remedies safe & non-toxic.
HOW DOES HOMEOPATHY WORK
No one knows how homeopathy works. There are several theories but nothing conclusive.
The present understanding of science can't offer the explanation of how homeopathy works. Some critics say its placebo. But had it been placebo, it wouldn’t have worked on animals, infants & children.
PRACTICE OF HOMEOPATHY
The founder of homeopathy Dr. Hahnemann practiced and taught everyone to follow these cardinal rules:
1. Administer only a single remedy at a time
2. Choose the remedy based on totality of symptoms
3. Give the minimal dose
Anyone who follows these principles is called a Classical Homeopath or a Hahnemannian Homeopath.
Choosing a single remedy out of thousands is not easy and only someone who has a deep understanding of homeopathy can do that. That's why many incompetent homeopaths have resorted to giving a mixture of several remedies since they are unable to find the one right remedy and fear failure. While this approach may work for acute cases e.g. common cold etc., it spoils the chronic cases making subsequent cure difficult.
WARNING SIGNS & WHAT NOT TO DO
If someone is doing any of the following, no matter what or who he claims to be, you should be very careful as these are WARNING signs of incompetence:
1. If someone is giving you several remedies at the same time
2. If someone is giving you repeated doses of remedies without seeing the effect that a single dose has
3. If he is unable to explain why he chose that remedy
4. If you read the Materia Medica of the remedy selected for you and it doesn’t contain anything related to your illness
For homeopathic treatment, try to find someone who practices Hahnemannian homeopathy also called Classical Homeopathy.

I just went through the link you gave,I have to say only one thing about it,"science is evolving ,it will have to go a long long way to testify the homeopathy,If todays science cant prove ,thats the problem of science and not of homeopathy.The patient doesn't want to know whether the method of treatment is science proven or not,they want quick relief,which homeopathy gives much-much faster than Allopathy. We can discuss all this if you ring me.Good night
