A False Naturopathic 'Science Subset Naturopathy Subset Homeopathy' Claim: ND Egeland

here, words from 2014 NUHS student then 2016 practicing graduate ND Egeland regarding naturopathy and its homeopathy as being categorically "science":

001. we're told in the 2014 NUHS account YouTube.com video "Meet Naturopathic Medicine (ND) Student Alison Egeland" (2014) [vsc 2016-04-13; also at nuhs.edu here (2016 archived)]:
.

.
"[from the description] Alison Egeland is an ND student and a clinical intern at National University of Health Sciences' on-campus integrative medical clinic. Hear why she thinks naturopathic medicine has a bright future, and why she feels NUHS provides great preparation for future naturopathic physicians. Visit http://www.nuhs.edu to learn more about starting your degree in naturopathic medicine [...from the video] you're getting a world of experience [...] the cater to all of the alternative medicine, including the acupuncture, Oriental medicine, naturopathic medicine, chiropractic [...] I had a lot of favorite classes, the one that stands out the most to me is probably functional medicine [...] it kind of brought all of the basic science together [...] functional medicine just makes sense to me [...] so I think the future's very bright for naturopathic medicine [...]";

so, a broad categorical label of 'science subset the naturopathic'. A bright future of licensed falsehood. 

002. now fully licensed this 2016 and practicing, she tells us at her practice's bio. page "Alison Egeland, ND" (2016 archived):

"Dr. Alison Egeland obtained her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine at National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL where she graduated summa cum laude and Valedictorian of her class. Her undergraduate studies were completed at Northern Illinois University where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. She was inspired to pursue a degree in naturopathic medicine after struggling with her own complex, chronic health issues.  Practicing naturopathic medicine allows Dr. Alison to combine her love of science and research with her passion for helping others";

with homeopathy and detoxification on the page!  So, it's very sad to see such reversed values as the false claim 'science subset naturopathy subset homeopathy.'  This is "summa cum laude and valedictorian"?
