Bastyr's Science Subset Ayurveda Weirdness

here, along the lines of Bastyr claiming science subset naturopathy subset homeopathy weirdness:

001. in the video "Inside Look: Ayurvedic Sciences Program"

"[the description points us to] [...and in the video we're told] Bastyr University Department of Ayurvedic Sciences [...] Bastyr program is the only university degree granting program in the this country that is regionally accredited program [...says] Dhaval Dhru, MD Department Chair, Ayurvedic Sciences [...] this program is heavily oriented toward clinical application of ayurvedic philosophies [] ayurvedic science";

so science subset ayurveda is the claim.

002.  Wikipedia cites:

the work "Semple D, Smyth R (2013). Chaper 1: Psychomythology. Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry (3rd ed.). Oxford University Press. p. 20. ISBN 978-0-19-969388-7"

and states "ayurveda medicine is considered pseudoscientific."
