miniflea: It's possible, but it isn't equally possible. The odds of her discovering a new compound that effectively treats her condition is considerably smaller than the odds of her just being plain wrong.

Normally, I'd agree, but it's not like she just sat around and did nothing. She ate friggin' tree bark. That significantly raises the odds that she stumbled on something, because she not only took an unusual step, but also ate a non-food item and didn't wind up seriously ill\dead.
