1 doctor agrees
In brief: No
There are no well done studies in the peer reviewed literature demonstrating the safety or effectiveness of any natural health remedies for ligament or cartilage healing.
A lifestyle of proper nutrition and regular exercise and avoiding excessive alcohol use, tobacco abuse, or obesity have been shown to optimize general healing, although not specifically ligament or cartilage healing.

In brief: Well-balance diet
A well-balanced diet and overall good nutrition habits are probably the best ways to maximize your bodies natural ability to heal injured meniscii or sprained ligaments.
There are no scientifically proven natural remedies that you can take to improve your healing capacity.
