It is important to repeat that blue light therapy uses the natural power and qualities of light for its effectiveness. If some chemical is applied or ingested to make it work, that is no longer blue light therapy, that is called photodynamic therapy. The two are NOT the same. Blue light therapy is when blue light alone is having the healing, balancing or therapeutic effect.
