Developnient and introduction of the method of endogeni phototherapy into clinical practice using an autonomous stimulator has the aim to increase therapeutic efficiency of the given method. One of the directions allowing to solve this problem seems to be the use of chemical compounds having active optical properties. Natural and artificial food pigments, medicinal preparations, e.g. chiorophyllipt, aniline dyes as well as pigments of an organism excreted to the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) (e.g. bilirubin) can be such substances. The results ofmodification ofthe method ofendogenic phototherapy are studied in clinical trials with the help of such forms of substances as chiorophyllipt (mixture of eucalyptus chiorophylls), methylene blue, carotene as well as food pigments, e.g. red beet juice and some others. It is shown that these substances can both potentiate and reduce therapeutic effects of endogenic phototherapy (endogenic photostimulation). Of great importance is keeping a regimen of taking the proposed device and pigments per os. Thus, application of food and medicinal pigments in the method ofendogenic phototherapy enlarges considerably the range ofits use in medicine.
