Curing a Candida infestation with oxygen is very questionable to say the least. There’s no research available (that I’ve found) stating evidence that shows the increase of oxygen results in damaging or decreasing yeast. When yeast is activated it’s naturally exposed to air/oxygen, and oxygen doesn’t destroy the yeast nor does it inhibit the fermentation process by the yeast, which is the basic cause of Candida. Instead, it continues to generate its energy just as cancer cells do when exposed to oxygen.
My guess is that the doctor is curing patients with the protocol he instructs them to follow, but charging for the oxygen therapy which isn’t necessary. It’s been shown in research that if you tell a patient that you have a ‘therapy’ that is guaranteed to cure them of their disease, but that its success depends on them following a certain chain of instructions (such as a protocol), then they’re more like to follow the protocol they’re given. It’s the same thing as selling a diet pill along with instructions to go on a described diet and exercise program. Sure it works, but because of the diet and exercise, not the pills.
