"A therapeutic fast of 4-7 days with only water kick starts the keto process."

That will certainly have a profound effect on ketosis. But even as a fasting proponent myself, I simply cannot get behind a water-only fast for longer than about 36 hours.  
At the very least, make it a mineral water fast. . .
Water-fasting in the long-term is seriously problematic, starting with a big lack of electrolytes. Water-fasting has been proven to induce health problems. I fast while supplementing with a few low-dose vitamins in drink form, some weak tea, a sip or two of vegetable juice with salt, and maybe a half-teaspoon of highly-diluted whey protein if I start feeling ill, and usually days 2 through 3 I take a tiny bit of coconut oil to help assist the transition of switching-over to fat-burning.

Albedo,

Sorry for the delay. Phosphohexose isomerase does not appear on the list of tests at http://www.lef.org/Vitamins-Supplements/Blood-Tests/Blood-Tests.htm

Thank you DDye. I am not sure about LEF's policy: I guess you need to have tests, such as the 3 x CA tests, which are approved by FDA. I am not sure PHI is, actually I think it is not. In any case it would be good to carry some of these tests at LEF for those who still like to take them. Some can be pretty expensive but you might be offering better deals.

E.g. here you have a list and some prices of tests including PHI: http://alternativecancer.us/cancer_testing.htm (e.g. I passed two times the AMAS of Oncolab which is quite controversial)

I am planning for PCA3 (prostate cancer) and HCG which are approved.

Related, I successfully passed a second coloscopy and will follow the development of what recently discovered as blood test to avoid a quite invasive test (see Colox and http://ask.lef.org/12099/Colon-Cancer---New-Blood-Test). OTOS, I must say a coloscopy is not such a big deal and if you have a malignant polyp it can be immediately removed.
