I might try it again down the road when I feel my gut is a bit more healed.

3. Interpretation of the Lab Report - What Does All This Mean?
Detecting multiple species in a sample may be overwhelming, especially seeing species that you do not recognize. We are providing a complete picture of the microorganisms at the site the sample was taken from. If the sample was taken from an area of the host which has an established microbiome, (sinus cavity, mouth) interpretation can be more of a challenge. The following are points you should consider when reviewing our report.
When treating a chronic infection you are dealing with biofilm phenotype.
CDC and NIH “have estimated that biofilm infections now constitute 65% to 80% (respectively) of bacterial infections treated by physicians in the developed world.
All bacteria / microorganisms will move to a biofilm phenotype.
If we detect multiple species from a host site that is normally sterile, there is a high probability you are dealing with a Biofilm.[Emphasis added]
Fourth, biofilms might also play a role in the healthy gut, making it difficult to distinguish between pathogenic and healthy communities (4, 7).

For example, I've stopped taking curcumin at the moment, because it can negatively affect some other enzymes, like MAO-A. ... So, for at least some supplements, we might need to reassess from time-to-time if we need to keep taking them once we get over a particular hump.
