The nightmares and sleep disruption is usually caused by body irritation. I would get him check for food allergies and clean up his diet as much as possible (I know it's hard when a kids favorite food is a hot dog to get them to like raw veggies and grains!)
I would cut out gluten ASAP that's a big one.
And also sugar where ever you can, although brown sugar is better than the bleached white sugar but neither are good, if you are desperately looking for a sweet healthy alternative "stevia" and coconut sugar are your best options!
Good luck!!

Yes!!

Hi, I'm sooooo happy you asked!
I don't like to push my crunchy granola mama ways on people, but I'm always happy when people ask!!

As a disclaimer first, I'm going to tell you that I'm a nutritionist, Mama, and Studied homeopathy and alternative medicine for an MD!

I'm NOT however an MD (yuck), I'm not the biggest fan of hospitals, doctors, or western medicine.

So that being said here goes, 80% of behavioral problems can be CURED with the right diet!

Here is what i have done with my nephews, 2 of them were diagnosed with ADHD and ADD, and i convinced my sister to give me a shot before she gave them meds, and it's been 3 years and there has been no need for meds!

First I made sure all gluten was cut from there diets, gluten is the protein in wheat, I cut out all sugar, (except for fruit), and all processed shit (excuse my language).
This alone made a huge difference! And I gave my sister a ton of homeopathic medicines, list goes on for DAYS, I would be happy to send it to you if you're interested.

Here is a great homeopathic website! http://www.healing-arts.org/children/ADH...
