The rising rate of chronic diseases among children is alarming. ADHD, Autism, digestive issues, and obesity are becoming more common. Luckily, Integrative and Functional approaches can really help!

Due to the chronic disease crisis in our country, the children being born in this decade are the first generation expected to have shorter life expectancies than their parents. Modern medicine and pharmaceuticals cannot keep up, and they cannot keep people healthy. Golden Road loves its children members, and feels that it is never too early to start a life of prevention.

Dr. Courtney specializes in using integrative therapies to help calm and balance kids with ADHD, while helping to support them, and to decrease their stimulant use. Common nutrient deficiencies are addressed and repleted, and therapeutic whole food diets are implemented with great success.

Due to the overuse of antibiotics, and the increase of GMO foods, kids today are more commonly found to have leaky gut, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (diarrhea and/or constipation), food allergies, and stomach pain.

Dr. King works with parents to implement short personalized diet protocols, with supportive supplement nutrition, to allow the gut to heal.

The epidemic of childhood obesity in our country is disturbing and is causing an earlier onset of diabetes and heart disease. An obese 3-yr old was recently the youngest to be diagnosed with Type 2 (formally “adult onset’) diabetes. 

Golden Road helps implement low toxin lifestyles, early healthy eating, and regular exercise in nature, which are crucial to keep our kids healthy and preventing chronic disease and obesity.


With the new vaccination laws in California, it is more important than ever to keep other preventable toxins away from our kids.

There are safer ways for our children to receive their vaccinations prior to kindergarten, including alternate schedules (allowing their bodies to be better able to deal with toxins and to mount improved immune response), detoxification strategies prior to and after shots, avoidance of Tylenol, and being in optimal health at the time of vaccination.

Some kids have genetic dispositions, allergies, or family histories that make vaccinations riskier for them than for others.

Dr. King is happy to implement the right vaccination strategies for her youngest patients.
