To set the start point at the origin (0,0), calculate the slope as:
slope = x(:) \ y(:);
for example:
x = 0:0.1:10;
y = rand(size(x));
slope = x(:) \ y(:);
plot(x, y, '.b')
hold on
plot(x, slope*x, '--r')
hold off

I do not have the Curve Fitting Toolbox (since I do not need it for what I do in my research). This requirement was not implied or stated in the original Question you posted.
Without your data, I cannot code a similar function using the Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox or the Optimization Toolbox functions, both of which I have and frequently use. I would need more information to provide an appropriate response.
