Default Over the counter Beta Blocker? Natural Herb?

Are there any over the country natural herbs or anything that work like beta blockers?

They won't be as potent as real beta blockers. Go to your doc, beta blockers are easy to get IMHO.

I was going to say that herbal tea tends to slow my heart rate down noticeably, but Medline is right - beta blockers are pretty common; they're not difficult to be prescribed and they're more effective than herbal alternatives. If you're having a hypertensive crisis, I doubt you'll have the time or patience to make a nice cup of chamomile tea
