In brief: Epsom salts
Take epsom salt - the one you can take orally mix 1 tablespoon with water - add lemon juice if you want to mask the taste keep drinking this every half hour until blood pressure comes down - this has magnesium make you have diarrhea but will relax the blood vessel wall and drop pressure quicker.
