Should Pranayam be done every day? If yes when is the best time?

Yes, it is good to do Pranayam every day. Every morning and/or evening, for 5 to 10 minutes. Morning is better because the mind is less agitated. However, time is not a factor. Whenever you can find time to sit and practice for 5 to 10 minutes, do it. Place is also not a concern, but a well-ventilated place is the best.

How do I do Pranayam as a part of Pancha Bhoota healing?
Pranayam is a part of Pancha Bhoota and if coupled with the other four elements of healing, gives much better healing results. It could be done after water therapy in the morning and before or after the Pancha Bhoota yoga. If you do not have time then it can be practiced in the evening, even though morning is a better time.

Are there problems associated with the practice of Pranayam?. Yes; and the  reason is that most people do not adopt the natural course. They begin to inhale and exhale for long intervals and that makes them sick. Be natural in every part of this breathing process. Make efforts, do your best to lengthen every process, but do not fatigue yourself.  If after performing only the first two processes, say, the inhalation and keeping the breath in your lungs you feel tired, stop. You are under no obligation. The next day be more considerate; continue with the remaining processes; be judicious.
