From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Asa
    physician, son of Abijah and grandson of Rehoboam, was the third
    king of Judah. He was zealous in maintaining the true worship of
    God, and in rooting all idolatry, with its accompanying
    immoralities, out of the land (1 Kings 15:8-14). The Lord gave
    him and his land rest and prosperity. It is recorded of him,
    however, that in his old age, when afflicted, he "sought not to
    the Lord, but to the physicians" (comp. Jer. 17:5). He died in
    the forty-first year of his reign, greatly honoured by his
    people (2 Chr. 16:1-13), and was succeeded by his son
    Jehoshaphat.
