From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    Asa, afflicted with some bodily malady, "sought not to the Lord
    but to the physicians" (2 Chr. 16:12). The "physicians" were
    those who "practised heathen arts of magic, disavowing
    recognized methods of cure, and dissociating the healing art
    from dependence on the God of Israel. The sin of Asa was not,
    therefore, in seeking medical advice, as we understand the
    phrase, but in forgetting Jehovah."
