  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  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.
