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