I totally agree with Meatpuppet about the water and food, and we need to know your water parameters and water changing schedule.
FYI, rainwater has atmospheric pollutants in it (like acids, smog, particles, etc. thanks to us humans polluting the air) that aren't good for anybody, that's why we have water treatment plants for our drinking water...so don't use rainwater. If you're referring to a fancy distilled water brand, don't use that either. Use tap water that's been treated with water conditioner.
Also make sure that you have your betta in a heated, filtered tank that's 2.5 gallons or larger. Bettas in small cold unfiltered tanks get sick a lot and they won't live very long.
