How is homeostasis maintained in the digestive system?

Homeostasis is maintained by negative feedback - For example.....a thermostat controlling temperature. When the temp goes down, the thermostat senses it and turns on the heat. When it gets to hot, negative feedback occurs - that is, the heat sends a signal back to the thermostat which exerts a negative effect on the heat production -- it turns it off. Then, when it gets too cold again, the cycle repeats. Therefore, our house maintains a kind of homeostasis.

Ps: sorry if this ins't right i tried my best ^^
