It's almost impossible to do because your email address was probably lifted somewhere and that's why you're getting unwanted (spam/phishing?) emails and texts. Change your password just in case.

I have changed my phone number and registered with DO NOT CALL. 
Is there  a two-factor authentication for incoming text or email?

DO NOT CALL never worked for me because spammers just spoof phone numbers so it's very difficult to keep it current.  If you've changed your phone number and are still getting the spam/phishing attempts (I'm assuming these are spam/phish attempts coming from numbers you don't recognize) then I'd look into where you have your phone number publicly located (websites, etc). I don't know if TFA is available for incoming texts/mail.
